Gymrun embeds physical health into the culture of primary schools and into the mind-set of all pupils.
We know that improved physical health will positively impact pupils’ lives, their ability to learn, their resilience and their mental and social well-being. This is why we have designed a fun and inclusive physical health assessment. We understand that assessment creates mixed feelings, but without it, how can we monitor all pupils?
Gymrun supports the revised DFE guidelines for the school sports premium and meets key personal development criteria in the new Ofsted framework.
Pupils complete Five Challenges in one lesson, achieving one of eight stages in our badge system.
The assessment provides personal competition, developing all pupils’ understanding of how to keep physically healthy. The informative data and motivational badges raise the profile of health and well-being across your school.
‘I’m not going to be as good as you at some things and you are not going to be as good as me at some things. And that’s ok. You might not be the best, but you still need to want to achieve everything you can out of the ability you have.
In Gymrun, the graded badge scheme enables you to set personal goals and targets. You have to put in the hard work and the end results will come. This is what makes it engaging. There aren’t many things that do this.’
