Physical Education and Development

Physical Education and Development are key areas of the curriculum here at Nancealverne. 

Through our learning environments to our enrichment activities we ensure that all children, regardless of need, have opportunities to enhance their physical development skills. We work closely with therapy services to deliver individual outcomes. 

We use two different Physical Education and Physical Development schemes. Links to their websites are below. 

The MOVE Programme is an activity-based practice that enables disabled young people to gain independent movement. It uses the combined approach of education, therapy and family knowledge to teach the skills of sitting, standing, walking and transitioning between. The aim of the MOVE Programme is to offer these movement opportunities to disabled people, opening up and transforming the world around them and creating an accessible, interesting and educational world full of opportunity and choice.

In early development, children learn about their environment and gain skills to navigate the world by moving, exploring, and practising repeatedly. A disabled child who uses assistive equipment and relies on others for much of their movement is generally provided fewer opportunities to independently move and learn. The MOVE Programme ensures that disabled young people are provided these vital opportunities to develop their mobility and independence.     Move
