Bill Charnley named as Pearson National Teaching Silver Award Winner:

On the 26 May, Bill Charnley, a School Counsellor, and volunteer at St Joseph’s RC High School was named as one of 80 Pearson National Teaching Award Silver Award winners across the country. Bill is honoured with a Silver Award in the Award for Unsung Hero for their outstanding commitment to changing the lives of the children they work with every day.
Bill has volunteered for over 40 years at St Joseph’s to support the pupils and staff. This has taken many forms, from football referee and governor to school counsellor. He has supported hundreds of pupils through some of the most traumatic times in their lives. He has fostered and adopted children through his work in social care and he continues to support past pupils to this day, well into his eighties. As one local Headteacher of another school said, ‘I think every school could do with a Bill Charnley’. The school receives a continuous multitude of comments on its Facebook page about Bill and the impact he has had.
As a Silver Award winner, Bill has now been shortlisted to win one of just 16 Gold Awards later in the year. These once in a lifetime achievements will be broadcast on the BBC’s The One Show as part of a week-long celebration of teaching, which sees famous faces honour award winners every night in the run up to the ceremony. This is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the exceptional school staff who have worked wonders to bring together their local communities despite the challenges of the past few years.
The Silver Award winners are being honoured as part of the wider celebrations for national ‘Thank a Teacher Day’, bringing together everyone across the country to celebrate the schools and colleges at the heart of our communities.
The Pearson National Teaching Awards is an annual celebration of excellence in education, founded in 1998 by Lord Puttnam to recognise the life-changing impact an inspirational teacher can have on the lives of the young people they work with. This year marks its 23rd year of celebrating our school teaching staff across the UK.
Sharon Hague, Managing Director of Schools at Pearson UK, said:
“Congratulations to today’s Silver Award winners on their incredible achievement, they should all feel very proud of themselves. And thank you to all the incredible educators and support staff across this country who really do make our schools and colleges so special. I am delighted that we can take this opportunity to say how much we appreciate all that you do for us.”
Education Secretary Nadhim Zahawi said:
“Congratulations to Bill Charnley on this incredible achievement, and for the hard work and dedication which led up to it. Winning this award is impressive, well-deserved and shows Bill’s commitment to helping students achieve their full potential.”
