Schools shortlisted for NASS Awards
We’re delighted to announce that Hall Cliffe Primary School in Yorkshire and Westmorland School in Lancashire have been shortlisted for the prestigious National Association of Independent Schools & Non-Maintained Special Schools (NASS) Awards. The schools have been shortlisted for the NASS Breaking Barriers Award.
Claire Traynor, Head Teacher of Hall Cliffe Primary School proudly commented:
"I am delighted that we have been shortlisted for the 2021 NASS Awards. For the award application we focused our attention on Careers Week, where we have been fortunate to be able to arrange video calls from professionals. This year, children enjoyed virtually meeting a radio presenter/DJ, a personal trainer who delivered a training session, and a nurse. During the video calls, the professionals shared what their typical working day looked like. They shared the types of experience and training that they have completed and during the session, our children asked a range of interesting questions regarding their roles."
"The opportunity has inspired our pupils to look into different career paths and plan for their futures with great enthusiasm."
Sue Asher, Head Teacher of Westmorland School was thrilled with the announcement and commented:
"We're proud that our work is being recognised by NASS. Our application focused on a pupil who has come so far with our brilliant team supporting him to overcome so many obstacles. A massive thanks to everyone involved with this incredible success."
The winners will be announced at the 2021 NASS Annual Conference being held on the 12 & 13 October at The Principal Hotel, York. If the award is won, they will be presented with a trophy.
We look forward to the announcement of the winners and well done to everyone on receiving such amazing recognition for amazing efforts throughout the school.
