The first ever School Awards took place at The City Rooms, in Leicester last night to recognise those who go above and beyond their duties to support young people.
BBC Radio Leicester’s breakfast personalities Jim Davies and Jo Hayward, helped present the awards on the evening.
They congratulated all the nominees for their hard work and dedication, adding they were very proud to present awards to so many deserving recipients and recognise their role in helping all children achieve their very best.
Leicester Mercury editor, Richard Bettsworth, said: “It’s been hugely humbling to hear how many people are going that extra mile in our local schools. The School Awards gave us the opportunity to recognise the talents of so many individuals and all nominees, whether they are winners or not, deserve our congratulations.”
Millfield L.E.A.D Academy, in Braunstone, were awarded the Active Community Award for its work to forge links outside school, including a tree planting scheme in the Lubbesthorpe flood relief area.
Head Pete Wood said: “It’s a great privilege to be put forward for an award. We work really hard to make the curriculum engaging and active, and strongly believe that schools are at the heart of their communities and should therefore play a big part in them.”
