About Challenge

Challenge Sport & Education ensure your children, teachers and parents are proud to be part of your school.

Made by Teachers
Loved by Schools

Our mission is simple. We help schools create, develop and deliver sustainable health and well-being plans within the current financial and non financial restrictions.

Led by former teachers and an ex Headteacher we understand that what works for one school won’t for the next. For that reason everything we do is bespoke allowing you to select the right programme for each of your schools to ensure maximum positive impact.

We offer schools four different programmes so you can choose the most appropriate tools to positively inspire your children and leave a sustainable impact. Schools come to us for the following reasons:

    • To develop (or create) sustainable health and well-being plans within the current school systems
    • Help with the upskilling / training of staff
    • To stand out from other schools
    • To offer a bespoke version of the schools vision
    • To manage their money and resources wisely
    • To positively impact children, staff and parents

Our Programmes

When we say bespoke, we mean bespoke.

The below outlines our four packages and their core offering. All will be made bespoke to suit you and the demands of your school. Regardless if you are looking for a simple solution to a very specific problem you are having or wanted to roll out a whole new programme tailor made for the school we can help.

 

  1. Sports Coaching: Aside from OFSTED outstanding PE delivery, we  boost development plans, increase participation opportunities and develop your staff
  2. SportTeach: Upskill your NQTs, whole school staff and SLT to ensure high quality PE teaching, leadership and ongoing support across the school.
  3. Teacher Wellbeing: Look after your teachers mental and physical well-being with our online programme. Decrease staff turnover, increase staff happiness. Show staff that you care!
  4. Fitter Future: Get your children physically active and more mindful with our online programme designed for the classroom and from home.
