Britain’s Classroom Heroes 2019

Dear Parents

The BBC is coming to film at East Barnet School this Thursday 19th October, 2019.

It’s for ‘Britain’s Classroom Heroes 2019’ and will be broadcast on BBC Two on Saturday 26th October and made available on the BBC iPlayer afterwards. Extracts of the programme may also be shown on other BBC channels or services after the event.

‘Britain’s Classroom Heroes’ – previously known as the Teaching Awards – is an annual awards ceremony which celebrates the teaching profession. It was founded in 1999 and the BBC has televised the national ceremony for the past 20 years. As part of the programme films are made with some of the silver award winners.

Filming will be throughout the school but will concentrate on Mr Sadler who has been nominated for the ‘Outstanding Use of Technology in Education’ teaching award. It will include general shots of pupils arriving and leaving school, pupils at break time, lunch time and in the playground, pupils in assembly and different classroom situations.

We ask kindly that our visit is not mentioned on any social media platforms until after the award ceremony on Sunday 20th October 2019.

If you DO NOT give permission for your child to be filmed, please email the school at before the above filming date.

Many thanks for your co-operation

Kind Regards

The British Broadcasting Corporation
