Burbridge School has been delivering the MOVE Program, a movement-based educational program, specifically designed for students from all age groups, with physical disabilities since 2015. Following the initial trial with just four students, we are now proud to say that this curriculum is now being offered to students with physical disabilities across the whole school. We have a MOVE International Trainer on site who coordinates the program across the school and also delivers the required MOVE Basic Provider training to staff ensuring that our program delivery is highly effective and of the highest quality. In addition, we have a consultant MOVE physiotherapist who works closely with the students, MIT and staff to ensure the best possible outcomes for our students.
Just recently, on the 7th and 8th of March, more staff at our school were trained to become MOVE Basic Providers. During the training staff shared student progress and success from classrooms across the school and this was a wonderful testimonial to everyone's hard work at Burbridge School over the years. As educators, we are committed to ensuring that there is an educational purpose behind targeted movements such as standing , sitting in alternatives to a wheelchair and walking to participate in lessons. In a nutshell, our philosophy at Burbridge School is that there is “no better time than now to get our students “MOVING” purposefully with a clear vision of helping our students develop greater independence via improved mobility skills.
