MOVE Programme

What is MOVE

The programme itself is run by Enham Trust and is a practical mobility programme based around the philosophy that movement is the foundation for learning. The MOVE programme uses the combined knowledge of the family, carers, education and therapy. It is designed to teach anyone who has not learnt to sit, stand, walk or transfer by the age they would expect to, or those who have lost these skills, to increase their independent mobility to the best of their ability.


Cherry Garden has been judged to deliver the programme to a high standard and we achieved Quality Mark status in 2018. You can read our Quality Mark report below!

Embracing the principles of MOVE

Cherry Garden has embraced MOVE and introduced the principles of the programme throughout the school. We currently have a number of children on the programme with clear individualised goals, the goals are integrated into the curriculum with regular opportunities to practice skills and increase mobility.

Social inclusion

The programme has the potential to impact on every aspect of life not only for the individual, their family and care teams but for society as a whole. As our children and young people develop their mobility skills they can begin to take a more active role in their life.

Enhancing education

MOVE has been successfully implemented within the school, complementing and improving our approach to education and learning. The MOVE programme enhances the curriculum and enables children and young people to access learning more effectively. Children and young people appear more confident, motivated and engaged.
