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…

Vice Principal SFL (@SFL2326), who has shared a very useful resource on attendance. The resource provides clarity, challenge, support and acknowledgement at every level. It was the school’s core strategy to improve attendance, raising attendance by over 7%. Thanks for sharing!

This week’s runner up is…

Miss K (@MissKay_MissKay), who recently shared her whole-school reading spine. Each book is followed by explanations as to why it has been chosen and the English pathways explain how the texts are used to inform writing tasks. Well done Miss K!

NQT of the week award Social School Awards

NQT of the Week

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 CLT (@miss_clt), who created a brilliant wellbeing booklet that is centred around self-esteem, transition and friendship. It includes 18 small activities that can be done at the end of the day, for a brain break, or as part of PSHE. Perfect for the new school year!

This week’s runner up is…

Miss Hopley (@HopleyMiss), who has been working hard at the school organising everything ahead of September.

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…

Mr Almond: Nuts About Teaching (@Mr_AlmondED), who recently shared a blog post around the complexities involved in reading comprehension. A must-read for teachers with lots to take away from it.

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 McHugh (@MissEJ_McHugh), for her growth mindset display – how incredible! She hopes to build children’s resilience and promote a safe learning environment where mistakes are welcomed. What an important message to share with the children.

This week’s runner up is…

Emma (@EmmaGaunt5) for her beautiful reading corner. We particularly love the quote ‘reading is a window to the world’ – a great message to inspire our young readers!

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…

Streetthay Primary School (@StreethaySchool), who had their very own funfair this week. The school have been sharing how the children had fun making their own fair tickets and playing games at the funfair stalls.

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

Feversham Primary (@FevershamSchool), who have been getting creative this week in summer club. They’ve been making clay pots and painting them, as well as starting the morning with a warm-up dance.
