UK BLOG Awards 2017

 Russell Scott Primary School was the only UK primary school to be nominated to the blogging equivalent of the Oscars!

Held at the Westminster Park Plaza, London and sponsored by Odeon Cinemas this was a huge and prestigious event reflecting the meteoric rise of blogging, vlogging and podcasting across the UK and the world in influencing modern life and developing the digital landscape.

From Jamie Oliver and English Heritage to Bodleian Libraries and Teacher Toolkit ranked the 30th most influential blog in the world, Russell Scott Primary was in esteemed company!

Russell Scott a Primary School in Denton, Tameside was recognised for its passion in enhancing pupils learning through technology, its innovative use of IT, offer of free Continued Professional Development and its fantastic and ground breaking use of parental engagement. This is reflected in the Russell Scott Bedtime story via the school reading blog that enables children and parents to listen to an audio recording of a member of school staff reading a story each week.

Although we didn’t win an overall award just to be there representing a primary school at this national and highly impressive event, rubbing shoulders with some of the world’s most influential entrepreneurs and creators of digital content was an honour in itself.
