I missed the North Of England Teaching Awards Ceremony in Sheffield last week but Leeds schools brought home a hat full of trophies...
  • Meanwood CE Primary School won the DCSF Award for Sustainable Schools;
  • In the NCSL Award for Headteacher of the Year in a Primary School category distinctions went to Helen Sanderson, headteacher at Meanwood CE Primary School and Jim Vincent headteacher at the Whartons Primary School in Otley;
  • In the Award for Special Needs Teacher of the Year category a distinction went to Jan Pulham from the NW SILC based at the Pennyfields site and a commendation went to Karin Scattergood from St Theresa's RC Primary School;
  • In the BT Award for Teacher of the Year in a Primary School a distinction went to Siobhan Leonard from Rothwell St Mary's RC Primary School;
  • In the Ted Wragg Award for Lifetime Achievement sponsored by The Innovation Unit a distinction went to Peter Woodhead headteacher at St Peter's CE Primary School;
  • In the Guardian Award for Teacher of the Year in a Secondary School a commendation went to David Pearce from Roundhay School and Technology College.
Meanwood CE Primary School will now go on to the national finals of the Teaching Awards to be held in London on October 19. Good luck to Helen and her fantastic team.
