NED is a company interested in nurturing young people on their educational journey. We provide diverse programmes to support schools to improve learning and achievement and also to support school staff with their CPD.

Our in-school services include:

  • Dance and fitness activity including P.E support

  • Alternative Curriculum support

  • Staff CPD support

  • Staff sessions to help combat mental health challenges in a very stressful work environment as part of work-based support towards health and wellbeing

  • Staff fitness and dance sessions

Our programmes such as Dance4ward link in with curricular themes and topics to help to enhance the curriculum and promote engagement in the learning process.

We recognise the valuable contribution that positive engagement makes to the development of skills in young people. The benefits gained are wide and varied, ranging from personal development, enabling, and supporting positive life choices and encouraging ambition to achieve as well as helping them to take responsibility for their actions and develop positive relationships with others.

Our Dare to be… programme helps to highlight social issues affecting young people in society today.

We are very aware that children learn differently and that learning needs to be flexible to accommodate differences.

We believe our packages lend a dynamic element to the learning process and engagement.

We are not prescriptive in what we can offer because our aim is to tailor our service to meet the needs of your pupils and staff.

We look forward to helping you create an exciting and innovative learning environment.

We deliver dance and fitness activities which can be adapted to fit learning frameworks and curriculum areas.

  • Flexible programme delivery.

  • Challenging yet achievable activities.

  • A fun and supportive atmosphere in which to learn.

  • A non-competitive environment where pupil input is valued and recognised.

The benefits from our programmes include:

  • Communication, attention, language and listening skills and decision-making skills improved.

  • Self-awareness and confidence raised.

  • Improved physical health.

  • Creative development nurtured

  • Social skills and positive relationships supported.

  • Unlocking emerging talent in individuals who may not otherwise access dance.

  • CPD sessions for staff

We welcome any opportunity to discuss how we can develop partnership working and very much look forward to being part of improving and raising standards for all our children.
