Stars in our Schools

Stars in Our Schools is an annual celebration of school support staff. This year the event will take place on Friday 26 November – but we encourage schools to join in whenever it suits them!

Derbyshire UNISON is encouraging every member working in a Derbyshire school to get involved, whoever you work for - be it employed directly by the school, academy trust, council or private firm providing catering, cleaning or caretaking. It is for everyone!

UNISON has written to every head teacher (see below) in the county; make sure they know you and the rest of the support staff want them to get involved!

Hidden Hero Awards 2021

This year, UNISON East Midlands are excited to announce that, in addition to celebrating school support staff across the East Midlands as part of Stars in Our Schools, we will be hosting our first, UNISON East Midlands ‘Hidden Hero Awards’.
That is why we need your help to nominate colleagues that you know have gone above and beyond in making your school a safe and happy place for children to learn.
We then intend to come into your school, present your colleague with a shiny award, a £50 voucher and to make a big fuss of them.
