We are working very hard in involving our community with our school. Mr Wildey and Miss Shallcross have contacted a range of external providers who are in Wakefield and have the same drive to get children being more active. Some of these clubs have held taster sessions for different year groups to encourage them to become more active and also join a new club with the opportunity to making new friends and opening doors to the future.
Durkar JFC have been a fantastic partner to St James over the past couple of years. The Executive Board led by Faye Geary have supported the school and allowed us to use their facilities for our Kettlethorpe Football League matches. The club is very welcoming and have the same ethos as our school that the children can play football in a supportive and safe environment. Durkar FC is a local club to St James and has teams from U7 to U17 including an ever growing girls section. The club is very accommodating, the coaches are FA Level 1 or 2 qualified and the club allows children to come along for taster sessions.

We have had taster sessions with Tots Coaching previously who have worked with Reception and Key Stage 1 with ball skills, team building and team games. The coaches have worked amazingly with the children, building up good relationships and providing excellent sessions for the children. Tots Coaching have a wonderful extra curricular programme which includes: football first kicks club (3 to 6 years) and also a TC Performance Academy (7-10). The First Kicks Club works closely with many local football teams as well to feed into creating a new team once they reach U7s. Tots Coaching also have a rugby club designed for 3 to 6 year olds.
