THE INFLUENCE OF A GOOD TEACHER CAN NEVER BE ERASED
In this last year, like many people, staff in schools have had to learn to work in a completely different way. Often, this is at incredibly short notice and is well outside of our comfort zone, and before we have even worked out one way of working, we are told to change it to something different again.
Teachers and support staff are people too. We get worried and scared, we have families and elderly relatives and we feel hurt when we are criticised. I know that we sometimes make mistakes and that we aren’t perfect and we’re happy for you to point this out to us, so that we can do it better next time but our challenge to you is not to use this as an easy way to have a dig but instead, to recognise and celebrate some of the wonderful work that our staff are doing.
So here’s what you can do:
1. Email the Principal, Mrs Allott, and let her know and she will pass this on to the member of staff concerned (‘Contact us’ via the website or firstname.lastname@example.org).
2. Email the member of staff from your child’s account to let them know how much you appreciate them.
3. Comment on our Twitter feed: @OutwoodFreeston
4. Let Ofsted or our government know what a great job school staff are doing in these almost impossible conditions.
For just 2 mins of your time, you will make someone’s day.
