Striver has been created with a sole purpose: To improve primary aged pupils long-term physical and mental wellbeing. We do that by ensuring children of all abilities feel motivated and engaged, and teachers of all experience levels feel confident and in control.
Over 400 PE lessons, supported by six wellbeing units, all housed in a clever website that makes planning and assessment a breeze.
Now more than ever it’s important that we look after children’s physical and mental health. The principle of Striver, is to empower all primary school teachers to deliver high-quality PE lessons across the curriculum. This takes on new importance in light of Covid-19 as it means children do not need to switch between members of staff for different elements of PE. Using Striver, every teacher in the school can provide engaging PE lessons for their bubble and easily submit assessment data using the app.
Striver also includes dedicated wellbeing lessons for each year group. You don’t need any specialist training to deliver impactful wellbeing sessions with Striver, simply follow our step-by-step lesson plans covering topics such as yoga, mindfulness and nutrition. The experience of lock-down and school closures will have been difficult for many children, so if you’re looking for ways to give wellbeing a boost in your school, then Striver can help.

One-touch assessment makes progress tracking quick and easy. Striver includes an app that works off-line so you can access lesson plans and do assessment on the move.
A focus on individual progression encourages a growth mindset.
'Personal Best Activities' at the beginning and end of each unit allow children to see how they've developed.
'Hard Worker Awards' celebrate effort instead of ability.
Our lessons focus on developing the underlying key skills that make up all sports and activities, things like using movement to create space and controlling objects with your hands or feet. Breaking things down into key skills creates more opportunity for children to experience improvement. It also means children will feel confident to try out new activities independently.
Each unit starts with a Personal Best Activity where children set and record their personal best. At the end of the unit the children try and beat their personal best score and Striver shows you exactly how much each child has improved by. The only person the children are competing against is themselves!

Striver contains dedicated wellbeing units that aim to boost self-esteem and build resilience. There are six wellbeing units that children study at increasing levels of depth as they move up through the school. This reinforcement process has been used so that by the time children leave your school, they not only understand these topics, but are able to put what they have learnt into practice in a meaningful way.
Striver's wellbeing units are designed to help schools meet the Government's statutory guidance (2019) on physical health and mental wellbeing.
Introduce strategies to deal with stress and anxiety.
Develop persistence, perseverance and relaxation.
Empower children with the information they need to make responsible, healthy choices.
