Local, Regional and National Awards
Eldon’s impressive journey continues to inspire the whole community
both locally and nationally!
Most recently, Eldon is proud to have been shortlisted for the
National TES ‘Best Use of Technology’ Award 2020!
At Eldon we place a huge emphasis on the importance of technology in everyday life and the role it can play in developing specific computing skills whilst applying these across the curriculum to raise standards. The installation of technology within school can come with a high cost and as such we deliver effective systems, which are utilised in dynamic and creative ways. Computing has taken precedence over the last three years with the appointment of specialist computing teacher who plans, resources, team teaches and assesses along with class teachers. Last year, the appointment a STEAM Teacher opened up further opportunities for more spectacular, joined-up learning!
We are hugely excited about the award ceremony which is taking place on Friday 13th November!
We have been the local ‘Lancashire Evening Post Primary School of the Year’ for four consecutive years (2015 - 2018) and the North West Educate Awards ‘Most inspirational Primary School of the Year 2018 and 2019! In 2018, Eldon was awarded the prestigious ‘TES Primary School of the Year Award’.
As an ‘Outstanding’ school (Ofsted 2017) with National ‘Flagship’ Status for Inclusion, our teachers, pupils, parents and Governors are unreservedly proud of our soaring achievements. Our standards remain among the best in the country when compared with similar schools. Through our innovative curriculum, Eldon is always looking for ways to develop the skills of our children. Our children relish the opportunity of accessing 25 different after school clubs run weekly, which develop our children’s personalities, skills and characteristics. Since ‘Eldon Experts the Best!’ we are living our vision, ensuring Eldon expects the best... we are ‘the very best we can be!’
SHORTLISTED FOR THE TES SCHOOLS AWARDS 2020
Friday 25 September 2020
The most outstanding individuals and institutions that the education sector has to offer have been recognised in the shortlist for the Tes Schools Awards 2020.
It's been revealed that Eldon Primary School has been shortlisted for the 'Best use of Technology' award.
Tes editor Ann Mroz said: “It is always a highlight of the education calendar to see the best ideas and people lauded at the Tes Schools Awards. But this year, it felt more important than ever to run an event that showcased and celebrated the hard work that teachers and school staff do for children and their local community every single day. This has been one of the most difficult years in education, but – as ever – teachers continue to rise to the challenge.
"We had a record number of entries this year and the standard was very high, so all those shortlisted should be very proud: it's an extraordinary achievement to be on this shortlist."
Sadly we cannot hold the awards night in person this year as we had planned. For the very first time, award winners will be announced at a virtual ceremony on Friday 13 November 2020.
