MOVE Day Award

National MOVE Day

Mayfield School has been awarded 1st place as the winner of the 2015 National MOVE Day competition, organised by the charity, the MOVE Partnership. The award saw our school presented with the MOVE Day Winners Trophy and the prize of a £500 equipment voucher, kindly donated by Jiraffe - sales and distribution arm of Jenx Ltd, manufacturer of postural support products for children. 

Mayfield School fought off  tough competition from schools across the UK to win National MOVE Day with its celebration that saw pupils and staff turn the school into a MOVE mardi gras carnival day bursting with vibrant colours and live musical experiences. The children decorated their gait trainers, wheelchairs and even the playground so everything looked colourful and bright. Activities on the day included a drumming workshops and the day ended with a carnival parade where the children were able to practice their MOVE skills walking around the playground, showing off their hard work and determination. National MOVE Day celebrates the achievements made by children improving their mobility on the MOVE Programme over the last year and recognises the difference that it makes to thousands of young people and and their families.
