It's time to nominate teachers, support teams and leaders in the Teach Portsmouth Awards Live as we recognise their incredible achievements in the waterfront city.
Entries for the long service award have now closed. Submissions for the category were open earlier this year. If you would like to recognise colleagues in other categories, you will need to complete a new submission. We will combine both submissions together on your behalf ready for shortlisting.
This award celebrates 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. Nominations should outline the contribution that the nominee makes to the school and the impact of their work. For this category, please be mindful of workload issues and the need to ensure that we are not encouraging or celebrating a climate that increases workload.
Inclusion is a strength of many of the schools in the city. We have some amazing Inclusion Teams who embed inclusive practice on a day to day basis as part of their roles. This award celebrates the work of those staff (individuals or teams) through implementing a strategy over time or working on a particular project, which has made a difference to inclusive practice and celebrating diversity. Nomination should include an outline of the project / strategy and outline how it has affected pupils, staff and the wider school community from one of more of the protected characteristics:
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 done and how it has affected the community. Nominations in this category should be supported by a brief testimony from the community.
The partnership award criteria requires two organisations or partners who have worked together on a project or initiative. This is different from the Community and Collaboration Award as this award highlights an individual or small team who have made a difference in their organisation and have not worked with a third party. You must tell us who the organisation or partner is in your submission.
This award recognises the sustained and substantial impact of the nominee on the education of children and young people in Portsmouth. Nominations should include a short outline of the career of the nominee and the difference that they have made over time. For this category, the nominee's careers may include work beyond Portsmouth with no specific "length of service restriction" but the panel will be looking for significant impact on education in Portsmouth.
