This year, National Thank a Teacher Day is on Wednesday 23rd June and the theme is ‘Stars’. All of our National Thank a Teacher Day resources can be found at the bottom of the page.
Emma Knights (National Governance Association) encourages governors to get involved!
Show your appreciation of the hard work that has gone on in schools this year. Write a short message of thanks and we’ll send a free limited edition thank you e-card, specially designed by Gruffalo illustrator Axel Scheffler, to anyone working in a school. So if you know a stand out headteacher or whole school team doing an amazing job, let them know!
‘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.
Simply click the button and we'll send them an email about how your school can get involved in Thank a Teacher Day with a link to our downloadable pack of resources.
Let everyone know about #ThankATeacherDay by sharing our promotional resources on social media, printing off our posters and postcards, and raising awareness in your local schools.
This Thank a Teacher Day, we want the nation to sparkle for their teaching stars! Show off your sparkly outfits, jewellery, glitter and so on with the hashtag #ThankATeacherDay.
