Reach for the STARs with Shine!

Introducing our new Schools’ Award Programme... 

What is Shine's STAR School Award?

Shine's STAR School Award is a FREE recognition programme designed to improve SEND provision in which all children with Hydrocephalus and / or Spina Bifida can achieve to the best of their potential. The award highlights exceptional teaching, innovative programs, strong community involvement, and a commitment to pupil success. 

To help schools create a supportive and inclusive environment which can enable every child to have the opportunity to achieve their full potential in education and beyond, we have created Shine’s STAR Award (Support, Training, Awareness and Recognition).

Why apply for Shine’s STAR School Award?

Hydrocephalus and Spina Bifida are lifelong conditions that can affect a child’s school life in many ways. From physical changes that can make moving around more difficult, to less visible impacts on learning or behaviour, each child living with Hydrocephalus and/or Spina Bifida is unique, with their own strengths and challenges.

Understanding these strengths and challenges is key to ensuring children make the most of those crucial school years, and truly thrive. 

Using our knowledge and expertise, accompanied by our vast library of resources and information, our Education team works with teachers, parents and children to ensure the best possible support is offered to children, addressing their changing needs at different stages of their education.

  • Support: FREE ongoing support for any pupil with Hydrocephalus and / or Spina Bifida within your school
  • Training:  To help teachers to assess, understand and respond to the specific needs of children with Hydrocephalus and / or Spina Bifida
  • Awareness: Will help you to build a strong SEND culture throughout your school
  • Recognition: Visual way to demonstrate a whole school commitment to enabling children to achieve their potential

The programme is offered FREE to schools and you will get support throughout the process to help you complete the 7 commitments.
