All Moving Matters staff are Primary PE Specialists, working in local schools teaching Physical Education.

Do you have a behaviour management procedure?
Yes we do, at Moving Matters we believe in the importance of mutual respect between children and adults at camp, children are made aware of these expectations at the beginning of the camp day. We focus on positive reinforcement to manage challenging behaviour and we manage children’s behaviour in the same way we would within the school environment. We reserve the right to exclude a child if consistently challenging behaviour is displayed at camp.

During the day we have 4 different activity sessions at each of the Mini Movers, SLD soccer and Play Create Move camps
