 New Delaval Primary School is set in a tranquil spot on the edge of Blyth overlooking the golf course and have been serving the community for over 100 years.

Children can join the school from the age of 2 years old until 11 years old when they transfer into the secondary sector. The school is set in extensive and attractive grounds, giving children plenty of space to learn and play. Even at the school each year group has its own dedicated outdoor learning area.

The commitment at New Delaval is to ensure that every child:

  • feels safe whilst at school
  • enjoys learning
  • makes excellent progress and learns as well as she/he can

Staff and Governors work together to provide the best possible education for the children in their care.

At New Delaval the teaching teams challenge and support every child to enable all the children to be the best they can possibly be, in their learning and in their personal development.  

Also Blyth New Delaval Primary School provide a broad curriculum.  The breadth of opportunity is seen in the wide variety of visitors who are invited into school to work with the children as well as in the range of visits undertaken by the children. To make learning enjoyable each day and for every child to learn something new while having fun.

Who's coming?

Ayaz was born with Robert's Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder which affects both upper and lower body limbs.  Ayaz is 3ft 7 inches tall and weighs 45kg.  Despite having spent most of his childhood and early teenage years in and out of hospital undergoing corrective procedures, Ayaz has always been a sports enthusiast and was always keen on taking part in sports.  Being the only disabled student at his primary school was a challenge, as due to fears of health and safety, Ayaz’s sporting activity was limited, until one day when he showed real capability in participating in a playground football game which helped break down some barriers.

During his college years, Ayaz struggled to cope with his disability.  During this period he was very inactive, became overweight and had little confidence. To help him overcome these issues, Ayaz started playing Wheelchair Basketball where his self-confidence improved over time. Wheelchair Basketball is a non-contact sport, something Ayaz never really grasped as he became accustomed to getting sent off pretty much every game!

Shortly after getting involved with Wheelchair Basketball Ayaz was scouted by Great Britain Wheelchair Rugby.  To qualify to play Wheelchair Rugby the participant has to have an impairment in 3 or 4 limbs.  It is also the only full contact Paralympic sport; something which caught Ayaz's attention.  After several months of training, Ayaz was called up to represent GB in a Four Nations tournament in Australia.  It was after this tournament that Ayaz was told that he probably wouldn't have a career internationally.

Despite this setback, Ayaz continued training and two years later he was selected for the GB Development team to compete at a tournament in Prague where he was named in the All Star team. After this, Ayaz was re-called into the GB Elite team and on his return tournament he was named in the All Star team.  Since his return, Ayaz has become a double European Champion, competed at two World Championships (one where he was voted the Fan's Most Valuable Player) and competed in his first Paralympics in Rio 2016. Ayaz is currently in training for the Tokyo Paralympics where he hopes to fulfil his dream of winning a Paralympic medal.

Who are we?

 Sports For Champions UK (CIC) in partnership with Blyth New Delaval Primary School and the local community are running a fundraiser to help support the mental and physical health of the pupils after the national lockdowns.

Great news! Sports For Champions UK (CIC) will soon visit your school! Youth are invited to join a sponsored fitness circuit led by a Professional athlete, who will educate, enable, and empower participants with a view to inspire them as champions of tomorrow.

While we’re not all athletically inclined we strongly encourage participation, because all youth have talent and require inspiration to pursue their dreams - whatever they may be! After 10 years of success, we can promise a highly memorable event!

SFC events are held in support of schools, which keep 60% of the funds raised to spend on resources that will enrich young peoples’ education/experience. Professional athletes in need of support are the only other beneficiaries from the remaining 40%. SFC is a government audited organization that is voluntarily registered with the Fundraising Regulator. You can support the initiative with assurance. 

During the assembly, SFC athletes show medals and tell their story, hard work, lessons, and insights shared to capture the imagination of all and inspire healthier active lifestyles. Athletes discuss challenges on the road to success, with resilience, nutrition, diet, and dedication forming key topics. Fitness is essential for every young person’s general wellbeing in physical and mental health. It is also proven to be a strong booster of learning potential or brain power. By inspiring children as champions of tomorrow, SFC envision youth growing in all walks of life as healthy, [pro] active community-minded talents.

Alongside Team SFC, athletes invest in local communities to avail of support with training-related costs (e.g. physio/travel). Most world-class athletes train a rigorous 35hr week and struggle to find reliable work that fits their schedule. This is how the funds we raise enable athletes and your school/club to realise their potential. Many pro athletes are unsponsored, lose support, or cannot find it.

Sports For Champions CIC offers schools the benefit of an added investment on resources/facilities, whilst helping athletes with the funds required to sustain their journey with a contribution towards training and competition fees, medical costs, equipment, and more.  

Blyth New Delaval Primary School will be receiving an inspirational visit from renowned Professional athlete Ayaz Bhuta on the 11th of November 2021 and we need your support!

The pupils will benefit from Physical activity, an inspirational talk including medal display and a Q&A session.

Why is this important?

Blyth New Delaval Primary School need to recover and rebuild after the national lockdown and with the help of a visit from Ayaz Bhuta the pupils and teachers will be given the tools to respond to issues like a pandemic, begin to focus on friendships and social engagement all while improving their physical and mental well being.

Blyth New Delaval Primary School will benefit from the money raised to invest in key front-line services and equipment.

How can you help?

We're asking all parents to help make it a memorable event for the pupils with the help of Ayaz Bhuta  and to raise funds for key resources for Blyth New Delaval Primary School.

If you are a local business or a friend of the school and would like to contribute to help us get to our target then please do make a donation and share our project as far as you can.
