Stars In Our Schools

DENTON COMMUNITY COLLEGE CELEBRATES STARS IN OUR SCHOOLS

 

School support staff across Tameside were recognised on Friday 25th November 2016 as part of a UK-wide celebration of the invaluable contribution they make to the education of pupils.   UNISON organised the 'Stars in Our Schools' events to promote the wonderful work school support staff do every day, and to make sure the world knows just how vital they are to every school.  An event was held at 10am at Denton Community College and support staff were invited to a presentation event hosted by the pupils themselves. 

 

 

The thank yous were lead by the Headteacher Mr Condliffe following which the school’s choir took centre stage with their stunning rendition of Major Lazer’s Cold Water, which was met with some teary eyes in the auditorium, the atmosphere was so emotional and heartfelt.  Sarah France, UNISON read a poem entitled “Stars” and introduced Andrew Gwynne, MP who presented. Both Sarah France and Andrew Gwynne were from the two schools which became Denton Community College and officially opened in October 2012. 

The pupils then gave Special Recognition Awards to support staff who had been nominated and voted on by pupils for going that extra mile.  Pupils had taken time to work on a short talk of why the nominee was selected and a small insight into their work at the school.  After the ceremony there was of course cake, balloons and certificates for all support staff and a special gathering in the Board Room for those with Special Recognition which was attended and hosted by Andrew Gwynne, MP, Councillor Allison Gwynne, Mr Condliffe and the Chair of Governors.

 

Sarah France, a UNISON organiser based in Tameside said "This annual UK-wide celebration day is a great opportunity for pupils, parents and teachers to promote the exceptional work of their support staff and thank them for their contribution.  School support staff are so often the unsung heroes in our schools and play an integral part in the education of young people. Their roles are incredibly diverse, from cooks, cleaners and caretakers to family support advisers, examinations staff and school business managers. They play a vital role in every aspect of school life and without them schools could not run.  The event at Denton Community College meant all that bit more to me because I attended one of the schools which formed it – so it gave me a chance to come back and thank the support staff who helped and supported me"

 

 

Mr Condliffe, Headteacher at Denton Community College said “Support Staff play a key role in supporting our students.  I am delighted that UNISON’s "Stars in Our Schools" event provides an opportunity to recognise and celebrate their hard work and commitment.”

 

Year 9 Student at Denton Community College said “Our support staff play an important role by challenging us to achieve our goals and ensure we are happy and safe. They always put 100% effort into everything they do and we are so grateful for them”

 

 

Andrew Gwynne MP, who will be presented the Special Recognition Awards said “The fantastic work of school support staff too often goes unnoticed. For children to truly excel at school they need not only the best teachers but a strong infrastructure of support staff to provide both academic and emotional support.  UNISON’s ‘Stars in our Schools’ initiative is a great opportunity for us to fully appreciate the outstanding work of school assistants up and down the country that keeps our schools running smoothly.”
