We are very happy to share that Nosy Crow will be the new sponsor of the UKLA Literacy School of the Year Award.
The UKLA Literacy School of the Year Roll of Honour celebrates schools providing rich, exciting, innovative curriculums in English whilst achieving good outcomes for their pupils. From a number of strong submissions for the UKLA Literacy School of the Year 2017, four are selected for the Roll of Honour 2017.
The schools are:
Altmore Infant School and Children’s Centre, East Ham, London
Hill Mead Primary, Brixton, London
Horfield Church of England Primary School, Bristol
Woodside Primary School, Aberdeen
The winning school will be announced on July 1st at the UKLA International Conference, at the University of Strathclyde.
UKLA President Andrew Lambeth said: “This award has become an aspirational and recognised kite mark for schools of excellence in literacy.”
Kate Wilson, Managing Director, Nosy Crow, said: “We are delighted to be working alongside the UKLA to sponsor the UKLA Literacy School of the Year 2017. Every year, at the UKLA International Conference, we are delighted by the level of enthusiasm for children’s literature and literacy. As a publisher of both books and apps, it’s a pleasure to know that what we create with our authors and illustrators is in such skilled hands and that, as a result, children are getting the very best out of them in the classroom. Of course, as well as their enthusiasm for literature and literacy we also have to mention the profound understanding and knowledge of both topics exhibited by UKLA members – topics we at Nosy Crow feel are profoundly important to children both in and outside the classroom, during their school years and far beyond.”
