Send a Limited Edition Axel Scheffler 'Thank You'

Show your appreciation of the hard work that has gone on in schools this year.

So if you know a stand out headteacher or whole school team doing an amazing job, let them know!

Read about the Importance of a Thank You

‘It has never been a more pressing time for governors to do their bit and show their appreciation. We are so proud that our staff teams were able to support the schools in a fantastically brave manner. And a little love goes a long way!’

Claire Hannah-Russell is Chair of Governors at a rural primary school, Newtown Soberton Infant School, in Hampshire. In a new blog post, Claire shares the respect and admiration governors have for their school staff and why something as small as sending a ‘Thank a Teacher’ card goes a long way during a challenging year.
