How was the STEP Program Pilot Study 2016 carried out?

Pupils undertook controlled assessments (qualitative and quantitative) at 0, 3, 5, 8 and 12 months. All data was independently verified and analysed by psychologists and statisticians from Innovationbubble.

To empirically evidence the impact of STEP, a UK Pilot ran for 12 months

What is the empirical evidence resulting from the STEP Pilot Study?

We are STEP. We are committed to bringing physical literacy into the lives of young children around the globe in order to make better progress and attainment - no matter what their background.

Who is backing the STEP Program in the Education Sector?

Highly respected bastions of academia encourage and support the growth of the STEP.

With your help we will be able to implement STEP’s collaborative Physical Literacy Program into all schools.


“IAPS has worked closely with STEP during the last two years, advising and assisting the development of their Program. We have been deeply impressed with the team’s dedication, willingness to listen and to adapt. STEP is a Program that has the opportunity to provide significant lasting impact on childrens’ physical and emotional well-being, whilst also showing a direct link to academic improvement. IAPS is pleased to now be in a position to endorse STEP.”

The long term aim of STEP is to bring physical literacy into the lives of every child.
