If your school has undertaken an unusual event, achieved something remarkable, or done anything that you deem to be newsworthy, you can submit the story for inclusion on the on-line service: UK Education News.
What's more, the story will remain on the UK Education News website, so this is not just a short term piece of publicity. Every time someone searches on the internet for a school in your area and uses any of the words contained in your article, that story will come up and you have a further chance of being read.
To submit a story - and I reiterate everything about this service is free - just follow this route...
1. Please do take a look at www.UkEducationNews.co.uk
and click on one or two stories so that you can see how the system works. At the moment you won't find many stories submitted by schools because this is the first announcement of the free offer, but we are hoping to run two or three a day from now on.
2. Write out your story as a press release in Word. You can have a link to your school website in the piece, but you must write this link out in full in the text (don't embed it within the text). There is no limit to the length, but you cannot include pictures - only text.
3. Don't forget to give us a headline as this is what will appear on www.UkEducationNews.co.uk
4. Send the announcement to firstname.lastname@example.org
as an attached Word file. On the subject line please write SWGfL School News
. The article will appear within a couple of days. We can't send you a notification of when it appears, but stories stay on the site for two or three days normally.
