Winter Wonderland at Percy Hedley School

The MOVE programme has recently been implemented at Percy Hedley School and MOVing in a Winter Wonderland is our first Christmas themed event which encompasses the principles of MOVE.

This magical experience has enabled students of all abilities to develop and generalise their social, communication and physical skills – whilst having LOTS OF FESTIVE FUN!

Staff and students across the school have had a great time participating in this event and were also involved with making some of the decorations and activities in the lead up to the Winter Wonderland during their MOVE to Learn sessions.

A huge thank you to our Percy Hedley School MOVE team, with specific thanks to Sophie, Mary, Tina and Nicola who have been the driving force behind this years event.

Another huge thanks also goes to the PTA who funded the majority of resources to create the event.

Check out some videos and images from the festive event below.




Christmas Jumper Day!

On the 3rd December we celebrated Christmas Jumper Day, which was also the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, something we will always celebrate at Percy Hedley!

And what better way to celebrate than wearing your favourite Christmas jumper?! and celebrate we did! Just check out the amazing jumpers we saw in and around the foundation!

It’s not too late to donate.

We are suggesting a small minimum donation of £2 to help us continue delivering our amazing work, but if you can afford more, please feel free to donate a larger amount, we are very grateful for all the donations we receive.

These are challenging times for us all and as we adapt to these unprecedented circumstances, we are so very grateful to you for your continued support.

Sadly, like so many charities, most of our planned fundraising events have been cancelled this year but we are so grateful to our wonderful supporters who continue to come up with creative and engaging ways to support us.

This year, we are asking our supporters to send ecards instead of greetings cards and donate the money saved in doing so.

We have partnered with Don’t Send Me A so you can send festive ecards to your family, friends and colleagues whilst donating the equivalent cost of Christmas cards and/or postage to Percy Hedley and helping us continue to provide the best support for the disabled people in our schools, college and care homes.

2020 certainly hasn’t turned out the way any of us expected.  What hasn’t changed is our commitment to providing care, education and support for disabled children, young people and adults throughout the pandemic.

Thanks for your continued support, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas!
