Sanderson’s Wynd Primary School Announced Winners of National Move Day 2016

Sanderson’s Wynd Primary School, based in Tranent, East Lothian, has been announced winners of the National Move Day Awards 2016.

The day, organised by flagship disability project the Move Programme from Enham Trust, saw pupils and staff in schools across the country don their best fancy dress costumes to celebrate and share the newfound skills they’ve gained as part of the Programme; gaining functional mobility for learning and life.

Announced overall winners of the day, Sanderson’s Wynd Primary School’s Move Day celebrations perfectly encapsulated the spirit of the Move Programme; turning their normal, weekly timetable into a week full of physical activities, messy summer play, and a lot of physical fun.

In recognition of their efforts, the school will be presented with a trophy and a £500.00 gift voucher courtesy of Jenx, manufacturer of postural support products for children.

Suzanne Richardson, Move Programme Co-Ordinator, commented:

We’re really proud of the staff and pupils at Sanderson’s Wynd for embracing our 10th annual national Move Day. The initiative aims to celebrate the wonderful achievements made by children, their parents, and all professionals involved working to improve the mobility and consequent independence of all children participating in the Programme.

Congratulations to everyone involved, and thank you to Jenx for generously donating a gift voucher.

The Move Programme was incorporated by leading disability charity Enham Trust in 2015, and reflects the charity’s overarching mission; to support as many disabled people across the country as possible to gain independence, choice, and control over their daily lives.​
