“The Kick Start Academy has provided stimulating and exciting sports clubs for both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. The children have learnt lots of new skills in a variety of sports and have been taught to value the importance of a healthy lifestyle and team work. The Kick Start Academy has been the most reliable coaching club we have used, we have had them back again and again and the children have loved every session!”

Anna Timmins, P.E Coordinator 


“The Kick Start Academy have been delivering PE provision for two years, they offer exceptional value for money, the activities are fun, creative and educational. The coaches are flexible and are very clear about what the children are required to achieve within a lesson, so we see progress which is important for the school and Ofsted. As an added bonus coaches deliver individual child assessment, perfect for school reports.”

Mrs Clements, Head Teacher 


“The Kick Start Academy is an organization I have had the pleasure of working with over the past 2 years to provide fun and safe holiday activities for children across Castle Vale.

Tony Kilday and his staff are professional, reliable and very popular with the children. This is because they take time to know the children and this is reflection in the children’s desire to attend every camp that The Kick Start Academy provide for Castle Vale Extended Services.

On a personal note I have found Tony a joy to work with, he is enthusiastic, flexible and supportive and always goes that extra mile for me and the families we work for. I would not hesitate to recommend The Kick Start Academy to any school or organization.”

Michelle Wilkins, Extended Services Cluster Coordinator


“Dame Elizabeth Cadbury’s students have benefited from being able to take advantage of The Kick Start Academy’s programme. This has also allowed us to meet our ‘Every Child Matters’ outcome of ‘Being Healthy’. We hope to continue our partnership with The Kick Start Academy.”

Lynette Bramble, Enrichment Officer

The coaches are punctual, organised, friendly and extremely flexible in meeting children’s needs ensuring differentiation.

Amy Simpson, Deputy Head,  February 2014

The coaches deliver a variety of session including curriculum games lessons, multi skills extra curricular clubs and lessons supporting the Youth Sport Trust KS1 Participation Award. They also deliver the Sports Leaders UK Young Leaders Award, which has been a great success throughout the partnership. The coaches are always reliable, willing to adapt lessons to meet project and pupil requirements and create an environment where children learn and enjoy PE and Sport.”

Carly Griner, Partnership Development Manager (School Sport Partnership)


“I use The Kick Start Academy coaches at my school to provide the children with specialised PE coaching while providing my teachers with P.P.A time. This has worked very well as not only are the coaches they provide reliable and professional, they take the time to give and receive detailed feedback with class teachers which enables them to keep abreast of each child’s attainment and progress in P.E.”

Steve Hughes, Headteacher


“The Kick Start Academy have really helped us to raise the profile of Sport and PE in our school, so much so that we have been awarded ActiveMark. They work throughout the Primary age range, from Reception to Year 6 and ensure the learning activities are appropriate for each age group. The children have fun while they learn and parents have commented how much The Kick Start Academy have added to our school life. As well as teaching PE the coaches run lunchtime clubs and have played a full part in our school life – just as the rest of the teachers do. The coaches follow our school behavior policy and work in real partnership with us. I’m very happy to recommend them – as are our children.”

Denise Oleman, Headteacher


“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your wonderful contribution to the DREAMS programme,  the experiences you have offered through your activities have been most enriching and beneficial to the children of our zone school communities.   The impact from your overall delivery is measured on so many levels both inside and outside of the school environment  and also in terms of raised confidence levels, raised aspirations, acquisition/improvement of new skills, collaborative working, problem-solving, improved social skills, independency, personal growth …………… the list is endless!!  The fact that you have worked in the Nechells zones schools for so long and/or I have repeatedly commissioned your services in the case  of the holiday programmes,  is a testament to the quality of your provision and the enjoyment our children have experienced and will hopefully continue to experience in the future.
It has been a pleasure working with your company on this programme, I trust the learning styles concept has proved an interesting assessment and future development model for you, providing you with an opportunity to review your existing delivery of activities/practices to meet the different needs of the children you have been supporting.   Thank you (and your staff of course) very much for your commitment, dedication and efforts.”

Carole Johnson (Project Coordinator)
