Time to en­ter your schools, pupils and teach­ers in our awards –

IF a tremen­dous teacher has turned your child’s life around, or your school re­ally couldn’t func­tion with­out its ded­i­cated sup­port staff, now is the time to give them the recog­ni­tion they de­serve.

Now in its tenth year, The Evening Tele­graph Ed­u­ca­tion Awards is your chance to put those most de­serv­ing in the spot­light.

As well as pay­ing trib­ute to the ded­i­cated staff in­volved in ed­u­ca­tion across the city and sur­round­ing area, you can nom­i­nate pupils who have ex­celled them­selves or ex­ceeded ex­pec­ta­tions in the arts and de­sign and technology.

We want to hear about any­one, be it teach­ers, care­tak­ers or clean­ers, who go the ex­tra mile or de­serve some praise. Usu­ally the mod­est amongst us, they are of­ten those who give the most, yet ask for noth­ing in re­turn.

These awards are a real op­por­tu­nity to cel­e­brate both ex­cel­lence and ef­fort, and have a huge im­pact.

Proud dad Andy Ben­ning saw his daugh­ter Ella col­lect a highly com­mended prize in the arts award cat­e­gory at last year’s cer­e­mony.

He said: “We were so very proud of her, as was Ella. It re­ally helped her con­fi­dence.”

A pupil at Or­mis­ton Bush­field Academy, Ella has since gone on to join the Na­tional Youth The­atre and has a show and sev­eral au­di­tions lined up for the sum­mer. Hav­ing seen his daugh­ter re­ceive an award no­ma­tion last year, Andy is keen to en­cour­age ET read­ers to get nom­i­nat­ing this year.

He said: “Some peo­ple just work away qui­etly in the corner and some­times they just need other peo­ple to take no­tice of them and of­fer en­cour­age­ment.

“It has made a big dif­fer­ence to Ella, it is so worth­while.”

The glit­ter­ing awards cer­e­mony will take place at the Key The­atre, Peter­bor­ough on Wed­nes­day, July 14. As well as the pres­ti­gious ti­tle, the win­ner of each cat­e­gory will take home £250 for their school.

ET edi­tor Mark Ed­wards said: “Schools are busy places, and it can be hard to find the time to re­ally praise and en­cour­age those who de­serve it most, and that’s where our awards come in.It is fan­tas­tic to be able to cel­e­brate the work and ac­com­plish­ments of all mem­bers of a school com­mu­nity.

“What is par­tic­u­larly great about the awards is that ev­ery en­try is judged on merit, so it doesn’t mat­ter how big or small a school is, they all have the same chance to take home a prize on the night.”
