Presentation from Sellafield Peer to Peer Programme

Rachel Clark & Tracey Teasdale, from Mayfield School accepting the cheque, said: “On behalf of everyone at Mayfield, I’d like to thank employees who participated in the peer to peer observation programme for their fantastic contribution to local community groups.

Mayfield replies on donations to enhance its outstanding provision for pupils. “This money will provide a new ‘learning station’. Several children will benefit from this as it allows positioning to be maximised for our most complex needs students. Pupils recovering from surgery, with this provision, will be able to return to school earlier. Students who cannot tolerate their wheel chair now have a range of alternative options in terms of positioning and are to access learning in more effective ways.

Thank you all so much and thanks to Prospect for the nomination and continued support.”
