Primary and secondary schools across South Holland, Bourne, the Deepings and south of Boston still have time to enter our Education Awards.

The Lincolnshire Free Press and Spalding Guardian, in association with Duncan and Toplis Chartered Accountants and Business Advisers, are giving due recognition to the efforts of pupils, students, teachers and support staff who work in education.

Schools throughout our coverage area are showing great interest in the awards but there is still time for your pupils, students, teachers and support staff to be considered in one or more of the 12 categories being judges later this month.

The award categories include Contribution to the Community, Environmental, Primary Headteacher of the Year, Secondary Headteacher of the Year, Inspirational Primary Teacher of the Year and Inspirational Secondary Teacher of the Year.

There are also categories for Most Improved Student, Outstanding Sporting Achievement, Primary School of the Year, Secondary School of the Year, Student of the Year and the Support Staff Award.

Jeremy Ransome, editor of the Lincolnshire Free Press, said: “I am delighted that entries are still coming in from schools across our area.

“But I would urge parents, governors, teachers, headteachers, support staff and students from those schools that haven’t yet entered to take part in our Education Awards.

“We would especially welcome entries from primary and secondary schools in Bourne, the Deepings and villages south of Boston, as well as from South Holland, for the awards to be presented at South Holland Centre, Spalding, on Wednesday November 12 at 7pm.”

If you know a pupil student who has turned their academic performance around to the astonishment of their classmates and teachers, why not nominate them for the Most Improved Student Award.

Likewise, if your class or school has demonstrated a commitment to recycling or saving energy, the Environmental Award is for them.

But remember, the deadline is Friday October 17.
