We Celebrated Stars in Our Schools!

Birmingham branch supports the Stars in our Schools. This is a recognition and celebration of school support staff. UNISON has organised a day to celebrate the wonderful work support staff do every day and to make sure the world knows just how vital they are to children’s education.

School support staff – the Stars in Our Schools

It takes a whole team to make a school a safe and happy place for children to learn. School support staff help children learn, keep children safe and healthy and make sure schools run smoothly. They are the caterers, the admin staff, the finance officers, the early years practitioners, the teaching assistants, the librarians, the ICT technicians, the parent support advisers, and more.

School support staff – the unsung heroes

School support staff are vital to the effective running of a school, but this is not often recognised as they are usually tucked away behind the scenes. They are the unsung heroes of our children’s education.

Let’s celebrate school support staff

Once a year, schools taking part in Stars in Our Schools hold award ceremonies, special assemblies and tea parties in schools across the UK to say thank you to Support staff for all they do

“School support staff are the backbone of every school and play a vital role in educating our children.”

Dave Prentis, UNISON general secretary
