Christmas Card Competition Winners 2017

This year, we asked primary schools across the UK that are benefiting from the de Poel education model and our local schools, to get creative and design our company Christmas e-card.

Congratulations to Lewis, age 6, from Locking Stumps Primary School in Warrington, who has won the competition, and will receive £50 in National Book Tokens, a Cadbury Selection Pack, Christmas Bauble and a printed pack of Christmas Cards featuring his own design.

The winning school, Locking Stumps, will also receive £500 in cash, or the equivalent value in National Book Tokens for their library.

Thank you to all schools who took part this year. The competition has been a huge success, with more entries received than ever before.



Lewis, age 6, Locking Stumps Primary School

About Us

As the leading procurer of temporary cover in the UK, we help schools to fulfil their safeguarding obligations by ensuring they have the very best supply teachers in place at the right time.

We understand that budgets are tight, so we look to reduce the cost of temporary staffing by bridging the gap between supply teachers and the agencies which supply them.

As well as leading positions on public sector procurement frameworks, de Poel education has been chosen to manage the supply worker requirements of many schools, academies and colleges.
