Henry Tyndale School announced first school in Hampshire to become a Move Centre of Excellence

Henry Tyndale School, based in Farnborough, has been announced the first school in Hampshire to become a Move Centre of Excellence, as part of national flagship disability project the Move Programme from Enham Trust.

The school, which adopted the Programme in 2008, currently supports 26 disabled children in their journey to gaining functional mobility for learning and life; setting realistic, personalised goals and expectations for everyone involved.

The announcement, made during an intimate celebratory assembly for pupils, staff, and close family, recognises the school’s outstanding efforts to execute the complex principles of the Move Programme from Enham Trust; from the initial assessment and goal setting, to teaching of the skills required.

Jenny Thompson, Acting Deputy of Henry Tyndale School, commented after the event:

We at Henry Tyndale are honoured and very excited about being made a 'Centre of Excellence' for the MOVE Programme. It has been an incredible journey from when we piloted the MOVE Programme with just three pupils, to where we are now with over 20 students.

A huge "Thank you" must be given to The Friends of Hampshire who have so generously supported us throughout this process. Working together with the pupil and family at the centre of the whole initiative means that any goals that are being worked on are practised in all settings, giving an increased number of opportunities for the pupils to master a range of tasks.

One of the favourite activities is completing the grid which highlights the steps of progress their child has made. We look forward to introducing even more pupils to the MOVE Programme and continuing to work very closely with The Enham Trust in the future.

Move Programme Co-Ordinator, Suzanne Richardson, also remarked:

Becoming a Move Centre of Excellence is a massive achievement for any school practicing the programme’s principles; showing real commitment and drive to ensuring disabled children develop the skills they need to be as independent as possible

The Move Programme was incorporated by leading disability charity Enham Trust in 2015; complementing the charity’s ongoing work to ensure as many disabled people across the country as possible are supported to gain choice, control, and independence over their daily lives.
