Pocklington School’s delight after winning Educate North Community Engagement Award
Pocklington School has been named as the winner of the Educate North Community Engagement Award (Schools) in a ceremony celebrating best practice and excellence in the education sector.
The award recognised its dynamic community engagement programme, which includes schools outreach activities, a student community action programme and its support of Chatta, an early year’s initiative focused on communication and language skills.
Its Schools Outreach Programme works with 25 infant, junior and senior schools in the local area, sharing with them experience, facilities and expertise.
The Programme began following discussions with the head teachers at several of the schools to assess areas of need and is reviewed annually to adapt to changing situations.
Toby Seth, Headmaster, Pocklington School said: “Not only does this award fill us with a great sense of pride, it also very much reflects the type of school Pocklington is.
“We are embedded in and deeply committed to our community and our commitment to engaging with our community is central to who we are.”
