We are really pleased to announce that we have been shortlisted in three categories for this year’s ERA awards.
Our first shortlisted category is for Primary Resource or Equipment including ICT for Space Adventures, this unique and engaging cross curricular resource is based around an original story commissioned by LGfL by the award-winning author Cath Howe. It features dramatic content and a virtual reality experience linked to the narrative. The resource features a comprehensive set of resources for Maths, Literacy, Science and Computing and is also LGfL’s most accessible yet with text transcripts, audio books, flashcards and subtitled videos.
‘We are delighted that our most inclusive resource development – Space Adventure’s, has been recognised for a prestigious ERA Award. It offers an engaging, exciting and relevant focus for challenging Maths, Science, Literacy and Computing curriculum activities for Key Stage 2 and 3 learners’ Bob Usher Content Manager, LGfL
“It’s great to see a cross curricular resource that encourages creativity recognised in these awards. Many elements of this resource have been developed by teachers working in London classrooms. It’s fantastic that the work of London teachers and resource makers have been identified.” Max Wainewright author of computing resources for Space Adventures
Our second shortlisted category is for Collaboration between School and Supplier with Elm Park Primary School in the London Borough of Havering, this new category looks suppliers who have worked with schools in an innovative, personalised way to help generate operational excellence, or drive up standards of attainment.
Elm Park Primary school in Havering is one of many schools who LGfL have worked with and over the last two years this collaboration has involved many and varied strands, that have been both innovative and have supported the everyday life of the school enhancing the opportunities for both pupils and teachers within the school. All of these have been within their current subscription which not only provides a robust and secure broadband connection to the school but also enables them to make cost savings through the purchase of associated services.
In the words of their HeadTeacher Vicki Morris “LGfL is at the heart of what we do”
Our final shortlisted category is for Supplier of the Year – Not for Profit, this category is for companies that supply educational establishments (either directly or indirectly) with high-quality, safe products appropriate to their everyday teaching and learning needs. The video below highlights why some of schools value being part of the LGfL community:
