Schools urged to enter awards

Have your say

SCHOOLS and colleges in South Yorkshire are being encouraged to enter annual awards organised by national charity Epilepsy Action.

The Edwards Awards aim to recognise educational establishments which are providing a supportive learning environment for pupils with epilepsy.

Stacey Rennard, campaigns manager at Epilepsy Action, said: “We want to reward those establishments we believe are going that extra mile to make sure pupils or students with epilepsy have a good learning experience.

“It could be training all members of staff, holding an assembly to tackle any myths, or having a buddy system to support pupils with epilepsy.”
