Stars in Our Schools


Posted in Branch news

They may not always get the headlines or the recognition that they deserve but UNISON understands just how important the support staff who help and care for the children in our schools are.

Each year, UNISON organises our Stars in Our Schools initiative to recognise the vitally important work that our support staff carry out each day.

The Covid-19 pandemic has impacted on everyone’s lives and schools have been front and centre of this, having to make adjustments and changes to ensure the wellbeing of their students, with support staff at the heart of the response.

This year, the celebration will take place on 27th November and UNISON North Tyneside is encouraging schools to take part in whatever way they can. Follow the link below to find resources for plenty of downloadable materials and ideas to make school stars feel special.

Nominate a Star

UNISON wants recognition of support staff to go that little bit further and so people are able to ‘Nominate a Star’ using the link below. Both the person nominating and the staff nominated will then be entered into a prize draw to win a £25 voucher.
