Live Talks

  • A Centre of Excellence Journey: Emma Cummerson, MOVE Coordinator and Trainer at Millstead School, will recount her school's MOVE journey and how they have achieved Centre of Excellence status. This will help you to understand what goes into becoming a Centre of Excellence and what the benefits of this status are.
  • Motor Learning & Dynamic Movement: Richard Harvey, National Clinical Training Manager at Jiraffe, will talk through the principles of motor learning and how they are applied in practice. This will be a chance to familiarise yourself with some of the founding components of MOVE.
  • Evidence Gathering Assessment for the MOVE Programme: Simon Wright, MOVE Coordinator at Cherry Garden School, and Simon Kilgour, SEND Advisor/Outreach Teacher, will share how Cherry Garden has been using an online evidence gathering system to assess MOVE student progress. This will be an opportunity for you to think about how evidence gathering could benefit MOVE in your school.
  • MOVE and Classroom Culture: Lisa Parascandolo, MOVE Coordinator at Willowdene School and MOVE Trainer, will discuss the findings of her Masters degree, which looked at the effect of breaking down MOVE milestones and also integrating the MOVE ethos into classroom culture. This will help you to understand the impact that classroom culture has on pupil progress within MOVE.
  • MOVE Groups: why have them? Katie Chapman, MOVE Coordinator at Watergate School, Associate Trainer and MOVE Specialist Consultant, will share her experience of running MOVE Groups, and talk through the benefits of using the sessions to improve the skills of students, families and practitioners.
