Centre for Literacy in Primary Poetry Award

The CLiPPA (Centre for Literacy in Primary Poetry Award) is the only award for published poetry for children in the UK. Established in 2003, the annual Poetry Award encourages and celebrates outstanding poetry published for children. Alongside the CLiPPA to promote the teaching of poetry in schools, we run a Schools Shadowing Scheme.

Poet Philip Gross, chair of the CLiPPA judges, said “Stars with Flaming Tails is like a passport to the whole world, and beyond. This is poetry that can go anywhere, from the personal to the planetary, the surreal to the scientific, with its invitation to us all to look, and to laugh, to listen to our feelings, and to think. And meanwhile, almost without noticing it, we’re being handed the keys to the craft of writing for ourselves.”

When the shortlisted collections are announced, our team of expert teachers write detailed planning linked to each collection which focuses on the appreciation, performance, response to and writing of poetry. Schools can register to take part in the shadowing scheme and receive updates and links to the materials when they are released.
