“Accrington Stanley’s sessions have been amazing. Our Key Stage 2 children have increased in confidence; shown improved social skills; as well as making a significant progress in their fundamental skills. This positive impact has been noticed throughout school life and this is a result of their enjoyment and participation in all the activities delivered by the Accrington Stanley coaches. The coaches have worked alongside our own staff and have showed enthusiasm throughout the sessions. The sessions are well planned and provide a structure for those children with extra needs, who sometimes struggle.”
