Bedelsford School was delighted to be awarded with the Centre of Excellence quality mark following an Assessment visit by MOVE Europe. This is the highest level of quality mark and recognises the impact that the programme has had on Bedelsford pupils and families.

Principal Julia James, said “ We would like to thank all of our pupils, families and staff for their enthusiasm towards the programme and are excited for our MOVE journey to develop even further in the coming months.”

The school has been using the MOVE programme for a number of year and was awarded the MOVE Gold Quality Mark last year in recognition of the work the school has done to embed the MOVE programme into the everyday experience of all pupils who need it. The team responsible at Bedelsford were praised by the Award Assessors, “The MOVE team are enthusiastic, highly skilled and provide incredible movement opportunities for their pupils!”

The MOVE Programme is an activity-based practice that enables disabled young people to gain independent movement. It uses the combined approach of education, therapy and family knowledge to teach the skills of sitting, standing, walking and transitioning between.

Class teams and Therapists at Bedelsford School work together to plan regular opportunities for movement and positional changes to both support social and educational opportunities for students and to allow for the health benefits movement allows for.
