Wyvern Academy maintains ‘outstanding’ achievement in Move Quality Mark reassessment

A Dorset-based school, Wyvern Academy in Weymouth, has achieved ‘outstanding’ in their latest Move Quality Mark reassessment, under flagship disability project The Move Programme from Enham Trust.

The school became a prestigious Move Centre of Excellence in November 2013, after applying the Move Programme 2 years previously to an exceptional standard, starting with a small group of disabled children.

Now, Wyvern Academy supports 14 children and young people across the school, between the ages of 7 & 18, to gain functional, independent mobility for learning and life.

“The Move Programme at Wyvern Academy is outstanding,” wrote the Move Quality Re-assessor during the inspection. “Wyvern Academy continues to be a Centre of Excellence who is encouraged to share their excellent practise with others.

This centre demonstrates a commitment to maintaining the outstanding level achieved for the benefit of those using The Move Programme from Enham Trust.

Maintaining the Move Quality Mark means Wyvern Academy is able to continue implementing the Move Programme, using the ‘Six Steps of Move’, to support disabled children - and the network surrounding them – to gain independence in the cornerstone areas of their lives.

Wyvern Academy’s Head Teacher, Bruce Douglas, remarked:

This is fantastically important element of what our school offers and I am proud and delighted that we have again achieved an outstanding judgement. It is a testament to the dedication and professionalism of all staff involved and especially Sue Marshall, our MOVE Lead Practitioner. MOVE is integrated into our curriculum and uses an enlightened approach to learning which has influenced other practice in the school.’
