What happens next?
The class team would identify a pupil for the programme, complete a referral form and return to Florin Iakab. The team would then assess and select pupils for the programme. Following a baseline assessment of the pupil, Teachers, Parents/Carers and other professionals would then be consulted and invited to a conversational meeting with the MOVE Team.
‘very impressed with the school’s clear sense of purpose in preparing its students for life after school. ’
‘Pupils' relationships with adults are excellent, and they learn respect and appropriate behaviour from the staff. Pupils are accepting of each other’s varying needs, and show pleasure in each other’s successes.’
