KS1 BUPA Start To Move Course Inspires!!!

The West Norwich & Dereham SSP was fortunate enough to become only the 4 place in the country to receive the BUPA Start To Move, KS1 PE Training course.

On Thursday 3 November, at Mattishall Primary School, 12 Schools in the Partnership received only the 4th ever pilot of the new training which looks at the basics of how PE is delivered at KS1.

The course covered a lot of the therory behind how KS1 students learn and the implications for how we deliver to these students, with some practical activity thrown in to put the theory into practice, first with each other and then wthh a class of Y2 Students.

It was a thoroughly succesful day, with some incredible feedback around the course as quoted by delegates below.

“Really valuable.....really good delivery, supportive – It makes so much sense”

“I have a much better understanding to taking PE Lessons and its importance within the curriculum”

“We (in KS1) are desperate to make our PE more exciting and relevant. This approach will definitely help us to do this”

“The day has been inspirational. The ideas and thinking are entirely sensible and founded on the way children learn”

“There have been grumblings at school regarding the dryness and rigidity of our current schemes of work, This resource enables us to use what we already have but in a more exciting, insightful & purposeful way”


Following the success of this course, Partnership Manager, and part of the Youth Sport Trust National Training team, Rob McCombe hopes to spread the course accross Norfolk Schools with between 2-4 courses being planned accross Norfolk in the New year.

If you are interested in receiving further details about the course, there is a BUPA resource attached, or you can contact Rob direct for more information,
