Our thanks go to West Berkshire Council and Get Berkshire Active in creating funds for a test in Calcot in West Reading.
Active Movement is excited to be working with Suffolk County Council across three schools in the county as a precursor to a wider remit.
Active Movement was delighted to be invited by June to introduce the programme at one of her LEYF nurseries near Newbury Park in Essex. The programme began as of November with staff training taking place a few days before.
The borough of Haringey represents a new challenge for active movement with one of the most diverse populations across ethnicity, deprivation and educational ability. So when active movement had the chance to work with Debbie Arrigon from Haringey public health to introduce the concept to a local primary school, it was too good an opportunity to miss.
From January 2016, two schools undertook the first active movement pilot to involve a number of schools in a single town. In partnership with West Berkshire Council and Get Berkshire Active, Park House School (the first national secondary school ever to take part) and The Winchcombe Reception and Primary school were introduced to the active movement for the Spring and Summer term.
This outstanding nursery was voted the 2014 Individual Nursery of the Year and with good reason. Its innovative and highly-focussed management, supported by its dedicated and talented nursery nurses have created an environment for 0-4 year olds that is stimulating, educational and rewarding.
This innovative Worcestershire junior school saw the first introduction of Active Movement to a younger audience. Though the pupils are already very active, the school offered a chance to tailor a programme to apply across its age range of 5 – 11 year olds.
