The winning School Superhero will be given a £50 Our Bury St Edmunds giftcard and your school could be also be in for a £250 windfall.

Nominations can be for any school worker including teachers, teaching assistants, catering/lunchtime staff, administration teams, caretakers, coaches or volunteers.

The gift card can be used in any one of 60 different outlets in the town centre.

Mark Cordell, chief executive officer at Our Bury St Edmunds, said: “It takes five minutes to nominate someone in a Bury St Edmunds school, whether that’s a head teacher or teacher, a

sports coach, a teaching assistant or school office staff.

"The difference these people make in our children’s lives shouldn’t be underestimated, supporting families, keeping school safe and making school a positive place to be.

“The prize on offer is fantastic.

The School Superhero could win a £50 Our Bury St Edmunds Gift Card to treat themselves to a meal out, a film or show, or whatever they fancy from our fabulous independent shops and bigger brands.

"There is also so much a school could do with the £250 cash prize, from new books for the library to sports kit.

"I would love to see a School Superhero from Bury St Edmunds being recognised and rewarded for their efforts.”

The Our Bury St Edmunds Gift Card has a partnership with Collection Pot , enabling families to easily collect for school staff digitally, with the collector or recipient able to redeem the sum

with an Our Bury St Edmunds Gift Card, offering a covid-secure way to collect money, and giving the teacher choice in their gift.

Colin Munro, Managing Director of Miconex added that the School Superheroes campaign is a chance to thank school staff and be in with a chance of winning a local prize that supports

the community.

He said: “During the pandemic we’ve seen even more examples of school staff showing extraordinary support to families, from making home learning fun to taking the time to pick up the phone to see how a child is getting on at home.

"The School Superheroes campaign is about saying thank you to people who work in our schools."
