MOVE stands for; Movement Opportunities Via Education.

 

It is a child centered, team approach to maximize the opportunities for individuals to develop their functional skills.

MOVE supports children and their families in all environments.

MOVE at Peak school provides a cohesive framework where services work together to maximize the individual child’s potential.

Our MOVE team here at Peak school consists of Teachers, Teaching Assistants, Physiotherapists, and lunch time supervisors, we have regular in-service training to maintain our knowledge and skills framework and to ensure that we maintain the standards required of the MOVE Quality Mark.

We are very proud that, in December 2016, Peak School was successfully assessed as reaching the MOVE Quality Mark for the second time (previously in 2013).

Mobility

Setting goals to influence sitting standing and walking ability. To carry out daily tasks and routines in all environments.

 It focuses on goals set by the individual and their families. These may vary from :

  • Sitting independently to help with dressing.movepicture4
  • Standing long enough to have a chair placed behind them, instead of being hoisted.
  • Learning to walk and to play outside

Once a skill is acquired it is just as important to maintain the skill and use it when possible.

E Emotional wellbeing.

A  Accessing the world
