Every week, we see so many inspiring posts from students, teachers and educational bloggers sharing their incredible work in classrooms and beyond. The Social School Awards are designed to recognise those making waves in teaching and learning, and celebrate their achievements.

Every Friday we will announce the winners for each of our five categories on @TrueEducation_P’s Twitter page. To be in with the chance of becoming one of our winners, use the hashtag #SchoolAwards in your posts!

Teacher of the Week Award

Teacher of the Week

Our Teacher of the Week category will showcase some of the most dedicated and inspiring educators across the social media community.

Whether it’s finding creative ways to inspire students or going out of their way to solve a problem, Teachers of the Week are resourceful, hard-working and generally passionate about teaching.

This week’s winner is…

Mrs Pearce (@PearceMrs), who shared her school’s Retrieval Practice Guide for the staff, which covers successful implementation as well as 20 practical ways to use retrieval practice in lessons. Thanks for sharing a fantastic resource with the edutwitter community!

This week’s runner up is…

Ellen Hardy (@ellen2607), who has been busy preparing ‘mystery books’ for her Year 4 pupils. The wrapped books disguise the cover and instead include a blurb on the front to summarise the story. What a creative idea!
NQT of the week award Social School Awards


Our NQT category aims to recognise the excellent work of those at the initial stage of their teaching career. From going to great lengths to increase their own teaching knowledge, to networking with teachers and finding new and innovative ways to connect with pupils, NQTs of the Week find the perfect balance between learning and teaching.

This week’s winner is…

Miss Goodman (@GoodisonMiss), who sent out ‘Jitter Glitter’ to her new Reception class ahead of their start in September. Such a lovely way to welcome the children.

Caitlin (@UhmitsMissB), who has set up a calm corner in her classroom. This is the perfect way to encourage the pupils to share how they’re feeling, particularly following a difficult period.

EduBlog of the Week Social School Awards

Edublog of the Week

The Edublog of the Week category is designed to bring attention to some of the best educational bloggers that share experiences and expertise with the online teaching community.

From insider tips and tricks to offer unique insight on educational trends, our Edublogs of the Week will be helpful, friendly and fascinating.

This week’s winner is…

That Boy Can Teach (@thatboycanteach), who recently shared a brilliant post about finding your true teacher persona. The perfect read ahead of a new school year!

Class Display of the Week

Our Class Display category aims to recognise the dedication teachers are putting in ahead of the students returning back into the classroom in September. We’re looking to find teachers who have shared lots of creative displays, particularly with powerful messages.

This week’s winner is…

Miss Armstrong (@TeachpalMissA), who shared her fantastic reading display. The books are grouped into different headings along with speech bubbles, making them really accessible for the children.

This week’s runner up is…

Matt Parums (@Mr_P_Teaching), who has created a relaxed classroom environment for his Year 4 pupils ahead of the new school year. It looks wonderful!

Mrs Tickle (@StGerardsWidnes), who has been working hard to get the Nursery classroom ready for September. Your pupils are very lucky!

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…

Broomhill Primary School (@BroomhillPSG), who have recently welcomed their pupils back. The children have settled well into school life and have taken on board their new routines. Well done to all of the wonderful staff for their hard work and dedication in preparation for their return.

This week’s runners up are…

St Margaret of Scotland Primary (@SMOSPrimary), who have been sharing all of the children’s outstanding achievements since returning to school. Congrats to this week’s mental maths and times tables champions – so many superstars!

The Olive School, Bolton (@olive_bolton), who have been busy preparing the classrooms to welcome the pupils back next week. They look fantastic!
