Shrewsbury Academy recognised for enhancing the life and wellbeing of young people
On the evening of the 28th April, Miss Johnson Headteacher alongside Mrs Howells our Safeguarding Liaison Officer, attended the Mayor of Shrewsbury Unsung Hero Awards at Theatre Severn.
Shrewsbury Academy were nominated for an award under the Youth category and it was a real privilege for our school to be nominated and invited to the awards. There were lots of amazing charities, businesses and people sharing the wonderful work they do selflessly and the impact this has on our town.
It was with great pleasure and excitement that Shrewsbury Academy were announced as the overall winners of the Youth category in recognition of our achievements towards ‘enhancing the life and wellbeing of young people in the area’.
We were nominated for the S4T food scheme we offer in school, which was originally set up by Sue Thomas who sadly passed away in January 2021. The concept of the scheme – being no child should attend school on an empty tummy. Staff at Shrewsbury Academy have continued this scheme in loving memory of Sue and selflessly deliver, prepare food parcels and have supported over 100 families, with kind donations from Shrewsbury Food bank and the community of Shrawardine, staff and families. We have been able to provide Christmas and Easter parcels to our families and refer to agencies if required. This has enabled school to build robust links with families in our community.
