South West schools qualify for national Child Victims of Crime tag rugby festival finals

 

 


 

The competition is the only national Tag Rugby Festival in the United Kingdom and was developed by Child Victims of Crime, the charity of the British Police rugby section, to promote children's health, safety and welfare and to encourage their social inclusion and community involvement.

 

The programme also helps to bring local communities together by enabling police forces to get involved with local schools and work with them to improve community relations.

 

The RFU recently appointed Matt Ferguson, the Luctonians and Stourbridge prop, to co-ordinate the Child Victims of Crime project in partnership with the charity. Ferguson previously worked as one of the RFU's Community Rugby Coaches and as an acting-Rugby Development Officer in the North Midlands.

 

Regional Tag Rugby tournaments are being held across the country to provide qualifiers for the finals day at Rugby School. At every tournament copies of the Child Victims of Crime safety publication 'Tackle Safety' are distributed.

 

St Walburghs Catholic Primary, School from Bournemouth, Trewirgie Junior School from Redruth, Willowbank Primary School from Cullompton, Yealmpton Primary School from Yealmpton in Devon, Parkfield Primary School from Taunton and Mount Charles School from St Austell have all won their local qualifying tournaments to secure places in the finals day.

  

The finals day will involve almost 450 youngsters aged eleven and under from across the country.
