Field Place Infant School are hosting an inspirational workshop with Antonio Infantino. Can you help us make it happen?

The School 


Everyone at Field Place is dedicated to ‘Building Bright Futures Together’. They aim to create a safe, happy and caring environment where every child is valued and respected as an individual. 

They are a Community Infant and Nursery School for children aged 3 to 7. They also have a Special Support Centre for children who have an education and health care plan, where their primary need is speech and language.

Their expectation of children is high.  They aim for all children to make excellent progress.  They want all children to leave them as confident readers, writers and mathematicians. They are proud of their dedicated staff team who are there to educate and nurture the children.  They work in very close partnership with parents and carers to support, recognise and celebrate all achievements.

They want all children to gain skills, which enable them to become citizens of the future and to lead confident, healthy and independent lives, making a valued and positive contribution to society.

Learning at Field Place is underpinned by an exciting curriculum, designed to deliver academic excellence and enrichment.  The four cornerstones of their curriculum are

  • The Power of Talk
  • Growth Mindset
  • Broadening Horizons
  • Love of the Natural World

They have excellent outside learning spaces which support a stimulating and challenging learning environment.

Who's coming? 


A three-time English Schools Champion, and Great Britain junior representative, I switched nationality to run for the country of my parents, who were both born in Italy.  I have since won two Italian Championship titles, and been a regular in the national team.  Recent international appearances include European Team Championships 2017 and 2019, and the European Championships in Amsterdam 2016, where I made the semi-finals of the individual and finished fifth in the relay.

This year I made my first appearance in the individual at the IAAF World Championships and ran personal bests of 10.06 and 20.27, ranking inside the top 50 in the world for both sprints and motivating me more than ever ahead of next year’s Olympic Games.

Who are we?


Sports For Champions UK (CIC) in partnership with Field Place Infant 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.  

Field Place Infant School is receiving an inspirational visit from renowned Professional athlete Antonio Infantino on the 14th of June 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?

Field Place Infant School need to recover and rebuild after the national lockdowns and with the help of a visit from Antonio Infantino 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.

Field Place Infant 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 Antonio Infantino and to raise funds for key resources for Field Place Infant 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.
