CLPE wins Educational Resources Award for Best Free Resources

We are thrilled to announce that we have won the Education Resources Award (ERA) for our free Poetry Resources for Schools.

"The judges were impressed by the impact the poetry resources had on students and teachers, so clearly evidenced through the testimonials. This is a hugely valuable resource for schools". 

CLPE is the National Poetry Centre for Primary Schools. It has always been part of our charity's purpose to make poetry accessible to teachers, which is why we provide free digital and online resources for teachers working in the Early Years and Primary sector.

This includes:
- Over 500 videos of poet performances and interviews which bring poets into the classroom, immediately engaging children with poetry.

- Poetry lesson plans related to our CLiPPA Shadowing Scheme, based on research into best practice for teaching poetry to support children's developing literacy, designed to support the needs of all children.

- A bank of poems to choose from and use with their children.

The annual awards celebrate outstanding success for the suppliers and teaching professionals of the education sector throughout the UK, these awards are recognised by the teaching profession as the benchmark of excellence, aiming to encourage the raising of educational services and product standards throughout the industry.
