Question: How does Move4words impact on National Curriculum levels through KS2 for children aged 7-11?

Answer: There is a significant increase in progress through National Curriculum levels in the year following the end of Move4words.

For children in Years 3 to 5, academic progress measured by National Curriculum levels in reading, writing and maths accelerated throughout the year following the end of the 12 week Move4words intervention, compared to the same children’s progress in previous years.

The effect was large for children who were initially performing below average (d = 1.1), and medium for above average pupils (d = 0.4).

Children’s progress through KS2 tracked for up to four years
