Maths on the Move
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.

School: Nonsuch Primary School
Problem: A lack of tailored programmes to suit both the more gifted and underachieving pupils at the school.
Objective: The school wanted to challenge their gifted and talented pupils in a different way while developing a mathematics intervention programme that would support their lower achieving children.
Solution: Maths on the Move helped improve levels of attainment amongst children, giving them an understanding of a wide variety of mathematical techniques and methods (such as fractions, percentages and multiplication tables) and making maths more accessible by delivering it through sport and activity.
The programme also had a positive impact on the children’s state of mind, with all participants reporting that their confidence levels in maths had improved as a result of the programme.
As well as Maths on the Move provision, we offered lunchtime support to increase the number of competitive opportunities for the children and helped increase participation through their out of hours learning provision
