School of the week award

School of the Week

Our School of the Week award aims to celebrate those schools finding new and exciting ways to encourage learning.

This could be through a school trip, engaging in a school-wide project, fundraising or pulling off a performance or event. It could even be something as simple as making changes to students’ learning environment to boost motivation and increase productivity.

This week follows schools that are continuing to learn and study from home, whilst a small number of children will continue their studies in school. We have selected some of our favourite posts shared by schools this week, demonstrating their positive and creative approach to pieces of work.

This week’s winner is…

Fairfield Primary (@FairfieldPrimSc), who have recently worked with Primark on a campaign to recognise the school and children’s positivity. Some of the school’s superstar staff and children feature in the global campaign – what a fantastic project to be a part of. You should be so proud of the school community!

This week’s school of the week runners up are…

St Anne’s Catholic Primary School (@StAnnesKnowsley), who have been setting daily challenges for the children during the summer holidays. What a brilliant way to continue engaging with the school community.
