Everton Nursery School and Family Centre, Liverpool takes the Early years setting of the year award at the prestigious 2017 Tes Schools Awards
London, 23 June 2017: Everton Nursery School and Family Centre, Liverpool has taken the Early years setting of the year award at the prestigious 2017 Tes Schools Awards. The awards, now in their ninth year, recognise outstanding contributions made by education teams and individuals to help students around the country to succeed, both inside and outside the classroom.
Of all the places the musicians of the Liverpool Philharmonic orchestra have played, Everton Nursery School and Family Centre must be among the most surprising. And yet to these musicians the setting is very familiar: the members work here with the children regularly. And they are not the only ones. Also in regular attendance are artists from Tate Liverpool.
This outreach, part of an effort to connect the young people in one of the most deprived areas of the city with the cultural spoils on their doorstep, is just one of many initiatives the staff have set in motion to improve the lives of the young people they teach. Other highlights include an extensive programme of outdoor education, a nurturing environment to provide support for students who are likely to find mainstream education difficult, and diverse learning opportunities to ensure that the complex social, emotional and behavioural needs of many of the children are met.
The school caught our judges’ attention because of its sustained service to the local area and its innovative approaches.
“The music programme is a fantastic example of how the arts can have a powerful impact in the earliest years of a child’s life,” they said. “It was lovely to see the celebration of a thirst for knowledge and a love of learning that the setting achieves for its children”.
