Inspire students, teachers and parents with a BRAND NEW exciting and dynamic online learning programme bringing the Urban Strides passion and positivity direct to your home. Helping your entire school community stay physically active, resilient, mentally healthy and emotionally uplifted.
“The most impactful part of Andy's message is his unique use of language and movement reframing techniques alongside the inspirational stories of how these techniques have changed real students’ lives. His work is the physical embodiment of much of my research and reminds teachers of the importance between physiology and language to enhance the mood and a positive mind set in students so they’re better prepared to take on life’s challenges.
Andy brings a huge amount of joy into the room and is a great example to Head teachers everywhere that authenticity and passion in the class room engenders a deeper more real connection with students. Andy’s work on resilience is important for everyone to hear in all walks of life not just schools. I would highly recommend Andy’s work if you want a high impact, fun and energising training where you experience an excellent example of how to get students and teachers into their peak state for learning and how language and movement can have a significant effect on raising the level of people’s resilience”

These are unprecedented times and in times of crisis we need to help each other and stick together, we want as many families to stay active and mentally healthy as possible which is why we’re proud to offer Resilient Movers 'at cost'.
After talking to several headteachers we also know that any kind of budget spending at this time can be difficult and we want to offer this to as many families as possible so they can have something positive and interactive to do whilst learning a new skill from home which is why we have two simple options that give you and your school as much flexibility as possible.
Option 1 - Suggested donation of £1 per week for each household (access to the entire family so additional siblings are in effect free).
Option 2 - School fully funds or part-funds each household.
We’ll also make sure students and families on Pupil Premium can access the programme for free. Schools that are open and teaching key workers can also use one device to teach many, further reducing the cost. The minimum number for the programme is 100 paid devices or households, smaller schools can join together to make up the 100 if required.
“We were slightly apprehensive to start due to the fact previous training hadn’t been so beneficial. However Resilience Reaps Rewards has had an immediate positive impact on our students, teachers and parents. At our school we have a lot of privileged children; therefore having the attitude of gratitude scheme is changing them for the better. The students are absolutely loving the “challenge accepted” and “we’ve got this” sayings! Making our students realise they will only grow if they take a positive approach to challenges. The parents have had some heart warming and emotional responses to their children’s personal growth and are so grateful for the positive change. The teachers have even been taking Andy’s teachings home with them as they feel it will make a positive change in their personal lives too. Thank you so much for helping us all, truly life changing!”
