York Steiner School Shortlisted for TWO Major Awards
We are proud and excited to confirm that York Steiner School has been shortlisted for two major education awards.
Our school is one of 8 finalists in the highly prestigious TES School Awards category for ‘Creative School of the Year’. This honour is based on a celebration of how we hold creativity at the centre of our pedagogy, from Early Years right through to Class 8. Not only this, but the judges look for a school which inspires creativity in the children and in the school community.
We are luck to have an incredibly supportive community which embraces and joins with our creative approach, and it is fantastic that this has been recognised at a national level.
As if this were not amazing enough, our Class 4 teacher, Fiona Dudley, has been recognised as one of the best teachers in the country. Fiona is one of 5 shortlisted for ‘Teacher of the Year in a Primary School’ in the highly respected and very high profile Pearson Teaching Awards.
Pearson say: “Finalists were selected from thousands of nominations from across the UK and Fiona joins a list of 67 exceptional teachers [in 13 categories] who are the Teaching Awards “stars” of the education profession for 2015. Finalists will find out if they have received a Pearson Teaching Awards on Thank a Teacher Day, 12 June 2015. Winners will then be invited to the star-studded UK final to be held at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, in October 2015 which is filmed and broadcast by the BBC. The Pearson Teaching Awards were established by David (Lord) Puttnam in 1999, to celebrate and recognize outstanding educational professionals.”
