FREE judo lessons have been organised for students at Cooks Spinney Primary Academy in Harlow.
The classes are aimed at Key Stage 2 pupils at the academy and have been arranged to provide students with a different form of exercise to participate in, as opposed to football.
Neil Stirrat, headteacher of the academy, said: ““The judo club adds a bit of variety to what our pupils can take part in and gives an alternative to those who may not want to play football.
“It is also giving them an opportunity to try something they may never have tried before. It teaches them discipline and strategy and it’s great for their fitness.”
He also mentioned that sports clubs outside of schools can be costly, which is one of the reasons why the school are pleased to offer the judo sessions for free.
Parents and/or guardians will also not be charged for the necessary sports kit as the academy wants to ensure the classes are accessible to all.
