Enhancing education through sport

Sport Works Aspire Programme utilises the power of sport and physical education to engage pupils with a history of low academic achievement, poor attendance and negative educational experience back into a positive environment.

What is the rationale?
Increasing research highlights that pupils with emotional and behavioural difficulties respond positively to vocational interactive interventions. Physical activity and sport is regarded as one of the most effective methods by which to engage “hard to reach” pupils and has been successfully utilised to facilitate positive behavioural changes with disengaged pupils.

How is it delivered?
Sport Works Ltd has developed a unique, three phase programme which works to meet National Curriculum directives within Physical Education.  Our team of experienced tutors lead pupils through projects which develop team building, cooperation and leadership skills, culminating in their undertaking of nationally recognised qualifications and awards.  Each programme is designed specifically to meet individual requirements and maximise learning opportunities.

What are the benefits?
Reduced pupil aggression and inappropriate behaviour during school.
Improved understanding within health, fitness and sports performance and improved attainment within associated GCSE subjects.
Enhanced self esteem and skills within leadership, communication and  organisation.
Increased pupil health and fitness.

What do the clients think?
“Our students have dramatically benefited from the programme; not only are they developing sporting proficiency and improving their health, but confidence, behaviour and general social skills have also improved. Attendance has dramatically increased as a direct result of the programme”.
Susan Green, Alternative Education Manager at Jarrow School.
