Who can submit an entry

Entries can be submitted by any adults working in the school or college. This includes all staff (including support staff) and governors. We are unable to accept entries from members of the public.

Governors may wish to discuss with the headteacher/principal about a nomination they'd like to make to see if they are better placed to provide the detail needed to support the entry.

Support staff may wish to discuss with other colleagues when nominating a member of staff, but this is not a requirement.
