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!

A group of individuals from the trust are sending fun and creative tasks to pupils with positive underlying messages, to support the wellbeing of the children and their families. It’s great to see you’re taking such an initiative to engage with the school community.

In an increasingly global world, it’s more essential that ever that young people are equipped to tackle the global issues facing us today, including climate change, poverty and inequality.

The Global Class of the Week award aims to recognise those engaging in valuable conversation around international issues within the classroom.

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…

St Peter’s C of E Primary School (@stpetersfarn), who have been finding creative ways to engage with their pupils whilst the school remains closed. This week Professor Brain (aka Mrs Ward) is back with a brand new phonics lesson focusing on the ‘ur’ sound. We applaud all of the incredible staff involved!

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

Formby High School (@FormbyHigh), who published a Digital Artwork video to showcase the fantastic artwork of their GCSE students who’re in lockdown as part of their remote classroom programme.

Cheadle Hulme School (@CheadleHulmeSch), who as part of their #OneCHSChallenge, are supporting The Wellspring charity. Students, staff and parents have shown a great initiative to contribute such a kind gesture during this challenging period.
