ORM SAFEGUARDING AND TEACHING LEAD

Matt qualified as a secondary PE Teacher 20 years ago and has been working in Primary schools as a Primary PE Consultant for the last 10 years.  Matt has a real passion for giving young people a chance to be physically active in a safe and positive environment.   As part of Matt’s current role he helps schools shape their Physical Activity provision and map this against the current Primary PE and Sports funding.  Matt also run lots of school’s sports festivals in his local area.

“I’m excited to take on the role of safeguarding and teaching lead for One Running Movement to help to make this a positive, safe and stress-free experience for children, teachers and parents through my school based experience and strong understanding of safeguarding and teaching from both a sports and schools environment”.

About ORM PE

We have worked with Matt, our teaching lead and PE expert, to develop One Running Movement PE. This is a free ORM education channel that can be used in schools or at home to follow curriculum theme based PE videos with supporting documentation that is downloadable for free each week and fun to do whilst encouraging movement and engagement. 

The programme will cover a 12 week term and is focussed for Key Stage 1 children, ages 3 to 7. Matt has filmed this series himself, in his own home / living room with materials he has in his home to show that this can be done at home during Covid-19 lockdown times. 
We hope you enjoy it and find it useful for your family or in school during these unprecedented times #MoveForLife
