Nancy Clunie
  • The Award for Lifetime Achievement
  • Dalmarnock Primary School
  • Glasgow

One of a kind, Nancy Clunie successfully broke down boundaries to ensure the East End of Glasgow gets the support it deserves. As headteacher, Nancy has made Dalmarnock Primary School a valued local resource for all in the community, raising the quality of education as well as aspirations and achievements. She is renowned for going to any length to make things better for others, always investing in her own learning to find new ways to help the community. Through supportive school initiatives and a passion for helping those disadvantaged, Nancy has been able to engage and promote diversity and inclusivity at Dalmarnock Primary. The school’s pilot summer holiday food programme was so successful that it led to multi-million pound council funding to develop and expand the support elsewhere.
