SMART PRISM

The Programme

Under the guidance and expertise of Early Years Specialist Helen Battelley, we have developed a physical learning programme based on sound pedagogy and evidence-based research for Reception and KS1. Our SMART PRISM conceptual framework places all Reception and KS1 children at the core of the physical learning process.

This approach aims to raise the physical development and movement levels of children, increase confidence in their abilities and boost social interaction and transferable skills. This further enhances their physical and psychological needs.

Movement skills are at the core of the primary school curriculum. Our Early Years SMART PRISM programme establishes the building blocks that allow children to go on to fully embrace our innovative SMART MOTION programme in Key Stage 2.

What is SMART PRISM?

The programme consists of 8 lesson plans for each year group that will aid learning in:
