Dynamic Movement

Our Dynamic Movement programme supports students to develop and strengthen their movement abilities.

The programme incorporates aspects of the Perceptial Motor Programme (PMP) and exercises designed by physio-therapists.

Using a combination of floor and equipment exercises, students gain muscle strength and improve co-ordination, gross and fine motor skills, and communication skills in a safe and supported environment.

During the session students practise skills such as listening to instructions, taking turns, and leading the activities.

Small group numbers enable students to fully participate in activities.

Dynamic Movement runs twice a week from the school hall.
