SCHOOLS are being given their pick of packs which help tackle issues including drug use and bullying.

SAFC’s official charity, the Foundation of Light, has created packs highlighting the range of education and sports programmes it can deliver.

Former Education Minister Baroness Estelle Morris of Yardley, chairwoman of the Foundation of Light’s education board, launched the new guide at the Stadium of Light.

The pack contains details of 22 primary school programmes, 14 for secondary school and six aimed at over-16s, delivered by qualified and experienced Foundation of Light staff.

They cover a range of subjects, including raising awareness of issues that affect young people, from using football to boost the English, maths and science curriculum, to improving health and fitness in families.

Also at the launch were the Foundation chief executive Lesley Spuhler and Claire Johnson, deputy head at Broadway Junior School in Sunderland.
