National education press coverage for primary school clients

We have close links with editors in education media outlets and are regularly asked to produce features or provide school case studies for their pages.

With more than 20 years’ experience in journalism – from editing daily newspapers to writing for national magazines – we are able to produce professional content quickly to any brief or deadline.

Here are just a couple of the most recent articles in national education magazine Teach Primary which we were asked to provide…

Hillyfield Primary Academy – Teach Primary

Monkwick Infant School – Teach Primary

Communicating with parents and staff through news magazines

One of the products we produce that we are very proud of is the school news magazine.

Sigma News

Our magazines bring together news from throughout a term from within our schools and give our clients a way of sharing lots of positive stories with their parents, staff and community.

We handle the whole process, from gathering information for the news articles, collecting photos and writing the articles to designing the magazine pages, printing copies and delivering them direct to our clients.

The only time our clients need to get involved is to give any guidance over stories they may want included and approving the completed magazine before it goes off to print.

For our clients, it is a simple, pain-free process. They are happy in the knowledge they will receive a quality, professional publication to communicate their news, achievements and human interest stories.

This year, with Covid-19 seeing the partial closure of all schools, we provided the option of having our magazines produced digitally, to be emailed out to parents.

Take a look at just some of the magazines produced by us and distributed to parents over the last few months…

The Hilly High – Hillyfield Primary Academy

Latitude – BMAT

Sigma News – The Sigma Trust

Spotlight – Maltings Academy / New Rickstones Academy / Witham Sixth Forms

Providing PR services to multi-academy trust

As the most memorable school year came to a close, we continued to promote our multi-academy trust client BMAT through the media.

Our journalist works with the primary and secondary schools in Harlow, Epping and Stansted in Essex and Newham in London which make up the Trust to secure positive publicity in the local, regional and education press.

In July, we secured national publicity for Sir Frederick Gibberd College, in Harlow, on online education website Teachwire

Vital local press for client schools

School funds are allocated by numbers of pupils. Pupil numbers grow and are sustained by a school having a positive reputation. A positive reputation comes, in part, from positive publicity in the local media.

That is where KLC steps in.

We work with lots of school clients in Essex and London to secure positive publicity in their local publications to ensure their pupil numbers continue to grow.

Our journalist is in regular contact with our client schools to gather, write and distribute positive news articles to our contacts in the local and regional media outlets, from newspapers and radio channels to news websites.

Take a look at just some of the publicity we have secured for our client schools recently…

National publicity for client school

Just before lockdown hit, we arranged to have a national education journalist visit one of our client schools.

New Rickstones Academy, in Witham, Essex, has been on a rapid journey of improvement in recent years, going from hugely undersubscribed to an Ofsted-rated Good school.

We were keen for our client to be given the opportunity to tell the story of its transformation and so invited the editor of Teach Secondary magazine and journalist from Teachwire news site to meet the head and have a tour.

Take a look at the article here…Teachwire
