Class Teacher/ PE Lead in school

Used imoves for 7–12 months

Jan 2021

Imoves has proved to be a fantastic resource for our school. The staff and our children now have access to hundreds of video clips that cater for physical and mental wellbeing of children all at the click of a button. The home learning resource page has allowed our children to access imoves at home during lockdown. A feature that has been used regularly by many of our children.

Stephen Banner found imoves:
  • Significantly improves behaviour or wellbeing
    The children have the opportunity to develop self regulation while taking part in the mindfulness activities. The exercise activities allow the children to burn off energy and focus more on their learning.
  • Significantly improves teacher knowledge and skills
    Dance activities give teachers structured content to follow.
  • Slightly reduces teacher workload
    Teachers have not as yet considered how imoves impacts on workload

    By allowing the children to become more active, a noticeable improvement of efficiency has been noticed in lessons.

I have used imoves in my teaching and when working with trainee teachers, for many years. I believe this resource stands out from other platforms due to the range of resources and the quality of teaching materials.

Sarah Williams found imoves:
  • Significantly improves behaviour or wellbeing
    Imoves provides valuable support for trainee teachers during the early stages of their training. The resources goes beyond providing subject knowledge and provide trainees with prompts and support related to teaching and learning
  • Significantly improves teacher knowledge and skills
    Imoves is simple to follow and provides support through modelling and lesson plans. These resources help identify misconceptions and prepares teachers for tasks that may need adapting or support
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    Imoves provides resources that link to the curriculum and are appropriate to different year groups and abilities. This helps to speed up lesson planning without completely removing the teacher from the planning process
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency and productivity
    One of the key benefits of Imoves is that it gives trainee teachers confidence that what they are seeing in the classroom is appropriate and safe. Being able to see lessons and skills played out on video offers reassurance and support

It just works! The whole package. Dance, active breaks, PE etc. THANK YOU!

Dom found imoves:
  • Moderately improves behaviour or wellbeing
    Children often feared dance (and staff!), not now, moves enables teachers to teach with confidence and therefore children are more engaged and on task. They now love to dance! Behaviour in no longer an issue.
  • Significantly improves teacher knowledge and skills
    Teacher knowledge and more importantly teacher confidence was very low prior to adopting imoves. We now enjoy teaching dance!
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    All resources are provided for each unit. No longer are we looking for appropriate music, YouTube clips etc
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency and productivity
    imoves resources enable teachers to focus on delivery and high quality teaching.

Mr Sly

Deputy Headteacher

Used imoves for 5 years

Apr 2020

Prior to using iMoves the profile of teaching and learning for dance was low. The school used a dated scheme that lacked structure and creativity. There was no guidance as to how to deliver dance lessons and this was often down to teacher interpretation. If you were a knowledgeable dancer then the quality of the lessons were fine. If you weren't knowledgeable then lessons lacked quality. Since using iMoves the quality of teaching and learning is now consistently high. The school had a recent Ofsted where PE was selected as a "deeper dive". The Ofsted Inspector spoke highly of PE and dance recognising the quality.

Mr Sly found imoves:
  • Significantly improves behaviour or wellbeing
    The lessons provide a structure that children thrive on. It caters for all learning styles. For example, there are videos to support teaching and learning that enable to children to visualise and hear what they need to do. It also enables children to create their own dance routines which ensures children take responsibility for their learning and are engaged. iMoves also provide wellbeing sessions that have had a positive impact on children.
  • Significantly improves teacher knowledge and skills
    It provides teachers with knowledge of how to get children moving to music and giving a dance a 'story'. It develops staffs knowledge of how to implement progressions. It also develops teachers knowledge of how to deliver the principles of dance: travelling, turning / rotation, jumping / leaping, balance / stillness, using different levels.
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    Planning is provided for staff to follow. There are visuals (videos) and resources provided for each unit. This has significantly reduced teacher workload.
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency and productivity
    Due to the dance units following a similar organisation (e.g. planning, videos, resources, structure of lessons) this ensures that teachers are considerably more efficient.
