The Silver Award winners are being honoured as part of the wider celebrations for national ?hank a Teacher Day? bringing together everyone across the country to celebrate the schools and colleges at the heart of our communities.

The Pearson National Teaching Awards is an annual celebration of excellence in education, founded in 1998 by Lord Puttnam to recognise the life-changing impact an inspirational teacher can have on the lives of the young people they work with.

?ongratulations to St Mary's CE Primary School on this incredible achievement, and for the hard work and dedication which led up to it. Winning this award is impressive, well-deserved and shows St Mary's CE Primary School? commitment to helping students achieve their full potential.?
Michael Morpurgo, celebrated author and former Children? Laureate, and President of the Teaching Awards Trust, said:
?or so many of us, it was someone at school who changed our lives, was at our side through hard and difficult times, who lifted us up when we were down, helped us find our voice, gave us confidence when we needed it most, and set us on a path that we have followed ever since.

?o matter who we are, school has touched our lives and played a central role in our childhoods. School is about so much more than learning, and we see that now more than ever before. Schools really are the beating heart of our communities. Every person that cares for our children in schools should be celebrated loud and clear on Thank A Teacher Day 2022.?
