Sherborne development movement (SDM) has two basic objectives.

The first being Awareness of Self ; this helps the children & young people to learn to understand what is happening to their bodies and how they feel about the experience.  It also helps children & young people to build their self-esteem and self-confidence both physically and emotionally.  It encourages children & young people to learn about working in their personal space and general space.

The second objective is Awareness of Others.  This will help children & young people to learn to move and interact with others while at the same time building up trust when developing relationships.  In also helps children & young people to develop creativity and the skills of having different movement experiences.
