Jack Petchey Winner - Staff Award 2022

Mrs Fouché

This year’s Jack Petchey Staff Leadership Award goes to Mrs Fouché for her hard-work and dedication to the school over the last 19 years. This year, she has taken on the leadership of two faculties, to support the academic outcomes of students. This is what drives her in all that she does; it is her focus and determination to get things right for each and every student in our school. From the moment you meet Mrs Fouché, her passion for education and students is contagious, and this is paramount to her role as a classroom practitioner. She is an outstanding teacher, and what she does not know about teaching is not worth knowing. Her skill and leadership is also used to build excellence across the Trust, where she was selected by the Trust to complete Bridge Academy Trust reviews across other secondary schools.

Mrs Fouché is an exceptional leader, and is this year mentoring new Heads of Departments within her faculty areas to develop the leaders of the future.

We thank her for all that she does for our students and our school.

Jack Petchey Award Scheme

About the Award Scheme

The Jack Petchey Achievement Award Scheme is running in over 1700 schools, colleges and clubs. Established in 1999, it started in East London, but now operates in all London Boroughs and in Essex. The Achievement Award winners are young people who have gone above and beyond to achieve – perhaps when others thought they might fail.

Each award winner will receive a certificate, pin badge and a book from Sir Jack himself. They will also choose how to spend a £300 grant to benefit their chosen area within the school.

All award winners are invited to attend a prestigious ceremony, to be presented with a medallion in front of their families, friends, and VIPs.

It is a scheme to recognise and celebrate the achievements of young people, to help them take advantage of opportunities and to play a full part in society. Grants of over £35 million have been given since the establishment of the Foundation. Over the course of the school year, Notley High School and Braintree Sixth form can make 9 awards to individual students.

It is not about the fastest, the smartest or being the best. The award is designed to recognise outstanding individual achievements. These achievements can include:

  • Helping others over and above expectations
  • Being a good role model/mentor
  • Showing bravery
  • Overcoming a personal challenge
  • Volunteering
  • Trying really hard
  • Breaking through a personal barrier
