“The Primary Influence coaches have built strong relationships with the children, allowing them to feel safe and comfortable enough to step out of their comfort zone. The children that attend are extremely passionate about the active sessions and have even encouraged their friends to come along.”

“We have been really impressed with Primary Influence UK. The coaches come with a great enthusiasm and all sessions structured and planned. They bring equipment ready to use and adhere to our COVID Policy on use and cleaning. They have structures in place in terms of registers and dismissal of children at the end of the day and are adaptable to use our school rules providing the children with a message they understand. Both the children and the parents have been very happy with the group.”

Nick Goodacre PE Coordinator, Tockwith Primary School, York
“The quality of coaching, communication, behaviour management and reliability are second to none. It was without hesitation that I recommended Primary Influence UK to other schools in our locality.
“We value our relationship with Primary Influence UK very highly. Gareth and his team have led after school provision, P.E. lessons, sports days, and events. We have previously worked with other coaching agencies, but I would honestly say that Primary Influence UK go above and beyond what we expected.”
Headteacher, Kippax Ash Tree Primary School, Leeds

They have been working with various age groups and have created fun and engaging sessions, which the children and staff have really enjoyed.

“Primary Influence really do strive to offer the best possible service to schools- nothing is too much trouble! They are responsive to the needs of each organisation, providing a personalised approach. They are very reliable and well-organised and their coaching sessions are structured and effective across a range of sports. The coaches are enthusiastic, skilled and well-supported in their roles and therefore the children develop their skills and enjoy high-quality and energetic activities within a fun yet safe environment.”

Headteacher, Dunnington CE Primary School, York

“PIUK have been running our holiday camps for the last few half-term breaks and have been very flexible and accommodating for the needs of our school. Feedback from parents and pupils has been great and they are always keen to sign up to the next club. Gareth and his team are always very supportive and work well with our school PE leader. Thank you PIUK.”

Heather Procter, Business Manager, Kerr Mackie Primary School, Leeds

“The Maths Motivator sessions and Sensory physics session which Primary Influence have been running at our school have been outstanding. The children they take have been able to learn through physical activity and they look forward to the sessions each week. The Primary influence team are really passionate and motivating, getting the best out of the children they work with each week. Teachers have noticed an improvement in the children’s understanding of key instant recall facts and concepts in maths. Our school would highly recommend it to others.”

Kimberly Johnson, Deputy Head, Kippax Ash Tree Primary School, Leeds

“Primary Influence UK have encouraged my daughter to take part in all sports. She loves attending the sessions they provide as they offer a vast range of activities for all ages. She loves how they taught her to play basketball and football with confidence. Fantastic team who deliver amazing service.”

Parent, Kerr Mackie Primary School, Leeds

“Gareth has been a great addition to the team at Barlby Bridge School. He has transformed our PE sessions with his knowledge and expertise. Our children are loving every lesson! Gareth is also providing our children with an active start to the day by joining our breakfast club provision, and is also running extra-curricular clubs at the end of the day.”

Liam Platt, Headteacher, Barlby Bridge School, Selby
“We started working with Gareth in September 2022. At the time PE was an underdeveloped subject within our school. We used his expertise to deliver not just quality first education, but also to help our teachers with the continued professional development in the practice of PE. We also have a holiday camp which runs during the Easter, Summer, and Christmas holidays. These clubs have been so popular and provide our children with an active summer. It has also meant some of our vulnerable children are guaranteed a hot meal and a safe place to be during the holidays. Thank you for everything that you’ve done Gareth. It’s been a pleasure working alongside you and I hope to be working alongside you for many more years.”
