Silver Award winners for Early Years Team of the Year 

Rebekah Aldous and Julie Iannelli from St Pancras Catholic Primary School have been recognised with a Silver Award for Early Years Team of the Year in the Pearson National Teaching Awards. Selected from thousands of nominees, the win highlights the remarkable impact they have on shaping the lives of the young people in their care.


Lucille Martin, Headteacher says: Rebekah and Julie have been our dedicated Early Years Team at St Pancras for over a decade now.  Our EYFS team does not just teach; they nurture. They understand that every child is unique, with their own strengths, challenges, and dreams. They create safe and nurturing environments where children feel valued, encouraged, and empowered to explore, experiment, and learn at their own pace.  Their relentless enthusiasm and energy would leave most people exhausted but Rebekah and Julie thrive on seeing the day to day development and progress of the children.  They exude joy and our children come skipping into school ready for their day. You could not ask for a better Early Years team and we are thrilled that they have named as Silver Award winners."


Rebekah Aldous and Julie Iannelli are two of 102 deserving teachers, lecturers, leaders, support staff and institutions  named as silver winners in this year’s awards. They will now be in the running for the coveted Gold Award, which will be announced at a prestigious awards ceremony later in the year.


The announcement comes as celebrities, students and schools across the UK are today paying tribute to all those who work in education to mark National Thank a Teacher Day, which celebrates the whole education community and shines a light on the exceptional impact they have on shaping young lives.


National Thank a Teacher Day and the Pearson National Teaching Awards are run by the Teaching Awards Trust, an independent charity established over 25 years ago to celebrate the transformative impact of education, shining a spotlight on the pivotal roles teachers, support staff, colleges, schools and early years educators play in inspiring young people, every single day.
