Meet the winners and shortlisted nominees

People's choice award

This award showcases teachers, teams and head teachers who have gone above and beyond the call of duty during the pandemic as voted for by Portsmouth. This is the only award that allows local residents to nominate school or college staff in the Teach Portsmouth Awards.

Innovation in teaching award

This award goes to staff who have developed new approaches and innovative practices that have had a positive impact on teaching and learning in Portsmouth. This is a really exciting award that highlights individuals or teams amazing contribution in the city.

Creativity award

This award goes to the staff who have developed new approaches or adapted teaching methods that go beyond the conventional curriculum which support creative thinking and provides opportunities for all pupils to expand their creativity.

Unsung hero award

This award is to celebrate the members of the whole school community who rarely get a mention and are never in the limelight but who are invaluable to the school and who have a record of outstanding contributions.

Inclusion and diversity award

This award celebrates the work of school staff who have implemented a strategy or project that has made a difference to inclusive practice and diversity. In this category, schools need to tell us how it has affected pupils and the wider community.

Community and collaboration award

This award is to celebrate the work of teams or an individual in the school that has made a significant impact on the local community. Nominations should include an outline of the work and how it has affected the community.

Partnership award

The partnership award requires two organisations or partners who have worked together on a project or initiative that has made a difference in their school or college. This is different from the community and collaboration award as nominators must tell us who the organisation is and why their actions have left a lasting impression on the school or college but not the wider community.

Outstanding contribution award

The outstanding contribution award recognises the sustained and substantial impact an individual has made on the education of children and young people in Portsmouth. Individuals in the shortlist may have had long careers in education, not just in Portsmouth but have made a significant impact in the city.

Long service award

The long service award is for teachers, support staff or leaders who have worked in the city for over 20 years. There is no overall winner in this category and everyone who is recognised will receive an award.
