National Awards for Pastoral Care in Education
About the prize
The society of Pastoral Care in Education, The National Association for Pastoral Care in Education (NAPCE), has joined forces with UK Pastoral Chat to launch an exciting new awards scheme for pastoral care providers in the education sector.
The Awards will be an excellent opportunity to share good practice in pastoral care and through the social media and websites of both organisations to raise awareness of where pastoral support is making a real difference in the educational experience of young people.
The awards will encourage new initiatives and ideas in pastoral care and will recognise the contributions being made to developing policy and practice in pastoral support.
This is an opportunity to recognise the impact the work of pastoral staff is having on the achievement and well being of young people.
The decisions about prize winners in each category will be made by a panel of invited professionals who work in pastoral care.
There will be a prize of £100.00 for the school or institution for the winners of each category and individuals will also be recognised for their achievements.
The finalists of the inaugural National Awards for Pastoral Care in Education will be invited to attend a ceremony in 2020 and NAPCE will be announcing details of the event shortly.

- Pastoral School of the Year: A school that can demonstrate a commitment to pastoral care and support for learners that makes a real difference in the progress and personal development of young people in the school
