Abbey Hill Academy is a MOVE centre

20 members of the dedicated Abbey Hill staff team are now ‘Senior MOVE Practitioners’.

The Move Programme is about increasing functional mobility and independence through personalised care and support, positively enhancing the lives of young people with complex needs.

With the support of everyone involved – from teachers and therapists, to family and friends, the Move Programme brings everyone’s expertise together, enabling our young people to achieve their goals; not only improving their physical and communication skills, but also their independence, social skills, and overall quality of life.

The Move Programme is a philosophy, a way of life; providing the personalised care and support our students need to gain functional mobility, and increased independence.

The MOVE Programme focuses on what the child can already do, not what they cannot do. It is a positive approach and goals are set that are realistic, achievable and functional. The aim of MOVE is that children are given opportunities to learn and practice new skills on a daily basis, that will help develop independence, family life, social skills and well-being. Every achievement is recognised and celebrated.
