Thank a Teacher Day

'Thank a Teacher Day’ was marked this month, and I would like to pay tribute to teachers across Kenilworth & Southam whose hard work means that more children are gaining the education they need to get on in life.   We should all celebrate the huge difference teachers make to their students’ lives and recognise how their hard work has improved standards in schools across the country.

61 more schools in Warwickshire are now rated good or outstanding than in 2010, whilst 1.9 million more children are attending good or outstanding schools nationally. Higher standards in our schools will transform children’s chances in life, and are impossible without the work of teachers, teaching assistants and support staff.
