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

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.

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.

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

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…

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.

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.

Providing PR services to multi-academy trust

Christmas is one of the only times our client schools close down properly. Buildings are closed, lessons are put on hold and the whole community gets to relax at home.

So, January is a time to get the ball rolling and our journalist starts to visit our client schools regularly once again to collect their latest positive news stories to share with the media.

We have worked with the BMAT group of primary and secondary schools in Harlow, Epping and Stansted in Essex and Newham in London for many years.

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

Producing news magazines for our clients

At KLC, we are extremely proud of the news magazines we produce for our clients.

Having a background in journalism and editing, we are well placed – with our design and print partner – to quickly and easily produce publications of all sizes and specs.

Throughout the term, we collect news stories from our many school clients which we share with the local, national and education media. To get the maximum use and exposure for the articles, we also produce news magazines which are delivered to parents, employees and stakeholders of our client schools.

The magazines provide a wonderful accompaniment to the traditional school prospectus; with the prospectus providing the facts and figures and the “need to know” information about a school and our magazines sharing the smiling faces and the nitty gritty of what goes on within our schools.

Take a look at just some of the school news magazines we have produced for our clients recently…

The Hilly High for Hillyfield Primary Academy, in Walthamstow…

Sigma News (parent version and staff version) for The Sigma Trust, Essex…

Spotlight for Maltings Academy and New Rickstones Academy, in Witham, Essex…

Trinity Magazine for Trinity Primary Academy, in Wood Green, London…
