The National Move Day theme this year is "Move on Holiday"

Move Day 2017

Join us in the celebration of movement and independence by taking part in National Move Day 2017!

National Move Day is an annual event which aims to celebrate the life-changing work that the Move Programme undertakes to support children with disabilities and complex needs.

National Move Day is a chance for all schools and organisations using the Move Programme to share their experiences and celebrate the great achievements of pupils. Move Day can take place at any point during the summer term; giving each school taking part the opportunity to fit the celebrations into your usual summer timetable.

This year, the theme of National Move Day is “Move on Holiday”, giving you the perfect opportunity to celebrate your achievements in a relaxed and fun setting! 

Request Activity Pack

The winning school will receive a £500 Jiraffe voucher to use on equipment for pupils at your school.


National Move Day is also a great way to raise funds for the Move Programme, and this year we are hoping that every school implementing the Programme will support us.

There are lots of fun and easy ways by which you could fundraise for the Move Programme in your school, like:

  • Hold a sandcastle building competition
  • Invite parents to a holiday picnic for a small donation
  • Come into school in fancy dress - maybe in your favourite sunglasses or Hawaiian shirt!

For schools taking part, please don’t forget to send us your Move Day photos, videos and feedback to be in with a chance of winning the Jiraffe voucher! Also, if your school is on social media, use the hashtag #MoveDay2017 and Tweet us at @MoveProgramme to keep us updated!

All content must be sent to by the end of July 2017 in order to be in with a chance of winning the Jiraffe voucher.

The prize will be awarded to the school or organisation celebrating Move Day in the most innovative of ways.
