A primary school in Sale has won one of this year’s Times Educational Supplement (TES) awards. 

Lime Tree Primary Academy won the ‘SEND Provision in a Mainstream Setting of the Year’ award at an event at The Grosvenor in London. It had also been shortlisted for the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage Setting of The Year’ award. 

The school was praised for its support to SEND students and their families, with Margaret Mulholland, one of the award judges saying: “The unique element of Limetree was not just the very detailed case studies of impact over time, but more than anything the outward-facing role they perform in terms of building partnerships locally to reach both the child and the family and wrap around them, with this notion that it’s not just the child that has got a place at the school, but the family.”

Clare Larkin, head of school at Lime Tree, commented: “We were delighted to have been shortlisted for these coveted awards but to actually win an award is such amazing recognition for the whole Lime Tree family. It really is a team effort here at school and I would like to say a massive thank you to our wonderful students, staff, parents, carers and, of course, the wider community.

“We are truly committed to ensuring all our children are supported with whatever it takes to help them thrive. Through careful nurturing of each child using creativity, innovation, and academic challenge within our school setting, which includes a farm and two Forest School areas, we make this happen. We are so grateful to our local community and partners too who help us to achieve this.”
