We can help children to
love being active

Children are less active than they were 20 years ago. It’s a fact.

As a nation, we have some of the worst child obesity in the western world. 1 in 3 children now leave primary school overweight or obese.

Plus, 1 in 5 girls and 1 in 4 boys don’t do any sport outside of school.

Yet, there is so much research that active kids do better:

Better academic performance. Better behaviour. Better health. Better lives.

Our mission is to cheerlead all the benefits of being active and reverse the decline of physical activity by working with schools and in our local community to not only provide opportunities but help children to enjoy being active.

HERE'S WHAT OUR
CUSTOMERS
SAY...

“Progressive Sports led a very successful competition day at Hob Hill Primary. As well as them organising an enjoyable day of athletics for the children, they also brought two athletes, who inspired the children – and staff! Daniel Caines provided awe and wonder to the children, sharing his experiences as a medal winning international athlete, while Robbie Gleeson showed that children how an aspiring young sportsman can progress in his field. The event was really well run, great fun, and is what we have come to expect from the PS coaches.”

Ben Preston Headteacher - Hob Hill Primary

Nova Primary has been working in partnership with Progressive Sports since January 2020. As headteacher, I have worked with organisations providing similar offers but none have been as efficient or enthusiastic. Progressive Sports staff facilitate a range of roles in the school including cover teachers, sports coaches for classes/clubs and sports mentors for children who need social and emotional support. I can honestly say that we love having them here and the children do to. They have been incredibly supportive throughout the pandemic and always pay attention to safety guidance. I recommend would them whole-heartedly to any setting.

Partner School Head Teacher Testimonial Anna Morris Nova Primary School Head Teacher

Three of our children attended a multi sport day and all came back really happy and had an excellent time. My partner also commented on how enthusiastic the coaches were and how good they all were with the children. The costs were really reasonable too. Highly recommended.

Ben Langdon Holiday Club

Progressive Sports have been supporting our school, Barley Close, for many years. What started out as PE coaching has developed to a close partnership covering all aspects of school life. As well as supporting staff CPD they run a variety of sports clubs but can offer a variety of sports, if we want a specific sport they will find a coach who can deliver.

They have adapted with the ever changing challenges schools face- health and wellbeing is a huge area for our pupils so we spoke to Progressive Sports- they now offer us ELSA, weekly well being sessions, mentoring support and as they are all amazing role models to our young people the impact is incredible. We can see children growing in confidence, building better relationships and even in lockdown this work continued virtually. We also use them for PPA cover, so not only sport they follow our subject plans, our curriculum and school policies.

It in nutshell nothing is too much trouble or impossible and we are lucky and very proud that they are part of our school community.
