Little Sports Coaching works with over 10,000 young people every week...

What are the benefits of working with LSC coaches?

LSC Staff support children in their development of social skills, confidence, improved behaviour, developing relationships, inclusion and team building, as well as the obvious physical benefits which are associated to regular exercise.

 

Who are the LSC staff delivering to my children?

We have a dedicated coaching and mentoring staff who are qualified to a minimum of NGB Level 2 in at least one sport. All LSC Staff hold an up to date DBS, Emergency First Aid and Safeguarding Children certificate. Staff will provide the schools with their own set of National Curriculum PE & Sports lesson plans, as well as providing regular pupil assessments which can be used for any Ofsted Inspections and requested to be seen by parents. On a half termly basis, all of our staff are observed by our Quality Assurance Team and feedback is provided to the individual school.

 

Who do we work with?

We are proud to work a range of nurseries, primary and secondary schools in the North-West. In addition, we have a proven track record of working alongside Special Schools and OutReach UK, an organisation which delivers a focused mentoring programme.

 

Childhood Obesity within the UK

The World Health Organization (WHO) regards childhood obesity as one of the most serious global public health challenges for the 21st century. Obese children and adolescents are at an increased risk of developing various health problems, and are also more likely to become obese adults.

The National Child Measurement Programme (NCMP) measures the height and weight of around one million school children in England every year, providing a detailed picture of the prevalence of child obesity. The latest figures, for 2015/16, show that 19.8% of children in Year 6 (aged 10-11) were obese and a further 14.3% were overweight. Of children in Reception (aged 4-5), 9.3% were obese and another 12.8% were overweight. This means a third of 10-11 year olds and over a fifth of 4-5 year olds were overweight or obese.

Data are also available from the Health Survery for England (HSE), which includes a smaller sample of children than the NCMP but covers a wider age range. Results from 2015 show that 28.2% of children aged 2 to 15 were classed as either overweight or obese.

Can anyone join in with LSC sessions?

Yes. The LSC coaches deliver programmes which are tailor made to support the development of the individual child and are fully inclusive, from the ages of 18 months upwards. Pupils are challenged at a level relevant to their ability in order that they continue to progress and develop in a structured and appropriate way. Full session plans are provided to the nursery or school for each lesson we deliver.
