Super Movers can also be used at home with a range of fun videos and games designed to get children and grown-ups moving together in their living rooms, so parents as well as teachers can join in.

Why is physical activity important to learning?

Physical activity is associated with enhanced academic achievement and cognitive functioning. Just a few minutes of physical activity can enhance a child’s engagement with learning – it contributes to improved concentration, behaviour and self-esteem.

Super Movers will help schools achieve government guidelines of a recommended 30 minutes of daily physical activity.

How can schools get involved?

Teachers can register and download content from www.bbc.co.uk/supermovers

Being active doesn't stop at the school gates. Parents can join in by using some of the video content with their children at home.

How does Super Movers fit with Premier League Primary Stars?

Super Movers complements the Premier League Primary Stars programme to inspire and motivate pupils.  Premier League and professional football clubs will use Super Movers content as part of their in-school support.
