Partnering schools to achieve their aims
With a long history of providing high quality curriculum and extra curricular activities we deliver more than 20,000 activity sessions each month to schools across the UK. This amounts to more than five million visits a year, each one enriching the curriculum in every one of the thousands of schools we work in partnership with.
Our delivery, training and ethos is carefully planned with the help of our Educational Specialist, who has developed sports leadership strategies in partnership with the Association of Physical Education, the Youth Sports Trust, Sport England and Sports Coach UK amongst others. In addition we are an accredited training provider, meaning we deliver qualifications and skill the work force.
As a founding member of Ukactive Kids we continue to strive for excellence in the schools sector and have been actively campaigning to raise the standards of delivery within a school environment for every child and every school, whether we are the deliverer or not.
Measurement, impact and accountability at the touch of a button...
Our unique portal, bespoke to your school provides you, your teaching staff and department leads with a host of benefits and essential information that will support the full breadth of PE and physical activity which takes place within the school environment.
The Portal can integrate with your own school’s website and offers public information to parents.
School Sport Premium
We’re committed to ensuring schools receive the very best sport and physical activity provision. The government has pledged over £450 million on improving PE and sport within primary schools from 2013-2016 through the Schools Sport Premium. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. Through our online portal and pupil assessment, the criteria of this fund will be met and the work is all carried out by our professional deliverers.
This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - will be allocated to primary school headteachers
