We have been using S4A to provide our wrap around care for two years and are very happy with the service they provide. Matt is very flexible with the sessions offered to parents and this is well received. Sessions are fun with a variety of activities that capture the interest of all ages. Communication is good between us and S4A and equally between S4A and parents. S4A provide a good quality service, both daily and on Inset days, which helps our parents in lots of ways.

S4A have been delivering PE sessions at Padbury since April 2019. Every member of the team I have worked with here, and previously in other schools, are professional, skilled and reliable. They deliver high-quality PE lessons which the children enjoy. Staff have commented on how quickly the S4A staff have been able to identify strengths in pupils and areas needing further development. The S4A team all have a consistent way of working so it does not matter which member of staff you deal with. Staff performance is regularly monitored and reviewed by the S4A team. This means as a headteacher, I know the quality of PE is strong and will remain strong. Communication is excellent and wherever possible, Matt is flexible to meet the needs of the school.

• Wraparound care
S4A provide childcare for those who need it on an hourly booking basis, before and after school.
Breakfast club, known to us as, ‘Sunrisers’ can start from as early as 7:30 am until school commences.
After school club, known as ‘Sunsetters’ can start from the end of the school day and finish at 6:00 pm.
• Early morning sports sessions
At S4A we believe in starting the day right. An early morning sports session is proven to improve focus in class. We provide daily or weekly morning club sessions that get children active.
• P.E provision
Our specialist sports teachers provide children with the opportunity to learn new skills and develop existing ones.
Lesson plans are derived from our extensive knowledge base with our 10 years of coaching experience, which teachers have access to, so they can stay in touch with what is being taught in lessons. There is also opportunity for us to provide training days to teachers, to up skill them in the delivery of PE.
• Lunch time activities
To encourage those less able to have access to a sport club in a safe, free environment to learn new skills and have a positive impact on the “eat well, move more, live longer” through change4life.
• After School Clubs
We provide an hour of sporting activity through a mixture of different sports, enabling children to develop and enhance a specific set of skills through a particular sport.
