Providing PR services to multi-academy trust

We have always been proud of our client schools, but never more so than during the Coronavirus shutdown.

The government’s decision to close schools to all but the children of key worker parents came with just a day or two’s notice for schools, pupils and parents to prepare for a whole new way of life.

We work with many schools to provide positive publicity, including BMAT Education, with primary and secondary schools in Harlow, Epping and Stansted in Essex and Newham in London.

Our journalist visits BMAT schools each week to meet with headteachers, teachers and pupils as we gather news stories to write and release to the media.

With lockdown came a new way of working for us, too, with our regular interviews carried out over the phone or video call instead of in person.

But, it did not stop the positive news stories from flowing.

Take a look at some of the positive publicity we secured for BMAT in April…

We also continue to provide BMAT with a monthly digital publication to keep colleagues informed of the latest news from within the organisation – a tool even more vital during the school closures…

Radio coverage for KLC school client

We work tirelessly each week to earn our school clients positive publicity in the local, regional, national and education media.

So, we were thrilled this week when we secured a 12-minute slot on BBC Essex radio for our client school, Burnt Mill Academy, in Harlow, Essex.

We arranged for the school’s director of performing arts to be interviewed on air, along with the new rap tutor the story was focused on.

The countywide coverage gave our client some fantastic publicity for their unique piece of work.

School spy news hits the airwaves

We’re over-the-moon with yet more great coverage for our article on a school client’s fun summer activities.

We released an article, written by our journalist, on the spy school being run at Maltings Academy, in Witham, Essex, to all local media. The story made a whole page of coverage in the Essex Chronicle newspaper (see earlier post), as well as being used as an item on BBC Essex radio.

Radio air time for school client

Delighted this week to have secured a chunk of radio air time on the popular Dave Monk breakfast show on BBC Essex for one of our school clients.

Burnt Mill Academy, in Harlow, Essex, has launched a course to inspire teenagers to take up a career in teaching.

Our journalist attended a launch meeting at the school, where we provide PR services, and released an article to the media.

The radio station’s producers responded by asking us to provide an interviewee for the show.

A publicity first for school client

We’re absolutely delighted this week to have secured a publicity first for one of our school clients.

We offer PR services to Burnt Mill Academy, in Harlow, Essex, and regularly release positive news articles for them to the local press.

GCSE results day brought our most powerful opportunity to promote the school with them achieving a giant 16 per cent leap in this year’s results, making them top of the town.

The news was so impressive, we managed to secure the school a precious slot on local radio station BBC Essex’s popular Drivetime show.

Our client was delighted with the result. Deputy headteacher Charlie McCarthy said: “Thanks for everything Kelly and for setting up the radio interview. First time we’ve had that sort coverage so really good for the school.”
