PE teach­ers in the run­ning for award af­ter help­ing trainees

Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

TWO TEACH­ERS have been nom­i­nated for awards for their work as men­tors for trainees.

PE teach­ers Dave Fitzsim­mons and Lucy Rim­mer at Tyther­ing­ton School have both been nom­i­nated for the Liver­pool John Moores Univer­sity ‘Sub­ject Men­tor of the Year’ award for their work sup­port­ing trainee teach­ers in the PE depart­ment this year.

They were nom­i­nated by the cur­rent PE trainees An­to­nio Spinola and Andy Hen­shall.

Head­teacher Manny Botwe said: “The nom­i­na­tion recog­nises the hard work Mr Fitzsim­mons and Mrs Rim­mer have put into sup­port­ing trainees by help­ing to plan lessons, pro­vid­ing feed­back from ob­ser­va­tions and giv­ing much needed moral sup­port.

“Mr Spinola and Mr Hen­shall, our PE trainees, have both been very com­pli­men­tary about the qual­ity of train­ing and sup­port they have re­ceived through­out the year.

“In his end of year eval­u­a­tion, Mr Spinola thanked the depart­ment for their ad­vice, guid­ance and timely and ef­fec­tive sup­port, and praised the PE depart­ment’s friendly, wel­com­ing and sup­port­ive at­mos­phere and highly knowl­edge­able men­tors.

“Con­grat­u­la­tions to Mr Fitzsim­mons and Mrs Rim­mer, who have given our trainees the best pos­si­ble start to their ca­reers. The awards cer­e­mony takes place later this term. It’s great that they get the recog­ni­tion they de­serve.”
