We help teachers and schools get children more active, every day

imoves is a dedicated and expert team of individuals who have all come together for one sole purpose – to help teachers and schools get young people across the UK and beyond more active, every day.

Why? It’s well-documented that even with regular PE lessons within school, plus opportunities to run around at break times (and at home), the vast majority of primary school children are simply not getting the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity each and every day.
