Aldridge Appreciates Award Winners
The first set of award winners for Aldridge Appreciates have been announced. Special thanks to Laura Needham, who runs this initiative, we had over 60 nominations from across the Trust in our first round - these included trustees, governors, and staff from across the Trust. We send certificates to every nominee and thank them for their contribution to our work, aligned to one of our operating norms. Bronze, silver, and gold winners are then determined by a small selection panel and are sent a small gift and certificate. We encourage Principals to award these at whole-staff events, where possible and we ask for photos so that we can celebrate as a Trust family.
Here's a list of all of our winners, all of whom received a certificate of thanks from us this past week. Nominees include staff at every single area of function, of seniority, of location - which is just what we hoped for so we're thrilled!
And here are our winners:
Here is our gold certificate winner Mat Tomson, Head of Maths at BACA who truly sets the standard for all to follow. He was nominated not only for the stellar job he does of leaving no one behind in Maths but also for his incredible generosity and work in giving of himself in terms of time, effort, and money as he supports charitable work at BACA and sets the most fabulous role model for all who witness what he does.
