Schoolchildren who have benefited from programme's fun, educational videos are being given responsibility to lead others

After energising classrooms across the country for the last 18 months Super Movers will now also empower thousands of schoolchildren to inspire their peers.

Super Movers encourages students to participate in active lessons and increase their daily physical activity through fun, educational videos.

Speaking at an event at Ashmount Primary School, in London, to celebrate the programme established by the Premier League and BBC, Alice Webb, the director of BBC children and learning, said a study had shown its benefits.

"Nearly 80 per cent of children learn better after the exercise they’ve been doing on Super Movers," Webb said.

"And every single child that was involved in the study said their behaviour was better, particularly for boys, after this."

'Taking ownership'

Super Movers is now looking to make year five and six pupils Super Mover Champions and inspire younger children in their schools.

"They really enjoy wearing the bibs and hats and taking ownership of what videos they're going to watch, and how everyone across school can get involved," said Jennifer Mildenhall of the Manchester United Foundation.

"As adults we really buy into Super Movers.

"But if they can buy into it themselves and deliver it themselves, without our help, it will be a really fantastic thing."
