Family Information and FOPHS News Friday 17th November 2023

Welcome to Percy Hedley School's Family Liaison Blog!

This week has been a busy one. It is Anti-bullying week, so lots has been done around it.  The week began with Odd Socks on Monday, celebrating inter faith with desserts each day linked to different religious affiliations, culminating with Children in Need today. You will have received a letter with more detail. The excitement around Children in Need celebrations is palpable, although we know some students don’t cope with changes to routine. Just a reminder that on non-uniform days it is always optional. Some of our older students don’t think it cool. Remember, it’s their choice and we respect it. Thanks to those who have sent in donations for Children in Need.
