Hedleys Teaching School is part of The Percy Hedley Foundation; an ambitious, entrepreneurial and innovative charitable business working in a person centred way to meet the needs of disabled people and their families. Our mission is quite simply Disability - Achievement – Choice
We applied successfully for National Teaching School status in 2014 with a very clear mandate for providing training, professional development, coaching, observations and support within SEND practice and further research.
From this niche position, we are:
- Continuing to offer support to hundreds of trainees in many disciplines such as Teachers, Therapists, SENCOs, Health Workers, Social Workers, and Learning Assistants etc.
- Offering ongoing professional development for educational staff through research opportunities as well as developmental training identified in reviews, including specialist SEND training development for middle leaders/teachers and SENCOs.
- Providing support for struggling schools identified and those who approach us directly, through the deployment of specialist SEND NLEs, SLEs, and LLEs, with the ongoing identification of additional SLEs throughout our alliance for training and development.
- Closely aligning ourselves with other specialist schools and SEND CPD organisations regionally and nationally. This forms the USP of our position in a developing open market place within the education sector. Ongoing networking with local, regional and national stakeholder groups will underpin our positioning through contributions at policy and practical developments.
