“Fitmedia Fundamental assesses fundamental movement skills and basic motor development for children in Key Stage 1 and 2”.
It comprises six different types of test, including Body Control, Object Control, Flexibility and Locomotor Skills. These identify and assess how the child’s movement and control skills are developing, to ensure that they have mastered the basic physical skills needed as they grow.
Supported by scientific research data, the system can then analyse the results of the test and assess the child’s development progress, by comparing their results to where they should be based on their age and sex. This enables completely objective evaluation of improvement as they grow, year-on-year.
Our qualified trainers come to you and test your children using our system, and we provide feedback and results of the tests with recommendations,
In addition, the system includes some basic fitness tests, such as sit ups and shuttle runs, to measure the child’s health status and fitness levels. This enables the child’s teachers to identify early any causes for concern, such as low fitness levels or weaknesses in any particular area.We recommend testing once a term to get the benefits of gaining trackable overall improvements using our system.
