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…

Brenzett CEP School (@brenzett1), who came up with a wonderful way to still sing together despite the difficult circumstances. This will brighten up your day!

This week’s runners up are…

Heritage International School (@HIS_Moldova), who have been exploring ways of working outside the classroom. Lots of innovative ideas!

Layton Primary School (@Layton_Primary) who found a creative way to continue their whole school assemblies this week on a Zoom call. A lovely idea!
