Perceptual Motor Programme (PMP)

(Body + Brain = Learning) 
  • PMP is a motor coordination programme for school age children.
  • It is comprised of sequential movement activities across five different stations.
  • PMP uses a range of fitness, balance, eye tracking, locomotion and eye/hand, eye/foot coordination activities. 
  • PMP aims to develop the child’s perception and understandings of himself or herself in relation to his/ her world, through movement/ motor experiences. 
  • It aims to develop perceptions of height and space, pattern and order, laws and limitations that govern the human body. 
  • PMP assists pupils’ Literacy & Numeracy skill development.
  • Above all it aims to give the child confidence to manipulate him/ herself in their world. 
 
PMP is run successfully at West Eyreton School:
  • PMP is held in the school hall from 9.00 – 10.30 am x 2 days per week.
  • Year 1 – 3 classes attend a half hour session x 2 days per week.
  • PMP currently runs for two terms each year..

We require many committed parents to help out with the stations. Please contact the school office regarding PMP times and offers of help.
