"We have been so impressed by James and his team at JR Football. Over the last year, they have set up and run a number after school sports clubs which have been extremely popular with our children. All the coaches have been punctual and polite and have developed positive relationships with staff, pupils and parents. We are very pleased to be associated with JR Football."

PE Lessons - PPA Cover

PPA is vital for any teacher's week, especially, with teachers workloads always increasing in primary schools, whether it is marking, valuable planning and preparation or maybe attending an essential meeting or course.


We completely understand, some schools struggle to find a trustworthy, cost effective solution to their PPA cover but that's why we only offer devoted, experienced and passionate coaches that have an enthusiasm to deliver quality PPA cover.


We are happy to cater to your needs, whether you want us in every week or just once to cover a one off absence we guarantee to run a high quality lessons with a vital combination of engaging the children whilst learning vital skills having fun.


There are numerous ways we can offer to help, as we understand every school is different so we do our best to cater to every circumstance, we can come in for a whole day and run multiple lessons, or a few mornings or afternoons in the week if the lessons are split up, here is an example of how we would operate in these different circumstances:

Lunchtime Games

Are you tired of sorting out little arguments of who won or ‘I didn’t get caught’? or even having to ban certain games such as bulldog!

Well we feel our Lunchtime games scheme is essential to schools in providing children with a controlled environment to exercise. By offering free and paid opportunities to get active during school time, facilitating the children to hit their 30 Minutes of Physical Activity. This also doubles as extra lunchtime staff cover, thus making it even more cost effective as it frees up members of staff to have a much needed lunch break or time for PPA.



  • These are normally sports clubs which are paid for by parents, they can also be school funded too

  • The best sports for these which don't require pupils to get changed for example, Soft Archery

  • We can run other sports too and will supervise children getting changed.

  • Parents can book on and pay through JR Football


Lunchtime Games

  • Normally runs as school funded drop-in sessions

  • Allows pupils free choice to get involved or can rotate children every week if there is high demand

  • Most schools run our clubs at least 2/3 times a week to reach more pupils and ensuring every class has an opportunity to take part

  • Mixture of easy to understand games such as Chicken and hero 

  • Coaches require a small amount of space, around 1/3 of a netball court.

After School/ Before School Clubs

"THANKS TO COACH JAMES.... My son has been attending JR football club for a couple of terms now. He's really enjoyed joining in... considering he didn't know anything about football before he started!! (Which I was concerned about)  but because the sessions are fun and inclusive, it's obvious my son gets alot out of  the sessions. Thanks Coach James for creating a safe and happy environment for our kids.’"
