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 continues to raise new challenges for teachers as they work on educating children at home and also taking care of the children of key workers.  We have admired the great work that they’re doing to support students and the wider community, whilst also continuing to support one another on Twitter to share useful tips and resources. We salute you all!

This week’s winner is…

Toria Bono (@Toriaclaire), who has inspired thousands of teachers to find their voice. Thanks to Toria, many teachers have started their own blog to share their teaching journey. Toria is extremely passionate about not only sharing her own ideas, but also learning from others. Toria is the perfect example of using the EduTwitter platform in the most positive way possible. Keep shining Toria!

This week’s runner up is…

Rich Simpson (@richreadalot), who has been encouraging lots of positivity on Twitter this week in #ThoughtfulThursday using the #KindnessRipple. One kind word can change someone’s entire day!

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…

Formby High School (@FormbyHigh), who have been sharing lots of brilliant work on Twitter. In response to this year’s difficult transition for new starters, Formby High have created a transition page on their website with lots of wonderful videos, information and an opportunity to meet the tutors. The school have also been hosting their very own Visual Arts Festival over on their YouTube channel – well done to everyone involved!

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

Halewood CofE School (@halewoodcofe), who shared a brilliant video to showcase the special memories of Year 6 – so creative!

Waterloo Primary School (@WaterlooPS_), for sharing their beautiful classroom message for the pupils – a lovely touch!

Mapplewells Primary and Nursery School  (@MapplewellsPrim), who shared their farewell messages to the Year 6 pupils. I’m sure they’ll cherish their memories at primary school.
