Delivering this pledge

BUPA and the Youth Sport Trust will work in partnership to train and support primary school teachers to give them the skills and confidence to teach physical literacy to 4-7 year olds. Through our Start to Move: Developing Physical Literacy programme, we hope to reach 6,000 teachers from 3,000 schools, with access to 180,000 children by July 2012.

Start to Move consists of a support framework of training, resources and people designed to help primary school teachers provide children with the skills they need to build lifelong participation in sport and physical activity. Free training is taking place in primary schools across the country.

Each primary school attending local training will receive training to support them in developing the Start to Move approach within their school. They will receive peer mentoring from a local network, and be supported within a local community of schools through the Start to Move website. The website hosts a range of resources, materials and guidance to further support and enhance their teaching of KS1 PE, and includes videos that demonstrate the progression of children learning through movement.

Bupa and the Youth Sport Trust are working in partnership to train and support primary school teachers to give them the skills and confidence to teach physical literacy to 4-7 year olds.

Through the Bupa Start to Move: Developing Physical Literacy programme, every year, 1,700 teachers and 1,300 higher education institution (HEI) students, will be trained which will provide children with the foundations for successful participation in PE and sport.

To date, this programme has impacted 305,160 young people since 2012.

Bupa Start to Move consists of a support framework of training, resources and people designed to help primary school teachers provide children with the skills they need to build lifelong participation in sport and physical activity. Free training is taking place in Youth Sport Trust member primary schools across the country.

Following extensive research into global best practice, the Youth Sport Trust, in partnership with Bupa, developed training, web resources and local ‘peer’ mentor support to increase confidence and skill in teaching Key Stage 1 PE. This training supports Key Stage 1 teachers in planning and preparing for the new National Curriculum for PE.

Bupa Start to Move aims to:

•equip teachers with the techniques and confidence to teach core movement skills;
•give children the movement skills, enthusiasm and confidence to begin lifelong participation in physical activity and sport; and
•support learning in PE in ways similar to other subjects i.e. helping children to learn the ABCs of movement.

Bupa Start to Move provides free long term support which starts with local training delivered by experienced national trainers, followed by ongoing support from local educational specialists. Once teachers have completed the training, they are given access to the Bupa Start to Move website, which holds a wealth of resources, including research and training films.

The website hosts a range of resources, materials and guidance to further support and enhance their teaching of Key Stage 1 PE, and includes videos that demonstrate the progression of children learning through movement.
