19/20 Secondary Major Award Winners
EdufundUK are excited to announce the Major Award Winners for 2020:
Winner (£10,000): Bishop’s Hatfield Girls School (PE bid)
Isabelle Fautrero-Sayer (School Development Officer) coordinated an excellent bid for equipment and training to introduce cricket into the school curriculum.
Highly Commended (£5,000): Ashlyns School (PE bid)
John Preston (Head of PE) won funds towards replacing the school’s worn-out long-jump pit.
Highly Commended (£5,000): Parmiter’s School (PE bid)
Tom Clark (Head of PE) won the HC award towards multi-gym equipment.
Commended (£1,000): Bishops Hatfield Girls School (Effective Learning bid)
Sophy Lawrence (Mental Health Lead/HOY) won an (unplanned) award towards her bid for a cohesive package of activities/resources including workshops in study skills and stress management, establishing a lending library of wellbeing/stress management books and corresponding pages to their website and staff training.
Commended (£1,000): Bishops Hatfield Girls School (STEM bid)
Isabelle Fautrero-Sayer (again!) coordinated a bid for a package of science equipment, visualisers and Chromebooks to raise achievement in STEM through more practical work.
We will post a more detailed account of these bids shortly.
This year, PE was certainly the most successful area and one school won three awards. Although it could be argued a greater spread of focus areas/schools would be preferable, we hope this demonstrates that our judges rely on our impartial mark scheme to assess all bids consistently regardless of school or focus area.
