Schools’ Educate Awards success celebrated by sponsor

An Educate Award sponsor honoured the 2014 winners by sending a commemorative video book to every winning school.

The Foundry Agency, which sponsored the Communication Award, is a multi-discipline communications agency based in Liverpool city centre. The team showed off their creative flair and digital expertise by producing an innovative video book which played highlights of the night’s ceremony and congratulated the schools on their prestigious accolade.

Fiona Barnet, director of The Foundry Agency, says: “We wanted to create something unique and memorable to honour the amazing winners of this year’s Educate Awards. The book is a huge congratulations from us and a wonderful way to sign off an impressive 2014 for the schools.”

Fiona visited Whitefield Primary, which won the Communication and Most Inspirational Primary School awards, and its headteacher, Nadine Carroll in the same week they received a personal letter from MP David Laws congratulating them on being amongst the top 100 performing schools in the country in terms of the progress their pupils make between key stage 1 and the end of key stage 2.

Fiona adds: ‘The response we’ve had has been great, we’re so thrilled that schools are displaying the books pride of place and sharing them with pupils and parents. Visiting the inspirational Whitefield Primary today has highlighted how important the awards are for this area and we’re so delighted to be part of this event celebrating the best of education.”

The Foundry Agency has supported the Educate Awards since its inception, and will be returning as an awards sponsor for 2015.
