Starry award winners celebrate at SLP

Stanley Learning Partnership recognise educational excellence at their first ever SLP Star Awards

Posted by Alex Diggins | July 25, 2018 | School life

Children from primary schools within Stanley Learning Partnership received recognition last week at the SLP Star Awards - the Partnership's new educational awards initiative.

Children from Nursery, Early Years Foundation Stage and both Key Stages 1 and 2 of the three partner schools - South Stanley Infant & Nursery School, South Stanley Junior School and Greenland Community Primary School - attended a red-carpet event at South Causey Inn where they received their awards and saw the SLP Superstars of the Year be crowned for the first time.

Isabella Collier, six, South Stanley Infant & Nursery School's Above and Beyond winner, said: "Tonight has been amazing, it's like a fairytale.  I can't believe I've won and I'm here."

The SLP Star Awards, supported by Stanley Town Council, were introduced to recognise the hard work, dedication, effort and commitment of children across Stanley Learning Partnership and celebrate their achievements together.

The initiative, which ran in schools since April, saw teaching staff select a winner and two runners up in several categories in line with national curriculum core and foundation subjects.

Local school assemblies were held in early July where winners and runners up were announced, and children received certificates of achievement for their nominations.  The initiative then concluded with the red-carpet event.

Les Timbey, Councillor of Stanley Town Council, said: "I am delighted Stanley Town Council were able to support such an inspiring initiative.  The children of Stanley are so determined and dedicated, it is a fantastic honour that we can create an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate their hard work."

Following its success, Stanley Learning Partnership hope to run the initiative again in 2019.
