The Active Movement System for Secondary Schools

Secondary schools are the most challenging of environments for Active Movement. Pupils are more self-aware about their physical capabilities; more self-determining about change or advice; and will be naturally more sedentary and more computer-friendly.

The learning environment will also be much more regimented with much less opportunity for movement during lessons (though often between them). Teachers are also under pressure to fulfil the demands of the curriculum so are less keen to change the class environment.

Yet, Active Movement can offer educational opportunities in terms of energy levels, focus, memory, creativity and work rate. The Active Movement System recognises the specific requirements of this environment by limiting its reach (Years 7 – 9), making communication relevant, giving pupils much more responsibility in its implementation and taking time to properly integrate the programme. Evaluation is also more extensive as we look at emotional as well as physical impact.
