Sarah Haddow tells us more about this aspect of Make a Move’s work.

This term we have delivered three ECC (Engaging Children in the Curriculum) programmes, with children at St Andrews, St Mary’s and High Littleton primary schools.

Our focus has been on doing things for others and building positive relationships with each other.

Through this we have been supporting very young ones to settle into school and build up good listening skills.

With older children we have been exploring:

  • finding ways to cope with stressful situations
  • exploring different ways to deal with friendship groups.”

ECC sessions are for targeted groups of disadvantaged children. Each session uses a combination of creative movement, therapeutic dance and talking therapies. Make a Move practitioners are experts, experienced in responsive practice – meaning every session is specifically tailored to the children who are there, how they are at that moment, and whatever issues they bring.
