Celebrate the Stars in Our Schools

Help UNISON and schools across the UK celebrate the often unsung stars of our children’s education on 25 November

Do you know a star in your local school? Help UNISON, and schools, celebrate our school support staff on 25 November. Anyone can get involved in helping to organise a Stars in Our Schools event.

Last year, hundreds of schools across the country organised events to celebrate a contribution that often goes unseen or unrecognised.

UNISON has 250,000 members in schools and Stars in Our Schools aims to counter that invisibility.

And anyone can get involved: whether you are a parent, or grandparent, a school governor, UNISON activist or a member of school support staff – you can help celebrate the forgotten ‘stars’ in our schools.

Every school can take part: over the past few years, primaries, secondaries, special schools, academies, maintained and faith schools have all been involved.

UNISON organises this nationwide celebration of the hard work by dedicated staff tucked away behind the scenes of our schools – from cleaners to catering staff, teaching and classroom assistants to technicians, admin workers to maintenance staff and many more.

I'm writing to you to talk about Brexit. Just over 200 days until the UK leaves the EU, we're at crisis point.
The Tory government has comprehensively failed to negotiate a Brexit that protects the jobs, rights and livelihoods of working people across the UK.

We don't represent the elite, the establishment or the business owners and bosses.
We stand for ordinary working people, who deserve a chance at a better life. And we need a Brexit that makes that possible.

Today, I want to give the Prime Minister notice that if her deal doesn't deliver for working people, then this country's trade unions will mobilise to win a deal that does.

Watch our Brexit announcement here.

Thank you,
Frances O'Grady

Following a review of the School Uniform Grant programme, it would appear that the number of applications is down on the same period last year.

In order to enable members to apply for the grant and ensure that those who would benefit from it still have an opportunity to apply, we have taken the decision to extend the closing date of the programme from Friday 20 July, to Friday 3 August.

We believe there are many members who would qualify for the assistance which has been increased from £40 to £50 per child (maximum of £150 for 3 children) per application.
