120 school children tackling Twickenham

School children from across the country will be showcasing what they have learnt from a pioneering educational programme at the Aviva Premiership Rugby Final on 30 May at Twickenham Stadium.

This season, Premiership Rugby’s Aviva Tackling Numbers programme has been combining maths and tag rugby to reach youngsters across the length and breadth of England. When all eyes turn to Twickenham at the end of the month, 12 schools – one representing each Aviva Premiership Rugby team – will be in attendance, making their mark on the occasion.
 
"It is a showcase event and it will be an amazing experience for the children and a chance for them to put everything they have learnt to the test," said Sophie Hartley, Premiership Rugby’s Programme Delivery Manager.
 
"There will be 120 children taking part in a tag rugby demonstration in the middle of the pitch at half-time.
 
"Aviva Tackling Numbers involves an hour of classroom rugby-themed maths and then an hour of tag rugby each week for five weeks. The numerical games help them to build the skills to play tag rugby at the end of the programme."
 
The schools starring at rugby HQ are Corsham Primary School, Newton Poppleford Primary, Hempstead Primary, St Ann's Heath, Catton Grove Junior, Wildmoor Heath, St Michaels, Hayton CE Primary, Olney Middle, St John’s, St Paul’s C of E Primary School and Finham Primary.
 
"After a very successful first season, it will be fantastic to see some of the children who have taken part in the Aviva Tackling Numbers programme showing us their tag skills at half-time during the Aviva Premiership Rugby Final," said Debbie Bullock, Community Investment Manager, Aviva UK.
 
"This programme helps to educate young people and prepare them for their future, where basic numeracy and financial skills are a necessity.
 
"Through our partnership with Premiership Rugby, we are helping children to be more confident in maths, to increase their enjoyment of numeracy, and to build their money skills. We see this as an investment in their future financial security."
 
If you want to be at the world's biggest club rugby final, this year's Aviva Premiership Rugby Final on 30 May, tickets are still available from Premiershiprugby.com/final. Junior tickets start at £12.50.
