Branch officers were out in force on Friday 24th November 2023 for Stars In Our Schools as we visited some of our Sefton schools with cakes and goodie bags!
UNISON takes pride in celebrating public service workers, and our annual Stars In Our Schools celebration is an important part of showing our appreciation for the tremendous work that early years & school support staff put in up & down the Country.
Early years staff & school support staff together do far more than facilitate learning – they help create an environment where children and young people are secure, happy, safe & motivated.
It takes entire teams to keep schools and nurseries going. Children are kept safe and healthy by cleaners, catering staff, crossing patrol officers and child protection officers. They learn and excel with the help of teaching and classroom assistants, librarians and technicians.
And nurseries and schools run smoothly thanks to the work of admin assistants, finance officers and business managers. These are just some of the roles our members do in nurseries and schools up and down the UK.
Here in Sefton, we celebrate support staff in schools as we believe our members are the back bone in every school and we love it when so many of our schools celebrate with us by hosting special assemblies, coffee mornings or special lunch times.
Remember, we’re always happy to do workplace meetings anytime – and we might even bring cake!!
