We are proud to support the Kent Teacher of the Year Awards 2021!
Last updated 5 February 2021
Once again, the search has begun for the Kent Teacher of the Year. Organisers of the prestigious annual awards event are now accepting nominations from the public, professionals in the education sector and from school staff.
These awards take on a special significance after a year of massive – and continuing – challenge for the education sector. Nominations will undoubtedly take account of the special and changing circumstances that schools and teachers have contended with this year, and aims to find the very best teachers, support staff and volunteers working within schools across Kent and Medway. We are searching for individuals and teams of people who go above and beyond the call of duty for the benefit of their pupils and school – and wider community.
This year’s contest – organised by the KM Charity Team – will culminate in an awards ceremony at the Ashford International Hotel in October 2021.
We are proud to be supporting the event again in 2021 and will present one of the top awards on the night.
Academic categories include: literacy, maths, sport, foreign languages, science – biosciences, physics, chemistry, forensics, drama and performing arts, history, citizenship and politics, fine art and music and early years foundation stage leader, as well as the major categories of primary school teacher of the year, secondary school teacher of the year, team of the year, senior leadership team and head teacher of the year.
For volunteers and non-teaching staff there are also categories for their valued contribution to our schools. Everything from career advisers, those involved with pastoral care, school secretaries, dinner ladies and caretakers will be recognised through the event, as will members of the PTA, school governors and volunteer readers.
Phil Reynolds, Senior Manager and Academies and Education Specialist said: “We are delighted to be sponsoring the Kent Teacher of the Year Awards again for 2021, where we will be sponsoring the ‘School Business Manager of the year’ category. The past 12 months have been a tumultuous time for schools, their management and their teams. School Business Managers have been doing more unusual tasks this year than normal and have been simply amazing! These awards are one of the few places that individual effort and achievement can be recognised – and we look forward to hearing the stories of the individuals being nominated.”
Kent Teacher of the Year is staged by the KM Charity Team and is supported by Kent County Council, Medway Council and the KM Group. Nominations are now open and will close on 6 June.
