STEWARDS Academy was delighted to have been named as a finalist in the National Place2Be Well-being in Schools Awards, in the School Community Section.

They were also very proud of former Longwood pupil Cerys Kenny who is now a student at Stewards. Cerys, was entered in the ‘Child Champion’ category actually winning the award. Whilst at Longwood, Cerys developed a unique workbook approach to help fellow pupils to overcome anger and to explore their feelings around issues upsetting them.

The Award Ceremony was held at Mansion House, London and the Duchess of Cambridge who is the Royal Patron of Place2Be was in attendance. The Duchess met all of the finalists and gave a very illuminating speech, in which she talked in very positive terms about her visit to Stewards with the Duke of Cambridge.

The Academy was represented by Ms Murthar (Head Teacher) Mr Naunton (Inclusion Manager) and Jo Diribe (Place2Be Project Manager) The Academy is very proud to be recognised for its efforts in removing the stigma often associated with mental health, for our proactive work in supporting children and parents and also for the contribution made to the well-being of the local community.
