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.
