Local outreach group recognised with educational award

July 17, 2017 by  

A hospital education unit dedicated to young people and children unable to go to school as a result of health problems has been presented with a Northamptonshire Education Awards trophy.

Far Cotton’s Hospital and Outreach Education in Northampton was the recipient of the award, which was presented at a recent ceremony. The Daventry Express, the Northampton Chronicle and Echo, and the Northants Telegraph were organisers of the event.

Stage Theatre sponsored the category (Special School or SEN Provision of the Year), in which finalists were announced as Teamwork Trust’s John Akers and Windmill School’s Mr. Bateson.

The panel of judges explained the role of the winners, saying:

“There are two teaching centres in the general hospitals, two in CAMHS settings, two outreach centres and students in homes and integrating back to school with another one about to open in a unit for young people with eating disorders.”

Hospital and Outreach Education caters for young people aged from 4 to 18, providing them with direct learning with the aim of getting them back into school or progressing in formal education.

When the Hospital and Outreach Education decides to run its next promotion campaign, it can proudly include mention of its new award. Organisations often like to promote news like this through newsletter printing or even embed it into their logo design.
