Andrew Norton created Energy Kidz in 2009 when he noticed there was a lack of quality wraparound childcare and sports clubs for families and schools to access. As Energy Kidz grew he recognised that to ensure Energy Kidz was always offering the best service he needed to invest in developing and training new and existing staff.
This led to the creation of Reach4Skills who, as well as continuing to train in-house, now offer a wide range of training opportunities, both accredited and workshop based, to external providers.
Andrew also decided to move the sports side of the business to a new company Achieve Sports who, whilst still delivering sports in schools and running holiday sports clubs, also organise and run adult sports leagues.
All three companies are now part of the Curvepoint Group which is solely owned by Andrew to offer the distinct strands of childcare, training and sport.
Andrew is always happy to hear from any customer or client of The CurvePoint Group and can be reach via [email protected]
‘PE and Youth Sport Coaching Bsc Hons graduate from Staffordshire University.

My three years at University was a great help to me to better understand teaching in schools, I have worked in primary schools for many years and am passionate about teaching PE to all ages, over the years I have created my own curriculum for primary school sport that I think best helps children’s development across the ages. Primary sports include football, badminton, tennis however am comfortable in teaching all sports and have several level 1’s and 2’s across a whole range of sports.’

Please see below the list of our current vacancies:
Our Young Achievers football sessions are a fantastic introduction to football for children aged 2-5 years old. Our coaches are highly qualified and have lots of experience in working children of all ages. As well as developing basic football skills, we look to develop children’s fundamental skills including agility, balance and coordination. Our sessions are fun, energetic and use lots of colours. Also our coaches carry out weekly assessments to ensure each child is placed in the correct group for their ability. We also look to help and develop children’s social skills and we hope these skills help children for when they attend nursery and school. Parents are not left out either and we look to involve parents in our sessions (or you can just watch of course!!!) so they can see firsthand the progression their child is making week by week.
