Sport RCT School Spotlight


Our School Spotlight highlights the great work of schools, teachers and students across Rhondda Cynon Taf. We will use it to celebrate those that are using our programmes or their own ideas to get more children, more active, more often. Each month we will showcase a project that has had a positive impact on sport and physical activity in a school setting.

If you would like to tell us about a fantastic sport or physical activity project that your school, teachers or students have completed, please email us at

School Spotlight Hall of Fame

February 2023

Hafod Primary School: The schools’ Bronze Young Ambassadors applied to our school fund to set up a new Hockey after-school club. The funding allowed them to buy equipment and resources. The Ambassadors also loaned this equipment out during play time. Watch this video to find out more. 

March 2023

Aberdare Town Church In Wales Primary School: Pupil voice sessions uncovered that children felt stressed and worried, following the pandemic. With this in mind the school applied to our School Fund to develop a new Yoga after-school club. They hoped that this would have a positive impact on the emotional, mental and physical well-being of the children. The funding bought new equipment and a teacher agreed to deliver the sessions. A range of Yoga/Pilates stretches as well as mindfulness relaxation was delivered through story. All pupils enjoyed the sessions, with 100% of them stating that they felt happier and 83% stating that they were more confident. Watch this video to find out more.
