Our Company

Legacy School Sport CIC was incorporated in March 2011 and is a dedicated 'not for profit' Social Enterprise. The ultimate aim of Legacy is to promote Healthy, Active Lifestyles. Our long term development plan focuses on constructing a robust infrastructure which is not reliant on short term funding streams. The need to be competitive will drive us to deliver a high quality, value for money service, promoting sustainability.

The Issue

The 2013/14 Public Health England figures showed that 20% of 4-5 year olds, and 33% of 10-11 year olds were overweight or obese. It was also highlighted that young people were doing much less physical activity than ever before.

The Legacy Sport Solution

We want to remove the barriers to physical activity & start to encourage more young people to make physical activity & healthy eating part of their everyday lives. To help us change the current landscape, we have a dedicated trained team of delivery professionals & volunteers who are empowered to reflect the company values. Our team are our greatest asset & investment to guarantee high standards will help us to enhance the Legacy brand. We recognise the need to create a multi-skilled, adaptable workforce in order to develop a self-sufficient, sustainable model. It is important that we also empower & upskill primary school teachers to help promote sustainability. Our advanced skills instructors will work alongside teachers in lessons to increase their subject knowlegde & confidence in PE. Dedicated Legacy managers & PE consultant Mike Whitfield will quality assure the provision of instructors & coaches and we will work closely with schools to collect data and monitor progress to demonstrate the impact of P.E & Sport funding.

Progress Since Inception

Legacy Sport CIC started trading in September 2011 with a £1000 pot of money, one full time instructor & two part time staff. Our cumulative turnover has recently just passed the £500,000 mark, with everything re-invested into PE, Sport & Health in our local community. Currently we have 16 employees, 4 casual staff and have provided training for 25 young volunteers, along with 22 work experience placements this year.

The Legacy Squad is made up of friendly and knowledgeable professionals, who, with their own unique talents, share a wealth of experience. Because of this, Legacy always has a specialist on hand to address all PE, Health and Sporting needs. Due to the fact that the sporting landscape is constantly changing, our specialists continuously study the latest trends in all aspects of sporting provision and make sure they share good practice.

Legacy has started to evolve very quickly into an enthusiastic team of dedicated people. Below you’ll find a picture of each member and a few details of what they do here and in their spare time.
