Who’s Best In our Schools?

GET your nominations in NOW for our Best In Schools Awards 2012 before the closing date on Thursday 31st May.

This is your final chance to celebrate the shining stars of education from across the region.

Entries have been flooding in, but it’s not too late to have your say - make your nomination count.

We are looking for those people who make a difference, defy expectations and inspire others in and around your school – and we want you to tell us who they are!

Parents, staff and pupils can honour some of the unsung heroes in their schools by nominating them in one of 13 categories.

Prizes will be awarded not just for teachers, but to all other people that help to make a child’s day at school enjoyable.

Deserving winners will be presented with awards at a glamorous awards night this summer.

And as your local newspaper, the Standard understands all the hard work that happens in schools around Gainsborough.

We want to celebrate success and give recognition to those that deserve it.

Instead of using exam results and league tables to measure schools’ achievements, we will be focusing on the human side of schooling – the people and activities that change lives or put smiles on pupils’, parents’ and colleagues’ faces.

The full list of categories are:

• Star pupil

• Improved student

• Best nursery

• Best school

• Best administrator

• Best lunch person

• Best crossing patrol

• Best sports team

• Morning and after school club

• Best headteacher

• Best green school

• Best teaching assistant

• Best teacher

With a host of prizes across the board, all you have to do is let us know who you think deserves some recognition.

Is there a teacher that has made learning fun or a staff member that makes your child feel happy and secure at school?

Has your school got an outstanding sports team or a star pupil, then let us know?

Maybe you think your school is just the best, then we want to hear from you, so get in touch.

• To nominate simply send us an email to [email protected] or give us a call on 01427 615323.

Let us know who you would like to nominate, in what category and why they deserve the award.
