25th June saw Halewood C of E nominated in the 2021 TES Awards for national Primary School of the Year. It was great to visit them and meet Head Mr Smith, who talked about the dedication of his staff to their children, and how proud they were to be shortlisted.
The last year has been a challenging one for schools, and Mr Smith spoke passionately about the work he and his team have put into ensuring the kids at his school missed as little education as possible in the circumstances. They are to be commended for the hard work they have put in on behalf of their students.
It is a fantastic achievement for the school to be recognised, although they unfortunately did not win, and the teaching staff, support team, pupils and parents should be congratulated on this recognition. Although the awards were held virtually again this year, I hope that they enjoyed their evening.
