National Awards

June 30, 2021,
Worsley Park Marriott Hotel, Manchester

The engage in their future National Awards is a scheme that celebrates the amazing progress and achievements of students at the national network of member schools, inviting staff to submit nominations in recognition of their students’ accomplishments.

There are nine core categories available which recognise all types of progress and achievement –

  1. Outstanding Personal Progress
  2. Outstanding Achievement
  3. Outstanding Personal Resilience
  4. Good Citizen Award
  5. Innovation and Creativity
  6. Team of the Year
  7. Sports Student/s of the Year
  8. Success Story

Nominations can be submitted online or offline via the Nomination Form.

Judging is undertaken by an independent panel that take the individual circumstances of each child into account. The journey through SEMH education is unique to each student with each one at a different stage of their own personal journey. Acknowledging the context of the student’s accomplishments and progress is therefore essential to making sure each nomination is judged on its own merits, not against generic benchmarks or expected standards.

All nominees receive a certificate and those that are short-listed are invited to attend the annual National Awards Ceremony to be presented with their certificate and trophy.

Given the circumstances caused by the Coronavirus pandemic, the decision was taken to cancel the 2020 National Awards and carry over to 2021 the nominations that had been received.

Plans for next year are already well underway and further information will provided in due course. We’re hoping that the 2021 scheme will be an even bigger celebration of the amazing progress and achievements of students at the national network of engage in their future member schools and can confirm that the 2021 National Awards Ceremony will take place on Wednesday 30th June 2021 at the Worlsey Park Marriott Hotel in Manchester.
