The Teaching Awards is an annual celebration of teaching and learning and we should all be thinking about who we want to recognise and celebrate in these very important national and regional awards. We have so many brilliant learning places and brilliant people here in Leeds and we should be nominating schools, teams, headteachers, teachers, teaching assistants and governors who have achieved something extra-ordinary, gone the extra mile and made a real difference in their community. This year the Awards include three additional categories:
- The Outstanding School Team of the Year;
- 'Film my School' where young people create a short film showcasing their school;
- The Henry Winkler Award for Special Needs.
You can find out more at the website at www.teachingawards.com. Let's hope we will have loads of nominations this year.
