What is MOVE?

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
