‘Through their innovative approach, TeachActive allows teachers and leaders to put activity as the driving force behind the learning of Maths and English. We are proud to endorse, proud to champion and we continue to be proud to work with the TeachActive team’

Ali Oliver MBE (CEO Youth Sport Trust).

‘Health is fundamental to children’s development. TeachActive gives children an extra hour or two of physical activity and is a brilliant way to support teachers too. With the scale of the challenge, every bit helps and this is a win-win for learning and health.’

Ben Levinson OBE, Headteacher.

‘I love the fact children are proactively channelling their natural competitiveness into Maths challenges. They are often learning so many Maths concepts without realising they’re doing Maths. It’s fabulous to see so many smiling faces and increase in achievement in the subject.’ Steve Tindall, Headteacher.
