Developed by teachers for teachers, Maths on the Move (MOTM) is a unique and innovative programme aligned with the national curriculum. Using physically active learning, MOTM enhances children’s confidence and attainment in maths.

Suitable for all abilities, the programme can be tailored to suit pupils’ individual requirements.

Use MOTM as an intervention programme to support lower achieving children or extend the learning of those who are gifted and talented. The results show that, whatever the pupil’s pre programme confidence level, it is boosted post programme. 

MOTM is a sustainable and effective use of the PE and Sport Premium. By embedding physical activity into the school day, the programme raises the profile of PE and sport across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement.

Experienced educators deliver MOTM and learning materials are provided. An online portal and regular pupil reports enable progress to be continually tracked and monitored, essential for justifying premium spend to Ofsted
