"The coaches worked collaboratively with our team and engaged very well with the children to inspire them to participate and enjoy the 6 sessions that were rolled out to each of the schools. The feedback from the participating schools was fantastic and the children had fun.
I would thoroughly recommend the multi skills programmes and look forward to working with the team from JR Sports Stars again in the near future."

"It is inspiring to see Heathrow Airport and their stakeholder companies engaging with local schools for the JR Sports Stars initiative and giving back to the local community. BEUMER Group thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the sessions and seeing first-hand the value of the programme for the children at St Lawrence and Fairholme primary schools."
Peter Gilks - Managing Director, BEUMER Group UK
"Over the past 12 weeks, we have had the pleasure of having Balfour Beatty come into William Byrd and deliver a multi sports course for our year 3 classes whilst delivering CPD for the teachers. Balfour Beatty as a company delivered a great multi-sport course which met every expectation. We had a fantastic response from all the children when taking part in the activities and also being given the chance to meet an exceptional role model in Jason Robinson the 2003 world cup winner. All staff that attended the school from Balfour Beatty had great enthusiasm when delivering the sports, and was great with the children. The school has benefited from this program immensely as it was not only able to give the children extra PE lessons, but also helped them with bettering their social and communication skills. Over all we feel that everyone involved has benefited from this and it is definitely something William Byrd will do again in the future.
We hope to see the team again in the future and to have a great relationship going forwards."
Mrs Roberts, Head of School
"At William Byrd we try to offer as many different sports and activities as possible to the students. Having coach Chris and Jason helped greatly with being able to do this. It was fantastic having a great role model in sport visit the school, to show and speak about their experiences. Moving forward we will certainly be using Balfour Beatty again and hope to build a great relationship with them. As this has had a great impact on morale and skill for all students."
Mr Baker, Sports coordinator
"Children from year 3 have greatly enjoyed and benefited from their P.E lessons with coach Chris and Jason Robinson. 3P have been incredibly enthusiastic about their lessons and are always excited to practice their rugby skills. Coach Chris and his team worked with the children to develop their skills and understanding of the sport or different activities as the lessons progressed. As well as being introduced to a new sport, the children have built on their ability to work as a team by listening to each other and following given instructions. These P.E lessons were fun and educational."
Miss Panesar, Year 3 Teacher
"When the Heathrow people came and they were teaching us, it was fun. I learned a lot of different skills and experiences. I want to do a lesson with Coach Chris and Jason Robinson again."
"When Jason Robinson and Coach Chris came to our school I was amazed. I felt excited because I really wanted to learn some different skills. When we done P.E with him I really liked it, it was so fun. Then when we had the prize I was shocked at what I saw and when he left I keep doing his skills."
"I liked it a lot when Jason Robinson and Coach Chris came because it was really fun. We played lots of different activities and practiced lots of different skills. I really enjoyed playing with my friends and learning lots of new skills."
