The ABCs of Physical Education for Key Stage 1.

Primary School Teacher, Staffordshire:

After seeing the impact on the children, it became clear the ‘Start to Move’ ethos will change children’s lives.

Primary teachers are experts at giving children the tools and passion to learn. Start to Move supports primary teachers to become more confident and competent in teaching PE and what is termed 'physical literacy'. Like learning how to read, developing good physical literacy is a progressive lifelong journey. 

This exciting approach to PE provides children aged 4-7 years old with strong movement foundations. It aims to build on children’s successes and inspire them to become the next generation of fit and healthy adults. 

Start to Move provides long-term support which starts with local training. It helps teachers identify their own professional development needs, provides sustained support from local peer mentors and gives participants access to online resources.

Primary School Teacher, London: 

I feel that I have gained more of an understanding about the range of PE skills, and how important it is to start small instead of straight to the big picture. I will defiitely incorporate this model into my teaching.
