PS Sports Coaching have worked in our school setting for a number of years and have been an absolute asset to St Ann’s Heath Junior School! Their professionalism, quality of teaching and the natural rapport that they have with our children has been outstanding. They constantly provide fantastic learning opportunities and their lessons are exciting, engaging and interactive where children are developing their skills through a range of physical activities.
Children throughout our school are familiar with the PS team and their high quality lessons, professional and approachable attitude makes PE and Games lessons something that the children look forward to each week. They are thoroughly organised and are always willing to respond to the individual needs of the school including running lunchtime activities, morning and after school clubs and supporting the school with PTA events and local matches/tournaments. Planet Soccer’s natural enthusiasm to promote high quality sporting opportunities is evident through their passion and drive to engage all children in physical activity. They play a vital role at St Ann’s Heath Junior School and are very much part of our team!

Throughout my 6 years as Headteacher at Holy Family, Paul has proven himself as a tremendous asset to our school and an invaluable member of staff. PE & sport is incredibly popular and we feel very proud to be one of the first 100 schools in England to be awarded the prestigious Platinum School Games Mark. These positive attitudes and achievements are down, in no small part, to the inspirational work Paul does with children from Reception to Year 6.
His class management is exceptional due to the very strong example he sets and the positive relationships he enjoys with staff and children. Paul’s curriculum teaching sessions provide an outstanding learning experience for the children. They are planned thoroughly allowing children to build on prior skills and knowledge, face suitable challenges or extension tasks and consolidate learning. He maintains a very successful cycle of very clear teaching, pacey learning, intervention & support and constant challenge. Children love PE lessons and it frequently tops the charts in the favourite lesson category!
One of Paul’s greatest strengths is his ability to understand and work positively within the school ethos and culture. This means he is seen by everyone as a full member of staff even though he only works 2 days a week at Holy Family. He has acted as a mentor for boys across the school and they respond very positively to his encouragement and praise. He has also worked alongside many of our teaching staff with great success to help them up-skill their PE teaching and led staff training on outstanding PE & sports lessons.
Paul adopts a very positive approach to all tasks he undertakes. He sets himself very high standards and works at a consistently outstanding level. He is reliable, adaptable and his attendance is excellent. We feel very fortunate that our children continue to benefit from his leadership, guidance and direction.

My children have been attending PS Sports Coaching for a few years and absolutely love it. When I ask them if they want to continue with the activity, I always know the answer will be a resounding yes! The coaches are professional, earn respect from the children and always make the activities a whole lot of fun. I know they are always safe at PS Sports Coaching.

As parents we have had such pleasure in sending our two young boys on various camps run by PS Sports Coaching over the years. The coaches are experienced, highly personable and above all liked and respected by the children they teach. Each child comes away with such confidence and an ability to progress through sport and fitness in a fun and safe environment. We cannot recommend the camps and school clubs highly enough for their fresh approach and energetic character-building ability. PS Sports Coaching really is the best in Surrey for a professional all-round sports education provider that is fun and friendly. The coaches are top notch and we are so happy in the knowledge that our boys are in the best hands.
