Inspiring Your Future Through Sport

+Sport Move and Learn Project

Bringing education and sport together to promote a healthy lifestyle and to get children moving 

Sheffield United Community Foundation has partnered with the Football League Trust and Ferrero UK to launch the + Sport Move and Learn Project, a national school-based educational programme for children aged between 9-10 as part of the global Kinder + Sport initiative. 

By combining six weeks of practical sporting sessions with classroom sessions, the programme encourages physical activity, promotes nutritional education and builds awareness of the importance of a healthy diet and active lifestyle.  The programme is delivered by local community trusts connected to leading national football clubs across the UK and Ireland.

The programme content is developed by nutritional and educational experts in line with the recommendations in the Government’s eatwell plate and the National Curriculum.

Sheffield United Community Foundation will be delivering the programme across 30 schools, reaching 1,800 children with 16,200 hours of activity and education. This is part of the project’s national target to move over 21,000 children and deliver over 190,000 hours of activity and education across the UK and Ireland.
