First Class Supply Schools Connections Programme

The First Class Supply Schools Connections Programme aims to develop strong partnerships with schools in Northumberland, Durham, Cumbria and Teesside. This is achieved by supporting our Affiliated School’s development through increasing participation, recruitment of new players, development of coaches and incentivising ambassadors who assist with our work.

As a Falcons Affiliated School, educators can tailor their own delivery programme with 35 hours of Newcastle Falcons Community Coaches. This can include player visits and guest coaching sessions along with numerous benefits and incentives.

Becoming a Falcons or Thunder Affiliated School through our First Class Supply Schools Connections Programme entitles you to 35 hours of in-school coaching delivery, priority booking on CPD events and entry into our Schools Competition at Kingston Park.

There are 3 levels of affiliation (Gold, Silver & Bronze) including a variety of benefits include player appearances, 50 x free match day tickets, school ambassador kit, match day programme article, signed merchandise, stadium visits. We ask each affiliated school to appoint a “School Ambassador” who will be our main contact at the school.

First Class Supply have built an unrivalled reputation for investing in the community. They were highly commended at the North East Charity Awards in the “Outstanding Charity Support” category in recognition of partnerships with organisations including the Newcastle United Foundation and Seven Stories the National Centre for Children’s Books, as well as for their continued ongoing support for their partner primary, secondary and SEN schools.

Director Lesley Robinson said ‘We work hard to build true, long lasting partnerships with schools and it’s vital that all our teaching staff feel values. We are extremely proud to be the largest independent supply provider in the area, and are delighted that we are now working with the Falcons to deliver exciting, rugby-based projects to schools throughout the North East.’
