Premier Sport, the UK’s leading sports coaching company, has unveiled its innovative sport and physical activity programme - giving more young people the chance to be active and stay active.

After 18 months of development and collaboration with industry leading professionals and educational experts, the INSPIRE programme has been officially launched and backed by giants of UK Sport including rugby legend Lawrence Dallaglio OBE and Swimming icon Duncan Goodhew MBE.

"The INSPIRE programme provides fantastic opportunities to all children, sporty and non-sporty to enjoy physical activity and sport. A key message of the programme is to engage with the disengaged, providing opportunities for children to have a lifelong appreciation of being physically active.

There has been a lot of debate about the Olympic legacy, the Inspire programme is prime example of a sustainable, measurable solution” Duncan Goodhew OBE

The INSPIRE programme consists of 6 strands, starting at foundation (pre-school) age right through to programmes for parents at the school gates.

INSPIRE means not only sporty children will benefit from the excellent provision of over 500+ professionals deployed across the UK, but Premier Sport are set to INSPIRE the non-sporty via Physical Activity and play – giving more people the chance to be active and stay active.

INSPIRE is backed by state of the art technology that measure pupil progress and attainment, based on agreed outcomes with each school. This allows teaching staff to measure progress at the click of a button and they can even allow parents access to that information if they wish.

It also reduces administration for schools, as all Physical activity & Sport planned in the school can be displayed for parents to view, meaning this area of the new sport premium funding announced by the government is also covered.

But it is the programme delivery which is the most inspirational aspect. The 4 pillars of the INSPIRE to Achieve (KEY STAGE 1&2) programme, offer a journey of lifelong learning opportunities and engages all children via the breadth of physical activity and sporting sessions that each activity includes - START Active, STAY Active, SPORT Active and PLAY Active.

“I’ve known Premier Sport for a long time. They are very passionate about getting children playing all sorts of sports which is a very exciting initiative and one that I’m fully committed to putting my name behind” Lawrence Dallaglio OBE

INSPIRE to Achieve allows teachers to agree learning aims & outcomes across all areas of sport and physical activity and ultimately measure progress of every individual for the duration of the programme.
