TES School Awards 2016

It is that time of year again where you have a chance to nominate a variety of people you know, and who make a difference to your lives, for the annual TES School Awards. There are a whole host of categorises, but the ones that caught my eye are as follows:

Maths teacher or team of the year

Imaginative maths teaching, examples of innovative work and clear evidence of success is the sum of what we’re looking for with this particular award.

Entries are welcome from school departments or any partner organisations working with them.  The award will recognise both the school and the individual.

* The supporting documentation should contain a case study for at least three students (any school phase) who have progressed and shown real achievement.

Teacher blogger of the year

She or he must be employed as a practising teacher. The submission should include examples of three blogs that demonstrate intelligence, artistry and impact, as well as support for peers and the profession. A commentary of up to 200 words may be submitted to explain why you have chosen this person. People may nominate themselves.
*If you are nominating someone else, please check in advance that they are happy to have their name put forward.

Secondary school of the year

This title will be awarded to a secondary school for its performance in the previous 12 months; however, it is equally applicable to those that have experienced rapid improvement and those that are maintaining continued excellence. The judges want to see more than academic achievement: entries should demonstrate innovation, imagination and efforts to develop children in ways that go beyond the league tables. You should provide evidence to support your application, be it Ofsted reports, parent testimonials, data analysis or anything else you feel would be relevant.

Full information about how to apply, including top tips and information on previous years’ winners, can be found on this page. The closing date for online applications is Sunday 6th March, so you had best get cracking!

Good luck!
