We pride ourselves on having a team of experts, many of whom have established teaching careers in either primary schools or secondary PE.
Formerly Cheltenham & North Tewkesbury School Sport Network (SSN), we have over 10 years’ experience supporting schools develop high quality teaching and learning in PE and school sport.
We became a charity in 2018 in order to broaden our reach and help more children lead active lifestyles.
As Move More, we remain within the School Games structure, delivering high quality competitive sporting and leadership opportunities for young people.
We pride ourselves on having a team of experts, many of whom have established teaching careers in either primary schools or secondary PE. We are therefore well placed to provide support, guidance and expertise to the sector. Furthermore, we are dedicated to sharing this expertise with our own staff, specifically through our apprenticeship programme which we established in 2017. This programme provides young people with the opportunity to gain experience in a school setting, providing the perfect foundation for progressing into a range of exiting careers.
The sessions have given us lots of practical activities that we can use to maintain everyone’s participation and engagement, which echoes our philsophy of inclusion at Warden Hill.
The children who went yesterday (to Heidi’s Heroes) said that it was the best experience they have ever had at school and they feel so proud of themselves.
As a charity, we are now able to develop our educational support. Mental health, nutrition, physical activity and family support are all new educational elements which we link to PE and school sport. Our bespoke interventions also broaden the range of support we can provide to schools, programmes include:
Sportsability: For children not currently engaging in PE or school sport. This is a safe space for children to come together and develop their fundamental movement skills in order for them to build confidence and engage in physical activity at school and home.
Maximising your potential: Designed to help stretch children who are talented in PE, creating a challenging environment in which they can learn from one another.
Heidi’s Heroes: Helping children to swim 25m by the end of year 6 when this can’t be achieved through normal curriculum time. This is an intense swimming block to ensure each young person leaves primary school with this life skills.
