“We have found the curriculum support highly effective in terms of developing teachers’ expertise and confidence. They have a more detailed understanding of a wider range of sports and their organisation of PE sessions is much improved. Pupils of different abilities are better challenged and teachers feel more able to use a wider variety of resources to support the learning.
The coaches are skilled both in terms of sporting ability and behaviour management and are also excellent coaches for experienced and less experienced teachers. Pupils of all ages look forward to the PE lessons and the extra-curricular clubs that are run by Sporting Steps.”

Hi guys! I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for the sporting steps days during the summer. My son (Euan) really enjoyed it. From what was originally going to be one day, went up to three days.. and would have been more, if we had been here! It really was great inspiration for Euan and he has loved playing cricket and rugby during the summer. He is now joining rugby sessions every weekend thoroughly enjoyed it. He’s already looking forward to the after school sports club!
Thanks guys! You’re playing a blinder!!!

“Sporting Steps provide safe, exciting and well-structured curriculum teaching as well as after-school coaching. The kids love the sessions and since Sporting Steps have come in, our after-school rugby club has never been so well-attended!”

“We have used Sporting Steps to provide sports coaching for all our children from nursery to year 6, and to run after school sports clubs for Year 1 and Year 2 pupils for the past six years and we have always been delighted with the high level of service that has been provided. Matthew, our sports coach is professional, calm and very positive in his dealings with the children, and works extremely well with both staff and parents. His coaching is carefully and thoroughly planned and he sets very high standards for the children which result in excellent outcomes.”
