Swaffield School

Heroes Stamp Design Competition

We are delighted to be taking part in Royal Mail’s Heroes Stamp Design Competition, honouring the heroes of the coronavirus pandemic.


Here are our fabulous entries celebrating our children's heroes - the NHS, parents, the scientists who created the vaccine, Marcus Rashford, bus drivers, teachers, the police, and everyone who helped us. 


Who will your Covid hero be?

Eight pupils from primary and secondary schools across the UK will become the designers of this stamp set, and one could be your child!

We’re entering the competition for the chance to see our heroes on a stamp!

To take part, you need to design your own stamp to show who your "Covid Hero" is, this could be anyone you think has worked extra hard during the pandemic, such as teachers, cleaners, supermarket workers or doctors and nurses.

Please hand all entries to class teachers by Tuesday 25th May 2021

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said: "The last year has been one of the most difficult any of us can remember, but throughout it all our Covid heroes have been there for us, inspired us and done so much for others. From our family members, teachers, doctors and nurses to our vaccine scientists and fundraisers, we want to recognise and remember them".

Simon Thompson, Royal Mail's chief executive, said: "Over the past year there have been so many wonderful examples of people who, despite much uncertainty and fear, have continued about their work with such admirable determination and pride."

We’ve sent information and entry forms home by email and children can get a printed copy of the entry form from their class teacher.

You can download an entry form here. 


Please give all entries to your class teacher by Tuesday 25th May so that we can submit all Swaffield entries to the competition organizer before the deadline. Royal Mail will announce winners in the autumn.
