Maths on the Move

Enhancing children’s confidence and attainment in maths.

Maths on the Move is developed by teachers for teachers. It is a unique and innovative programme that uses the concept of physically active learning to enhance children’s confidence and attainment in maths.

The programme covers all learning outcomes of the maths curriculum for KS1 and KS2, is suitable for all abilities and can be tailored to suit the individual requirements of your school

Why Maths on the Move Works

Cognitive performance

Recent academic research proves that physical activity facilitates brain function through an increase in concentration, accuracy and efficiency – all of which are key components for attaining/success in maths.


Environment for learning

Maths on the Move allows your children to view maths in a different way. The confidence gained through understanding maths in a physically active context pays dividends in the classroom.


Engagement and retention

Children are actively involved in each MOTM lesson – increasing the chance of retaining the knowledge gained and boosting engagement through memorable learning experiences.

How schools use Maths on the Move

Maths on the Move offers an alternative learning environment and is used by Primary and Secondary schools in a variety of ways:

  • SATS booster

  • Group interventions

  • Gifted and talented sessions

  • Curriculum enrichment

  • School holiday activities 

Tracking pupil progress 

The impact of Maths on the Move is measured and shared via an online platform and regular reports. This allows your teaching staff to have up to date information on each pupil’s progress ahead of future lessons.

This gives you invaluable data to justify your spend and provide key evidence to Ofsted.

We evaluated the impact of MOTM during
the 2019-20 academic year.
This is what we found.
