The Shine Trust which funds projects that help disadvantaged young people to realise their academic potential, has announced that the Let Teachers SHINE competition has re-opened for applications.
Let Teachers SHINE offers up to £15,000 to teachers who have brilliant ideas to help disadvantaged children succeed in English, maths or science. It's free to enter and open to any qualified, practising teacher working in England.
Your project must:
- Be innovative
- Target economically disadvantaged children – using Pupil Premium eligibility as a general indicator of economic disadvantage
- Be scalable – i.e. projects which can be scaled up and replicated easily, whether that be in other schools or areas, or working with a higher number of students.
Previous winners have used sport as a tool to increase attainment. E.g.: Projects have included:
* The expansion of a successful pilot project called 'active phonics', which taps into young people's love of sport to improve their reading skills, and
* A series of writing project which stretched 13-14 year old students such through such as sports journalism, advertising and children's stories.
The deadline for applications is midday on Tuesday 17th April 2018.
