About Urban Movement Primary
Urban Movement Primary is a social enterprise. We work across nurseries, schools and communities currently in Melton and Rutland to increase well-being, physical activity and the uptake of sport to encourage healthier lifestyles for all.
We are a team of proactive, professionally trained, motivational sports leaders committed to improving physical development in children. provide our active sessions by working alongside your existing staff and bring focussed and creative sessions to your existing curriculum.
Every child has a different physical marker which we will establish and help them reach; whether it is to balance across a beam without faltering, to ride a bike successfully or to lead their team at dodgeball. We know that if a child has learnt to succeed, at a sport or activity, they will develop as self-confident individuals.
Our sessions build an enjoyment of physical activity by encouraging and developing children at whatever level of confidence they are at. The children enjoy themselves and learn and develop new skills whilst being active.
Alongside our National Governing Body Qualifications we are trained by SAQ® International; a sports training company which trains at fundamental through to performance level.
All of our sessions are underpinned with our belief and training in fundamental movement/physical literacy.
Having set up the company in 2011 Ineke and Kat are passionate that physical literacy and sport is the key to being active for life and every child should have the opportunity to develop and shine.
