Primary school in Kirton nominated for further awards
Kirton Primary School has been shortlisted for two prestigious awards.
The school has been nominated in the Children and Young People Now Awards 2018 under two categories ‘Learning’ and ‘Advice and Guidance’.
It comes after the success of its Learn and Earn system for the work the school has completed with its in-school shop and bank which teaches children about money.
They have also been awarded the national Money Management Award by the Community Education Awards.
Executive head teacher Nicky Donley said: "It has been both exciting and rewarding to have the innovative work the school has undertaken, with regards to money management and in motivating children to learn, recognised by such a variety of organisations and fields over the last 24 months.
"This particular nomination is unique in that we are the only school to be shortlisted so to have the work of a primary school recognised alongside county councils and banking institutions is a real honour."
The school has its own special currency called 'Kirts'. Each child has their own 'bank account' and can earn Kirts for achievement.
The awards will be announced in London on November 21.
