The MOVE philosophy
Is that movement is the foundation for learning.
The aim of the MOVE is to offer movement opportunities to the child/young person, therefore opening up and transforming the world around them which will create an educational environment full of opportunities and choice.
MOVE in practice
The MOVE programme gives children a variety of different opportunities to learn valuable skills that enable them to reach their own personal goals and develop fundamental skills. Goals are set by the child/young person with input from family and the educational setting
