SPOTLIGHT TO BE SHONE ON YOUR NORTH WEST UNSUNG TEACHING HERO!

UK charity, The Teaching Awards Trust, is encouraging the local community to
nominate school staff in the North West for a prestigious national teaching award,
televised by BBC One’s The One Show.


With the 2023 Awards now open for entry, it’s the perfect time to recognise those
unsung teaching heroes in the North West and surprise them live on TV. Entries will
be judged by a panel including The One Show host, Alex Jones.


The Unsung Hero award spotlights everyday heroes working in establishments
providing full-time education to children aged 3-18. And it’s not just for teachers.


You can nominate any member of staff, including office staff, caretakers, lab
technicians and all support staff. It offers them some of the recognition they deserve
for all their hard work.


Silver winners enjoy a trip to London in July for a celebratory afternoon tea reception,
followed by the annual awards ceremony in November for both Silver and Gold
winners.


As well as attending the ceremony at a London venue, winners get an overnight stay
in a top London hotel, and a trophy to recognise their contribution to a profession
that changes lives.


Last year, Redgate Community Primary School in Liverpool won Gold in the ‘Early
Years Team of the Year’ category for all the hard work of their passionate and ever-
evolving team to improve outcomes for the children.


They put the children at the heart of everything they do and have even shared their
experiences and achievements at the Global Summit in China. Headteacher,
Suzanne Webb said:


“Our team is not content to do what everyone else does in their Early Years
departments. They strive to put the children first and they challenge the boundaries.
They are pioneers in their field.


“Our fantastic team realised early on in their journey that if you keep doing the same
every day, you’ll keep getting the same old thing – they want more than that for our
children and families at Redgate. Our Early Years team is truly the foundation of our
Redgate Family.”

Now the Pearson National Teaching Awards is calling for entries in North West for
this year’s awards.


With so many schools and colleges in the North West, there must be plenty of
unsung teaching heroes out there who deserve a bit of recognition.


If you know a teacher or anyone who works in your local nursery, school or college
that deserves an award then don’t miss this opportunity!


You can nominate on the Teaching Awards website: www.teachingawards.com and
the entry deadline for the 2023 National Teaching Awards is 24th February.


Sir Michael Morpurgo, celebrated author and former Children’s laureate, and
President of the Teaching Awards Trust, said:


People of all ages will always remember that amazing teacher who made such a
difference in their lives, whether that’s igniting a fire for their favourite subject or the
support they’re received outside the classroom. Teachers and school staff will never
know how many lives they have changed, or the impact they have made on so many
children and their families, but our hope is that these awards help show them our
gratitude, how much we owe them, how much we value their dedication.”
