The BIG MOVES Developmental Movement Intervention Programme has been created to help the growing numbers of children in mainstream school, whose delayed physical development is a very real barrier to listening and concentration, learning success and appropriate behaviour. It is recognised that more than 80% of children have some kind of movement development issues when measured against national milestones, and children are becoming increasingly inactive.’
This programme is targeted towards Foundation stage/Year 1 children who struggle with fundamental movement, fine or gross motor skills, co-ordination and core strength. Big Moves is designed to improve physical development by use of small groups and hands on techniques, to ensure children have access to careful yet individual attention!

Coming to a street near you this May... Beat the Beat the Street is a fun, free walking, scooting and cycling game which gets pupils and their families out and about in the local area, having fun and keeping healthy. The Leicester game starts on 26th May and will run through until 7th July 2021.
Developed by a team of doctors and physical health experts led by Dr William Bird MBE, a GP working on the NHS frontline against COVID-19, Beat the Street is the perfect way to get moving safely after lockdown. Physical activity is proven to boost physical and mental health and immunity, which helps the body resist bacteria and viruses including COVID-19.
