Pride of Harlow at Education Awards

Education: Primary / Fri 27th Nov 2015 at 05:01pm

Education AwardsTHE outstanding educational progress and contribution of 30 young people was recognised at the annual Harlow Educational Progress Awards held last night (24 November 2015).

The awards, organised by Harlow Council and the Harlow Strategic Educational Attainment Partnership, reward and recognise young people who have made significant progress in their education and who have made a real contribution to their schools and the community.

All 30 young people were nominated by their schools for the progress and contributions they have made at different learning stages often overcoming significant challenges to do so. This year a record number of nominees were made after 19 young people were nominated last year.

Over 100 people attended the awards ceremony held in the Council Chamber at the Civic Centre. The awards were presented by Professor Michael Thorne, Vice Chancellor of Anglia Ruskin University.

The awards, which were open to all schools in Harlow, were judged by Malcolm Morley (Chief Executive Harlow Council and Chairman of the Harlow Strategic Educational Attainment Partnership), John Keddie (Chairman of the Harlow Enterprise Zone Board), Jackie Sully (Chief Executive of Rainbow Services) and Professor David Hawker, an independent education expert.

Each young person was given a framed certificate and gift vouchers to mark their achievement. Trophies were presented to winning schools.

Councillor Jon Clempner, Leader of Harlow Council, said: “Although Harlow Council is not the Education Authority I am pleased that we continue to support these awards to encourage and reward educational progress to help raise the aspirations and life chances of Harlow’s young people. We need to ensure that our young people are in the best place to seize the future career opportunities being created in Harlow with the relocation of Public Health England and the ongoing development of Harlow Enterprise Zone.”

The awards were hosted by Harlow Council’s Chief Executive, Malcolm Morley, who declined a pay increase in 2013/14 to fund the awards as his personal contribution to supporting educational progress in Harlow. The money allocated for the pay increase was put in a budget which will continue to fund the annual awards.

Malcolm Morley said: “The young people recognised by the awards have illustrated by their energy, enthusiasm and achievement their ability and desire for educational progression. Young people in Harlow have huge potential and I’m sure that those recognised will continue to fulfil their potential. They are role models for other young people and I look forward to the awards next year when other young people can be similarly recognised.”
