Active School Hero - Nominations Open!
Active kids are healthier, happier and more successful. They perform better in their classrooms, communities and future careers. That’s why ukactive Kids and Nike have launched Active School Hero, to recognise the achievements of those people working in primary schools across greater London who are helping to get kids active.
We would really appreciate your help in promoting Active School Hero within your schools and across your networks to encourage people to nominate – the initiative will identify ‘heroes’ in every one of London’s boroughs.
Nominations are free of charge and you may nominate as many Heroes as you would like. It can be any school staff member in a London primary school who helps kids be active; from the lollypop lady, teaching assistant and librarian to the catering staff, active travel lead or the after school activities manager. The nominations will close on April 8th at 11:59pm.
Nominations can be made through this website and please see below for the toolkit to promote the award through your networks and feel free to share the attached posters.

Masterpieces in Schools Project - Havering
Between now and May 2020, Art UK are seeking collection partners to participate in our relaunched Masterpieces in Schools programme.
In May 2017, Art UK received funding to begin the next major stage of its work. Supported by the HLF, Arts Council England, the Scottish Government, a range of large and small grant-giving trusts, and over 70 individual and corporate donors, Art UK will spend the next three years cataloguing the UK’s national collection of sculpture. This initiative will see around 170,000 sculptures from inside public collections and across the nation’s streets and squares showcased on the artuk.org website by 2020.
As part of the Sculpture project, we will be running an extensive programme of learning and engagement activities across the country, including a repeat of the successful Masterpieces in Schools initiative from 2013.
Our relaunched Masterpieces in Schools initiative has been made possible by the generous support of the Heritage Lottery Fund,the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, Hiscox, and RK Harrison.

Meet the Apprentices at a local school near you, 4th April 2019 @ Havering College
National Apprenticeship Week 2019
The 12th annual National Apprenticeship Week will run from 4 to 8 March 2019, and the theme for The Week is ‘Blaze A Trail’, inspired by this year’s new ‘Fire It Up’ national marketing campaign. This annual celebration of apprenticeships will bring the whole apprenticeship community together to celebrate the impact of apprenticeships on individuals, employers and the economy. We wanted to use this week to showcase all the incredible opportunities doing an apprenticeship can bring - both for individuals firing up their careers, and for employers blazing a trail in their business and reaping the benefits of employing an apprentice.
To celebrate this year we are sharing case studies of local success stories across Havering schools, please see attached a case studies:
Crownfield Infant school to find out more about how they have recruited apprentices into Learning Support Assistant roles and a Caretaking apprenticeship role.
Langtons Infant School who currently have two apprentices working with them a Nursey Nurse and a Welfare Administration Assistant Apprentice.
Harold Wood Primary School who have an apprentice working Level 3 Business Admin.
Meet the apprentice
We would like to invite you all to come along and find out more about how it is working in local schools and meet the apprentices and schools who are accessing their apprenticeship levy.
You will get an opportunity to meet with apprentices and head teachers to get an insight into the benefits for both employers and employees with an understanding into how the schools are meeting the 20% off the job training requirements.
The event will also provide an update on the apprenticeship levy guidance, new standards that have been approved and an opportunity to make enquires about planning future apprenticeship opportunities with Havering College.
