Ellie Beagley and her team have been working with Clandon C of E School for a number of years running after school activity clubs. Her team are excellent, always prompt and professional but above all fantastic and fun with the children. I would recommend Ellie and her team to any school looking to run rewarding and fun activity clubs.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for running the Sporty Kidz Club as part of our Lower School Clubs Programme for over 4 years.
You have presented this activity in a professional, friendly manner and you have had an excellent rapport with both the students and their parents. The sessions have been well organised and fun and I believe this has been reflected in the enrolment numbers.
For my part, I have found Ellie to be a very reliable coach and a pleasure to deal with.
Thank you once again for all your efforts, you have been a credit to Sporty Kidz and our school.

Excellent, fun, and developmental skills for life, using sport. An excellent service that provides amazing sports fun for all ages.
Experience in sport needs to be life long and the importance of having good experience from an early age is vital. Ellie and her team at Sporty Kidz offer that.
Not only are all the sessions well planned and tailored to the school's needs, the team also manage the time to help support the development of inspiring coaches and leaders, supporting the professional development of both level 2 and Level 3 sports leaders. All schools should have a constructive sports programme as part of their day and Sporty Kidz support that.

Ellie and the Sporty Kidz team have consistently provided a very high standard of sports coaching since beginning at Green Oak School.
By working closely with our class teachers and supporting adults they have developed excellent behaviour management strategies to ensure maximum inclusion and participation. By providing an exciting and well prepared programme of activities, children are enthused about sport and physical activity and really look forward to their weekly sessions.
The coaches are always well presented and have formed strong relationships with staff and children alike.
- Andrew Friend, Head of PE, Green Oak School
Sporty Kidz consistently deliver high quality and well planned sessions that support the most current curriculum objectives whilst finding fun ways to get children active. The professionalism of the coaching staff is reflected in the innovative activities they design and the use of a range of different coaching strategies to ensure that all ages of pupils are able to develop both multi-skill and individual sporting skills. Children’s engagement and enjoyment of the Sporty Kidz programme is infectious, a testament to the coaches behaviour and class management skills.
The content taught during PPA cover sessions at the school enhanced pupil confidence and competence in a range of different sports. The use of multiple coaching staff in lessons meant that Sporty Kidz are able to differentiate the PE curriculum ensuring that all children are suitably challenged and engaged.
The use of professional coaches for PPA cover has ensured that the quality of PE in school has improved and that children get active while having fun. I would certainly recommend Sporty Kidz to schools looking to enhance their PE programmes.

I first met Ellie when she was running after school clubs that my eldest son attended 8 years ago. He really enjoyed the clubs and subsequently my youngest son also enjoyed his clubs run by Ellie. The programme was varied and they learnt lots of different sports skills.
When we were looking for someone to run the Youth Development programme for Goldsworth Park Rangers FC, Ellie was my first choice, three years in, that has proved to be a wise choice.
She is fantastic with the children in our case these are 6 and Under. She sets up great sessions for the kids and they always have a smile on their face. Her friendly nature has also encouraged the shy ones to get involved.
This programme is the foundation for our club, and it's no accident that we have retained many of the players that were introduced to the club by Ellie, as they move into Under 7 and Under 8 football. She also has helped develop our coaches by mentoring the parents before they take over the teams at Under 7s.
I would recommend Sporty Kidz to all schools and parents.
