Why schools work with
Urban Movement Primary

Our sessions improve children’s health and confidence, whilst developing their physical skills and abilities. Our skilled staff will help your children to reach their sport learning objectives, whilst adding more depth to your existing PE offering. We work with the school, bringing contemporary sessions to the children, which they may not have tried before, and are happy to provide analytics to show progress of your pupils.

Reduced outdoor time; compared to previous generations, means that young children are not physically developing as well as they could. We appreciate schools are more time and budget stretched than ever before, and we at Urban Movement Primary are keen to help schools fill the activity gap.

We are keen advocates of fundamental movement, and teach this through all of our sessions, but specifically through the use of our specialised physical literacy project. Physical literacy is the key to being active for life. In partnership with Active Rutland, we conducted fundamental assessments with 790 key stage 1 and EYFS children across Rutland. Approximately half of these children, were identified to need further physical literacy intervention sessions.These sessions taught specific physicality, which when used correctly, developed basic core movement skills. 64% of these children improved significantly, increasing their overall scores by two levels. 

We work with children from pre school to year six, delivering lessons which meet with Dept of Education and Ofsted standards.

 

The criteria of the Government Sports Premium fund is met by all of our services.
