MOVE - Movement for Learning and Life

What is the Move Programme and how can it support our pupils to gain functional mobility?

The Move Programme is a philosophy, a way of life for disabled children and young people, with complex needs; it provides personalised care and support that they need to gain functional mobility, and increased independence.

Quite simply, the Move Programme is a practice put in place so disabled children and young people with complex needs are supported to gain the physical and communication skills they need in order to:

  • SIT to eat, participate in activities, education and eventual employment;
  • STAND to increase strength, mobility and flexibility;
  • WALK to participate in play or complete tasks, with and without support;
  • TRANSITION from bed to chair or sitting to standing.

In March 2017, Ashgate Croft school achieved our first ever MOVE Quality Mark!

A MOVE facilitator from Enham Trust charity spent the day with our MOVE trainer assessing us on 10 different components. They were very pleased with all of the great work we do in school and awarded us the Quality Mark.
