People in every community across Britain are facing the challenges of the coronavirus outbreak in some way – from missing contact with loved ones to needing basic provisions or help while they are unwell.
As at so many times in our past, the determination and skill of ‘ordinary’ people is achieving extraordinary results. Millions of pounds have been raised in response to charitable appeals supporting the ill, elderly and vulnerable. As a nation, we are showing our thanks by applauding NHS staff from our doorways or windows on Thursday evenings. Neighbourhoods are uniting to find new ways to stay connected and sustain each other.

The Stars of Hope campaign, launched by Star Academies, has captured the spirit of the nation.

Pupils in Star primary and secondary schools have created art and poetry to give thanks to those supporting us and to share inspirational messages at this time of uncertainty.

Staff in our schools and Central office led the trust’s civic response to the coronavirus pandemic. The Stars of Hope award gives thanks to the many staff who have made an exceptional contribution during this time of crisis.

GIVING THANKS THROUGH ART

We have so many people to thank for helping us stay safe during the coronavirus crisis.  In the Stars of Hope Art Gallery, you will find thought-provoking art created by pupils in Star primary schools to give thanks to all the key workers who keep the country functioning through these unprecedented times.

RESTORING HOPE THROUGH POETRY

Throughout history, individuals and communities have faced adversity and responded with courage. The Stars of Hope poetry anthology is a collection of stimulating poems, written by pupils in Star secondary schools, that draw on our history and carry messages of hope and optimism during this difficult time.

Stars of Hope Award

Star Academies made five pledges to ensure that no member of the Star family suffers unnecessarily as the result of the coronavirus pandemic. From the establishment of Star Family Hubs providing everyday food and hygiene essentials to our communities to our national parenting helpline and reopening schools toolkit, staff within Star have worked tirelessly and selflessly going the extra mile to ensure that our pledges were delivered.

The Stars of Hope award recognises staff who have made an exceptional contribution during the coronavirus pandemic.
