Enter the Heroes Stamp Design Competition—a message from Royal Mail...
Honouring the heroes of the coronavirus pandemic... on stamps
Our school is delighted to be taking part in Royal Mail’s Heroes Stamp Design Competition, honouring the heroes of the coronavirus pandemic. Eight pupils from primary and secondary schools across the UK will become the designers of this stamp set, and one could be your child!
We are asking our young designers to think about who their hero or heroes are, and to then design a stamp in their honour. A special panel of judges will pick the winning designs. The final eight stamps will be sent to Her Majesty The Queen before they can be printed and issued.

Entry templates have been sent home along with instructions and guidelines with your child. If they would like to take part please can their completed entry be sent back to school by 9.00am on Monday 24th May as we will be sending these off to Royal Mail to be received before the official deadline of Friday 28th May.
NHS Charities Together are publishing a book called “Thank you NHS” to raise funds for the NHS. They are inviting schools around the UK to participate to raise funds by either writing a poem or drawing a picture for our NHS. They will publish 250 drawings and 250 poems inside the book. 500 winning entries will be published inside the book with the child's name, age and school. The book will be on sale later this year and 50% of the proceeds will go to the NHS.
The Best Drawing will feature on the cover of the book and the Best Poem will win £50 to spend online at Booksaboutwho.com
If your child would like to participate, please send their entry into school with a minimum donation of £1 before 21st May 2021. Entries should be on A4 paper, if your child would like to hand in an poem and a drawing then please ensure that £2 is handed in.
All entries and entry money will be forwarded to the charity and the UK school who raises the most money will be awarded school funding for books.
