Example Nomination 1
Practice
Alex has been running the ‘Geezers to Gentlemen’ programme as his Middle Leadership Impact Initiative. The programme was initiated to promote positive behaviour and manners amongst challenging boys. The first cohort participated in workshops involving a variety of topics, including positive relationships with staff and how appearance can affect impressions. Group presentations were performed in front of their parents, to provide an important link with the parental community. The pupils in the first cohort are now ‘Gentlemen Graduates’ and have started leading the second cohort as mentors with exceptional maturity and confidence.

Impact
Involving more staff has led to the introduction of the ‘Ladettes to Ladies’ course, allowing for the positive work to be carried out amongst a larger number of pupils from across the school community. With regard to student response, the outcomes have been excellent. Use of the school Pupil Support Provision has been reduced by 30% within one term. Whilst this is a tremendous outcome for a process that is still in its infancy, the maturity with which students have worked alongside their peers and mentors has been refreshing.

Example Nomination 2
Practice
Ermina has worked closely with parents at St Edmund’s NSCC for the last nine years.She has been involved with the Sharing Stories Project, organising and running Sharing Stories workshops for the last 3 and half years. This project aims to promote sharing books and stories with young children and developing parents’ understanding of the value this has for their children’s development and learning. Workshops include a variety of activities related to a chosen book. The props children and parents make are then taken home alongside their own copy of the book. Sharing Stories workshops are held each term and this experience has been invaluable for developing children’s confidence,bond with their parent and language and cognitive development.

Impact
The Sharing Stories Project has seen 100% of families attend these sessions with 160 children taking part. Visitors from other schools have been amazed by the involvement of all our families who are always relaxed and happy to do activities with their children and staff. Feedback from parents has been seen in our questionnaires which show children love their books from school and how they use props to tell the story to other family members. Parents have also been sending us videos of children retelling stories at home. In classrooms it has been observed that more children use books independently, their vocabulary has increased and they are making links between different stories.
