Trust recognises ‘SCMAT Superstars’

Pupils from across South Cumbria Multi-Academy Trust were recognised for their achievements this week in the very first SCMAT Superstars Awards.

Winners from across six schools were rewarded for living the Trust’s values of excellence, respect, innovation, celebration, ambition and support in their daily lives.

They packed the theatre at Chetwynde School for the glittering event, which was held in front of staff, family and friends.

There were 34 winners from across Chetwynde, Ormsgill, Vickerstown, South Walney Juniors, Cambridge and Newbarns Primary and Nursery schools.

Chewynde Headteacher Stephen Jefferson said it was great to see so many pupils and families attending the very first SCMAT Superstar Awards.

“There have been some amazing nominations from teachers across our MAT and you are the best of the best,” he said.

“We would like to thank you for sharing our values, which we hope will help guide you not only here but in your future education and bright career you no doubt have ahead of you.”

Trust Board members attended including Chair of Trustees Phil Huck who gave a speech and presented the awards to pupils.

“Our Trust is hard wired to celebrate success and that is what tonight it about – you will meet some simply amazing young people.”

“Our values are about how we do things and they are equally important as what we do,” he told the audience. “This evening is an amazing example of those values in action.”

Each winner was presented with a certificate and a gift voucher to mark their success.

Professor Andrew Wren said the event aimed to show how the Trust lives its vision of inspiring young people and changing lives through excellence in education.

“Each school was asked to nominate a pupil for each value with everyone from nursery upwards eligible and we were so impressed by the stories we heard,” he said. “Our schools are individual but each has a commitment to working collaboratively under the shared values of the Trust. We are delighted to bring all our schools together to celebrate the pupils’ achievements.”
