We are passionate about seeing young people move more. The effects of inactivity in children and young adults are frightening and we all have a role to play.
We strongly believe that once teachers understand the true impacts of sedentarism & inactivity on their students they will find a way of creating a more active classrooms and everyone will begin to reap the rewards.
We understand that school and teachers are facing one of their most challenging times as budgets decline an expectations rise. So, not only do we offer services which support schools, but, as a social enterprise, we offer them at a fraction of the cost businesses pay for them.
Specifically we offer
- ‘Why Movement Matters’ presentations to teachers covering the science of movement and sedentary behaviour as it applies to children as well as some practical ideas that we have seen work elsewhere.
- Consultancy sessions with school leaders and teachers to facilitate environmental & cultural changes within their schools and classrooms
- Move Well Workshops & Classes for teachers – these sessions give teachers the opportunity for a deeper dive into the cultural adaptations our bodies have suffered, how to regain natural movements and key movements that they themselves can incorporate for their own wellbeing.
We are also developing online resources for schools so that you don’t miss out if you are not within the areas we serve in person!
Our blog on Sedentary Schools – Why It Matters gives you some further information why this work matters so much to us and we would love you to watch the video below from the Youth Sports Trust which we think does an excellent job of conveying the Move More message.
