A SCHOOL is celebrating after being named runners-up in the Midlands finalist in teaching awards.
The team of staff at Langham Primary School received a distinction in the 2011 Pearson Teaching Awards, equivalent to runners-up.
They were nominated by a parent who wanted to thank staff for their hard work.
Headteacher Janet Lord won the Midlands award in the headteacher category last year.
She said: “We were really pleased to gain this award and to come second against all the other schools in the Midlands was a huge honour.”
To make the occasion really special for all of the staff the award was presented at an assembly by the Bishop of Peterborough.
He spoke very highly about the importance of any staff team and said he could tell that everyone really enjoyed being at Langham by all the exciting and innovative things that were going on.
The awards were launched to focus on inspired education professionals who make the positive achievements of pupils possible.
For this year’s awards there were more than 22,000 nominations across the categories.
