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…

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

We also promoted Forest Hall School, in Stansted, on Heart FM radio…

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.

National publicity for multi-academy trust

We work closely with education publication editors who regularly turn to KLC to provide features focusing on our school clients.

So, when we were approached by Teachwire – the online publication which supplies resources, news, products and comment from the world of education – to produce some content around the school closures due to the Coronavirus outbreak, we were happy to oblige.

We turned to our client The Sigma Trust, which looks after 12 primary and secondary schools in north Essex.

Our journalist – Kelly Clark – spoke with heads at the four primaries within the Trust, as well as the CEO, to bring together a 2,000-word feature.

We have also promoted the Trust’s schools in the past by arranging for their teachers to write mock lesson plans to appear in national magazine, Teach Secondary

Providing PR services to multi-academy trust

As schools continue to provide home learning for the majority of their students during the Coronavirus outbreak, our work to promote them positively in the media carries on in the new remote way, too.

Instead of our journalist visiting our client schools within BMAT Education each week, our work to gather positive news stories continues via telephone, email and video call during the crisis.

We are regularly securing positive publicity for the primary and secondary schools in Harlow, Epping and Stansted in Essex and Newham in London which make up BMAT.

National publicity for client’s journey of improvement

We work closely with lots of publication editors who regularly approach us to find case studies to fit their feature briefs.

We were recently asked by the editor of Teach Secondary, the national education magazine, to recommend a school they could visit to write a report on.

Our journalist took the editor to client school New Rickstones Academy, in Witham, Essex, where an impressive journey of improvement has taken place.

The visit resulted in some wonderful national publicity for our client, both in print in the magazine which is delivered to every school in the country and online.

Of course, March 2020 will forever be known as the time when the Coronavirus pandemic struck.

And, the virus kept our journalist extremely busy during March (and into April…). But, we also managed to secure our client BMAT Education plenty of publicity before the country’s schools went into shutdown.

BMAT has primary and secondary schools in Harlow, Epping and Stansted in Essex and in Newham, London. Our journalist visits the schools each week to find positive news articles to write and share with the local, regional, national and education media.

Providing PR services to multi-academy trust

What a bumper news month February was for our client BMAT Education.

We produced and shared a huge number of positive news articles with the local, national and education media throughout the month.

Our journalist spends two days each week touring around the Trust’s primary and secondary schools in Harlow, Epping and Stansted in Essex and Newham in London to gather, write and distribute positive news articles.

The articles are not only used as press releases, but they are used to keep our client’s websites and social media channels populated with current content.

We were also asked by Teach Secondary, the national education magazine, to provide a feature for their February issue; an opportunity we took to our BMAT school Sir Frederick Gibberd College, in Harlow.

GCSE results day – PR, web content and social media

GCSE results day is, without doubt, the busiest day in our calendar.

Working with many schools, we spend the weeks and days leading up to this important time ensuring our clients know exactly what we need from them and when so we get the very best possible publicity for them.

We collect the headline figures and quotes from our headteachers to release first thing on GCSE results day. Our journalists then spend the entire day meeting and interviewing students as they collect their results, picking up the very best human interest stories to help promote our client schools.

Take a look at the publicity we secured from GCSE results day this summer, including front page and page 3 coverage for client school BMAT STEM Academy
