Delivering over 300 hours in Somerset

At Inspired Somerset we are committed to providing a range of ‘Outstanding’ services to Primary Schools within the County.  Our school delivery team are dynamic, enthusiastic and motivated to deliver high quality Physical Education, supporting the fundamental development of children, continual professional development of teaching staff and raising activity levels within the school community.

We are proud to currently deliver 300 hours of P.E. provision within Somerset every week, with our philosophy of More Children, More Active, More Often at the heart of everything we do.  Our belief is that every child should be given the opportunity to fall in love with P.E, supported by a dynamic scheme of work, great role models and a happy, positive environment.

For us, two key things that we need to see in our P.E. lessons our Active children and Smiles on faces!

What sets us apart from other companies in Somerset?

What sets us apart from the rest?

When Ben Kirk and Marcus Holmes founded the business in 2013.  Both professionals carried with them excellent reputations through their previous work for Somerset Activity and Sports Partnership.  Ben, an ‘Outstanding’ teacher as judged by Ofsted in his NQT year and Marcus, with 20 years of experience of working within Education, Sporting Governing bodies and Community Inclusion Projects, knew that it was VITAL that these standards were maintained and improved, constantly striving to be better.

This is time set aside in every teacher’s week for Planning, Preparation and Assessment.

This has been a wonderful opportunity for us to deliver regular lessons into our partner schools, working with children on a weekly basis to ensure that they fall in love with PE, sport and physical activity.

We believe that this can offer the perfect blend of high-quality PE provision with an external company delivering in combination with teachers to ensure the children get 2 hours of enjoyable, active PE lessons during the week.

This is fully supported by our curriculum map and schemes of work, ensuring the children are learning and progressing through various sports and activities, whilst having fun and building other vital skills such as teamwork and communication.

We are currently delivering two workshops through the academic year…
PE & Sports Premium Groups


At Inspired Schools, we realise that the last 2 years has seen physical activity levels drop and also resilience in the children we teach and we want to do something about it! Recently we delivered a full day of ‘Building Resilience’ workshops and given its success we have taken the content and created a 6 week block of work for your children to take part in, consisting of 2 hours per week, delivered during a morning.

The aim of the workshops are to take children out of their comfort zone through a series of individual and team challenges, for children to be comfortable in taking risks, understanding that failure is OK, in fact it can be really positive.

Team Building

During the teambuilding workshops we want children to:

  • Improve their communication skills
  • Understand and have empathy for other children
  • Take on different roles within a team structure
  • Work effectively in different groups
  • Put forward ideas and solutions
  • Accept other’s opinions and thoughts

We will do the above by setting challenges and delivering outdoor sessions from orienteering to activities such as ‘crossing the river’, as well as competitive team games to see how the children respond in different environments.

£30 per hour, £60 per morning = £360 for the 6 week block

Staff CPD

Primary Schools are experts

Working together with class teachers, our staff will deliver high quality P.E from our P.E. Scheme of Work, supporting staff to become confident in P.E delivery within the school day.

  • A chance for school staff to observe, deliver alongside and gain experience in what can be a difficult subject to teach.
  • Feedback has been that seeing different activities and games, ways to organise the children and transition from activities is really useful, even for established school staff.
  • We recognise that Primary Schools are experts in the classroom and we see it as a brilliant opportunity to extend this into a PE environment

PE and School Support


We also provide schools support in the following ways:

  • Sports Leaders project – A bespoke sports leaders project to develop confidence in children, to enable them to support children with activity sessions at break times and lunchtimes.
  • INSET days – PE specific support, either as a twilight session, or a section of an INSET day. This can be bespoke to the schools needs, but some ideas and sessions we have delivered before include:
    • Behaviour management in PE
    • Transitions into activities
    • Managing invasion games
    • Chaos in PE is ok!
  • Schemes of work
    • It is our aim to make our schemes of work available to all partner schools

Healthy Children = Happier Schools

“The school is allocating the primary sport funding effectively by providing all year groups with HIGH QUALITY sports coaching from an external coach.”

“Additional sports funding is having a strong impact on standards. Pupils now enjoy a wider range of sporting opportunities, and are achieving greater success both in school and local competitions.”


Inspired Somerset not only provided our school with high-quality, engaging and fun P.E sessions that our whole school enjoyed engaging with. They also provided some of our children who had low self-esteem and needed a boost to develop their social skills and confidence in P.E. with small group intervention. These sessions were tailored to the groups overarching needs and provided them with an opportunity to develop these skills in a safe, trusted environment with a skilled member of staff who had the ability to bring out the best in them. The children looked forward to these mini sessions and we quickly saw the impact it had on the children’s progress, not only during P.E. sessions but also in the classroom as well. Lately, we have also been having intervention lessons planned by our Inspired Coach which have supported children with gross motor skill difficulties and we have also seen this to be advantageous for those children when in the classroom too!

Hannah Stevens - Assistant Headteacher

Ben is an outstanding coach, and consistently delivered lessons of a high standard to pupils throughout our junior school. He built up a fantastic rapport with all pupils, improving their engagement with PE and sport, and motivating them to achieve to the best of their ability. During an OFSTED inspection in 2014, Ben was observed in a PE lesson, and the quality of his teaching was commented on as a strength within our outstanding school.

We asked Ben to deliver CPD for class teachers to further improve our provision in PE and sport. At the time, there were varied levels of confidence and skill amongst the staff; however, we were inspired by the positive impact Ben’s coaching had on our pupils, and were keen to learn from him. His ability to adapt his approach to match the needs of the individual staff member was impressive, and demonstrated the depth of his expertise and experience. For teachers already confident in PE, Ben was able to excite and motivate by sharing new ideas and approaches. For teachers needing more support, Ben was generous with his time and resources: teachers were involved in observations, team-teaching, planning and ongoing dialogue to develop their confidence and skills in a way that ensured a lasting impact on the quality of teaching, and attitudes towards PE. A significant part of this success was Ben’s approachable and supportive manner, encouraging teachers to ask questions and engage fully with the process. By the end of our CPD with Ben, the team had gained a shared belief in the importance and impact of high-quality PE, and were more confident in their ability to provide this.

My daughter …….
Really enjoyed the holiday camp
She got plenty of exercise and had a lot of fun her favourite was Dodgeball 🙂and she said she wished there was always this camp available when it’s half term or a holiday. So well done to you and your staff.


Ben’s INSET for staff as well-received and gave teachers new ideas and approaches to teaching gymnastics and warm-ups. This input has ensured that the Sports Premium has left a lasting legacy for sports standards at our school.

The after school clubs and holiday sports activities Ben has run have always been well-attended by children of all ages. Children report that they think he is a ‘Brilliant teacher because his lessons are fun and we’re tired by the end’

(Paige & Phoebe, Year 3).

I was delighted to extend Ben’s teaching contract for a further year this year. I would highly recommend him to other schools looking to improve their current sports provision.”
