WHO WE ARE
Our company can claim expertise in education, sports instruction, the pastoral development of children and child welfare. Why? Because Happy Hedgehog is a company run by qualified teachers who have vast experience of working with and coaching children. We have a holistic child centred approach to our coaching with an emphasis on enjoyment.
Operating successfully since 2011, we believe that we are different than your average sports instruction company. The Directors of Happy Hedgehog Sports Ltd. are primary school teachers, still working in the profession. This means that our Directors understand children and the needs and requirements of schools. Our Directors have worked with primary age-range children for over a decade. One of our directors is an experienced school leader, with the other being a Physical Education specialist.
Our Directors' experience and knowledge of quality provision filters down throughout our organisation. We are able to train our coaches to the highest standards of care and practice.
WHAT WE DO
Out of term time, Happy Hedgehog Sports runs two kinds of camp: Multi-Sports and Dance. We have two bases of operation that are open to all local children. During the term-time, we are able to operate co-curricular clubs in a range of sports and dance. We also provide cover for teachers and the teaching of curriculum Physical Education.
We can deliver training to staff and units of education relating to health and fitness. We also have a range of assemblies relating to physical well-being.
WHY WE DO IT
As trained teachers watching the provision of sports instruction companies in schools, we believed we could deliver better. Passionate about childcare after years of teaching experience, we didn't just think we could do it better, we believed that children deserved better. We have made it our mission to create sports instruction unrivalled in its quality and care. Creating enjoyment and progress in children is a privilege and we recruit the highest standard of coaches to ensure that we fulfil our mission.
We are extremely proud of the quality of our coaches. Dedicated to quality, it is they that are our companies greatest strength. They are selected for their ability with children, their ability to coach and instruct, and their strong educational background.
We look for those that children can engage with and respect. They are enthusiastic and personable individuals with integrity and dedication to quality.
All of our coaches have relevant coaching qualifications and are DBS checked.
