Any win­ners at your child’s school?

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

If your child has been helped by an ex­tra­or­di­nary teacher, why not nom­i­nate them for a Teacher of the Year award?

Nom­i­na­tions are open un­til March 1 and can­di­dates will be judged and awarded in May.

Or­gan­iser Si­mon Dolby said: “Ash­ford par­ents need to rep­re­sent the dis­trict by vot­ing in th­ese awards. I’m sure staff and vol­un­teers at your child’s school work hard all year round for each and ev­ery pupil.

“There­fore it would be won­der­ful if you and other par­ents you know would con­sider nom­i­nat­ing those staff and vol­un­teers who make a stand-out con­tri­bu­tion.

“This is a huge en­cour­age­ment to all nom­i­nees, and a big pub­lic pat-on-the-back for win­ners and their schools.”

The main cat­e­gories in­clude: pri­mary, sec­ondary, newly qual­i­fied teacher, non­teach­ing mem­ber of staff (in­clud­ing din­ner ladies and care­tak­ers), and a vol­un­teer award in­clud­ing mem­bers of the PTA, gover­nors and other vol­un­tary roles (for ex­am­ple, read­ing sup­port­ers and those who sup­port ex­tra-cur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties).

A panel of in­de­pen­dent judges will de­cide the win­ners in each cat­e­gory and the win­ners will be an­nounced in May.

You only have un­til March 1 to nom­i­nate. So go to www.kent­teacheroftheyear. co.uk and fill in the online nom­i­na­tion form.
