Henry Tyndale School’s Midsummer Mischief for The Move Programme from Enham Trust
Midsummer Mischief for Henry Tyndale School’s with the Move Programme
Pupils, teachers, and staff at the Henry Tyndale School in Farnborough donned their best glad-rags and fancy dress costumes to mark the 10th national Move Day in aid of flagship disability project the Move Programme from Enham Trust.
Incorporated by leading disability charity Enham Trust in July 2015, the Move Programme improves the quality of life for people with disabilities and complex needs, and the people around them, by increasing functional mobility.
Adopted by over 230 schools, adult centres, hospitals, and child development centres across the country, the Move Programme from Enham Trust has so far supported over 4,000 children and adults to gain independence; including the 120 pupils with complex learning and physical disabilities currently studying at Henry Tyndale.
Dressing up, riding accessible bikes, listening to music, and dancing with their peers, the pupils of Henry Tyndale were able to celebrate Move Day by demonstrating the physical skills and progress they’d each developed with the Move Programme from Enham Trust – skills they didn’t have before. “It’s brilliant the amount of improvement she has made,” says pupil Michaela’s Mum about the Move Programme.
It’s unbelievable really. Considering we were told she might not walk until she was 8 years old. If she wasn’t on the Move Programme I don’t think that she would be where she is now.”
Enham Trust currently supports 7,500 disabled and disadvantaged people across the country to live lives of choice, control, and independence; the initiatives of the Move Programme perfectly complimenting this work.
