Poetry Competition

Please contact:
Stephen Davies on poetrycompetition@satips.org


We are pleased to announce the return of this popular competition! It is aimed to complement and support the excellent teaching of poetry that goes in the regular curriculum and is a chance for you and your pupils to be rewarded for work you are already doing. We hope to produce an anthology of the winning poems in due course.

Teachers are free to use any subject, theme or style. However, for those who would prefer a subject, poems are available from this year’s guest judge, David Caddy, to act as a stimulus.

The competition is open to SATIPS members only so if your school is not a member or you are unsure, please email membership@satips.org

National Handwriting Competition 2018

National Handwriting Competition 2018


To enter, children should copy out the poem for their relevant class in their best and neatest handwriting on a piece of A4 paper (the paper can have faint lines which do not detract from the handwriting; paper can be portrait or landscape). Children aged 8 and under may use a pencil if they prefer.


Four of the five classes in the competition are asked to write out a set poem for their entry; children aged from 11–13 can choose their own poem if they wish or write out the poem for Class D.


Further details are on the National Handwriting Competition website www.handwritingcompetition.co.uk and from the organiser Paul Jackson eajackson22@hotmail.com
