Primary schools invited to join virtual Celebration of Education week

Posted onPosted on 20th May

A week-long virtual event has been organised by a Nottinghamshire primary multi-academy trust, inviting schools to join in a celebration of the work of those within the education sector and school communities.

The ‘Celebration of Education’ event, taking place from 14th- 18th June, is organised by the Flying High Partnership and has sessions for pupils and parents as well as an array of development workshops for all staff who support schools – from site managers to teaching staff.

The event features participation by children’s authors including Michael Rosen, Lisa Thompson and Katherine Rundell, as well as inspirational speakers for parents and staff, including Steve Radcliffe, who will provide an introduction to his book, ‘Future- Engage-Deliver’.

Paul Goodman, deputy CEO of the partnership, said: “The week-long Celebration of Education represents an incredible opportunity for schools far and wide to engage staff in the highest quality CPL (continuous professional learning) and provide inspiring opportunities for their children and parents. Over the last 18 months, all parts of school communities have stepped up and given so much to ensure our children haven’t missed out. This event is an opportunity to give back and to celebrate those working in education and everything they have achieved.”

Elaine Fearn, training and development coordinator, said schools can to join the event via their website, adding: “We are seeing lots of schools signing up for the event now and there is a joyful anticipation of the week’s programme.  This event will be inclusive for all, with sessions for children, parents and all school staff, -bringing the school community together to celebrate all that they have achieved over this past year. We have some truly amazing and inspirational speakers, and this is, of course, a ‘celebration’ so we will have a grand finale to round off the week.”

Fellow organiser Victoria Jones, training and development manager, said: “What better way to bring everyone in education together than have a week-long event with a focus for each group of the school community. A particular advantage is that this event is accessible to all, including small rural schools who don’t have the capacity, or often the funds, to attend such events.”

The cost of the event to schools is £55 for the week.
