“This is the best thing to ever happen to the sports department. It has enabled all our teams to get professionally coached without putting a strain on our teaching staff at the school. The results have been fantastic, with several teams making finals. This would not have been possible without the help of Foundation Sports.”
HoD - King Solomon High School
Foundation Sports has worked in partnership with us since autumn of 2000. The coaching sessions have always been extremely successful and highly sort after by the different age groups. The manner in which the company is run is of a high professional standard always very polite, respectful of our wishes and obviously well organised. The coaches have a good relationship with the children, friendly, firm in expecting high standards of behaviour and manners, which we as a school, value. We have always found Foundation Sports to be an organisation we are happy and fortunate to be in association with.
Head Teacher – St Pauls CE Primary School
As an experienced Head teacher who has worked in many schools with providers of football coaching, I am most impressed by the coaching provided by Foundation Sports. The coaches arrive in school in good time to set up the wide range of equipment to be used in the training session. From the time the register is taken to the time the last child leave the school site, the coaches have complete control of the pupils. The children respond positively to the good humoured, positive but strong, behaviour management. This means that as much of the session as possible is spent coaching, with no wasted time. Subsequently, the skill level of the pupils improves noticeably over the weeks of the course. The pupils are motivated and enthusiastic to participate. I have no hesitation in recommending Foundation Sports.

Many thanks for the Special Educational Needs football league event organised by your staff. It was brilliantly organised with lots of fun and enthusiasm. Our group of boys are autistic and have associated communication difficulties. They had a fantastic time and have not stopped talking about the event since! I have been involved in many SEN sports event and this one was one of the best.

Coaching staff are well equipped and provide an appropriate role model for the students with whom they work. They have a positive attitude and work hard to ensure that every session is attended and delivered fully to a high standard.

Sport & Health Manager – Vision Redbridge Culture & Leisure
A collaborative piece of preventative work was undertaken to support the reduction of childhood obesity in Redbridge. Foundation Sports worked with Vision and the healthy weight team to develop a six week programme for primary school age children. The programme developed in to the “Move it” project and was run as a pilot in a primary school in Redbridge with a successful evaluation. Foundation Sports worked professionally and competently with both Vision and the healthy weight team to improve the project with the aim of ensuring it achieves the outcome of reducing childhood obesity in a sustainable manner.

“The coaching programme has been invaluable this year and has allowed us to explore many new avenues of attracting students into sport. It has enabled us to introduce new sports, develop our current teams and encourage unsporting students to explore sporting pathways. This is all contributing to the united goal of healthy lifestyles and sport for all.”
