Time 2 Move Framework:
8 Principles for Implementation

The Framework has been designed around the 8 principles that work in schools and colleges to increase physical activity. For primary schools, it also incorporates the five indicators required for Primary PE and Sport Premium

Each principle is supported by the following, to support schools in implementing the principles in their own school, as part of a whole-school approach:

  • an explanation of the principles
  • brief examples
  • local and national best practice case studies
  • links to local and national support or services 

It is important to remember that in order to change behaviours, we need the opportunity, the motivation and the capability to do so. An excellent school that demonstrates and meets the vision and is successful at embedding a whole-school approach to PE, School Sport and Physical Activity, and one that is looking to change behaviours, will be implementing all 8 principles.

Principle in brief: Multi-component interventions adopt a whole school or whole community approach and are likely to include actions relating to: 

  • curricular learning (e.g. teaching about the importance of physical activity through PSHE and maximising opportunities to embed physical activity across the curriculum) and 
  • culture, ethos and environment (e.g. ensuring a supportive school culture and physical environment) and
  •  engagement of the wider community and families 

This could arguably be at the centre of all other principles, as it helps drive the desire to achieve and the goals of all others. It helps ensure all staff, students, governors and parents embrace the aim to embed PE, School Sport and Physical Activity. It offers staff the opportunity to implement all other principles and interventions.

Brief examples: For example whole school events or campaigns, active breaks/lunches, active lessons, community linked clubs, parent and governor engagement, competition, transition clubs.

Primary Schools

Links to Primary PE and Sport Premium: this principle links to an indicator for which primary schools can spend their Primary PE and Sport Premium. Specifically, to raise the profile of PE, School Sport and Physical activity across the whole school and ensuring sustainable improvement.

Principle in brief: Staff with increased confidence and competence to offer high quality experiences of both physical education and physical activity across the school day can contribute towards higher levels of physical activity by children.

It is important to think about this principle in relation to all stages of staff career, from initial training to ongoing and sustainable personal development. This principle provides staff with the capability to carry out high quality curriculum delivery, sport and physical activity interventions that offers progression to all students, regardless of their level or need. It also enables support staff to confidentially support teachers and governors to hold the school to account with the appropriate knowledge. 

Brief examples: teacher structured CPD, conferences, workshops, best practice case studies, technical upskilling, additional trained staff to offer mentoring, healthy workforce initiatives, community links. This principle encourages schools to think about all staff: senior leaders, governors, teachers, leads and support staff.

Primary Schools

Links to Primary PE and Sport Premium: this principle links to an indicator for which primary schools can spend their Primary PE and Sport Premium. Specifically, to increase confidence of school staff by providing appropriate development opportunities and increasing knowledge.

Principle in brief: Ensuring schools are asking students what they need and want can ensure that activities are appropriately tailored and can support participation. In addition, encouraging young people to act as role models can have an aspirational impact and encourage younger age groups to follow a similar path.

The student voice is a powerful tool in the development of a school. It not only gives students the opportunity to have their say but gives them ownership over their own education and lifestyles. It helps keep them motivated, which is key to changing behaviours. 

Primary Schools

Links to Primary PE and Sport Premium: this principle links to most indicators for which primary schools can spend their Primary PE and Sport Premium. For example, to increase participation in competition or to offer a broader range of activities, schools should be talking to their students to find out what it is they want to do. It also supports activities such as training for young leaders to lead on activities within their school.

Principle in brief: This involves both the physical space and the social environment. Students should have good access to open spaces, forests, parks, playgrounds during the school day to encourage physical activity. All classrooms can be multi-purpose to allow for activity and there are clear displays and signage encouraging physical activity.

It can be a challenge for small schools or schools with limited outside space to believe they have active environments. Climbing walls and playground equipment helps, but students can be active within a classroom setting during their Maths lesson as much as while riding a bicycle around a daily mile track. This principle is about the whole school environment, not just the PE department or play area. 

Brief examples: daily mile track, play space and playground design, climbing walls, outdoor gyms, local community spaces, timetables space within the school day for activity breaks, multi-purpose classrooms, displays and signage, parental engagement, appropriate clothing, healthy food. 

Primary Schools

Links to Primary PE and Sport Premium: this principle links to two indicators for which primary schools can spend their Primary PE and Sport Premium. Specifically, to engage more pupils in regular physical activity and to raise the profile of PE and sport as a tool for whole-school improvement.

Principle in brief: A variety of physical activity and sport options can encourage all students, from the less active, to the most active, to participate in something. The Active Lives Survey reveals that once of the biggest driver in increasing physical activity is enjoyment, so a focus on fun, play and games, as well as traditional sports, can encourage and increase participation. 

Schools should be offering all students the opportunity to be active during the school day, this includes those with special educational needs and disabilities, those from different cultures and backgrounds, with English as an additional language and so on. Schools should also have a PE curriculum that is ambitious and gives all learners the knowledge to succeed. Choice and variety helps support this. 

Brief examples: active play, new experiences, competition, school games, girls active, varied clubs, varied times to take part (before, during and after school), inclusive activities, non-competitive, links to local community activity, outdoor learning and satellite clubs.

Primary Schools

Links to Primary PE and Sport Premium: this principle links very clearly to one indicators for which primary schools can use their Primary PE and Sport Premium, which is to offer a broader experience of a range of sports and activities to all students.

Principle in brief: A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all students to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. 

The curriculum should be ambitious for all learners, coherently planned and sequenced. It should be delivered by teachers with a good knowledge of the subject and therefore can provide effective support and can check a student’s understanding appropriately. 

Brief examples: forest schools and outdoor learning, Change4Life, broad and balanced PE lessons, PHSE regarding mental health and wellbeing, food nutrition, leadership, active lessons, appropriate clothing, cross curricular activities, physical literacy, inclusion, parental education and so on. 

Primary Schools

Links to Primary PE and Sport Premium: this principle links to two indicators for which primary schools can spend their Primary PE and Sport Premium.
