Liberton Primary, Edinburgh. School suffered a fire in Feb 2020, just as everyone was getting settled, distributed around different local schools, lockdown hit. The whole staff team is awesome.
I would like to nominate my teacher Mr Willets from Shebbear College. Mr Willetts has been our rock, he has been there for all of us in our class, no matter how small or big the problems have been. He is very patient especially when it comes to our science projects as they often end up in huge messes. He alway encourages us to do the best we can and have fun doing it. Mr Willetts is the most caring teacher I have met.
Alexis Morley says:
Mr. Wallace and Mrs Plow at St Fagans primary, Cardiff, for working so hard throughout the last year, and helping the children settle back in with lots of fun, interesting activities and care.
Michelle Parkin-Kelly says:
Chorlton Park Primary in Manchester have been so supportive. From providing resources for child mental health, to supplementing the government’s meagre school meal delivery with fresh, healthy produce, the staff and teachers have really come through for the community and the children. Mrs Habershon is the Head of EYFS and KS1 and her online assemblies were inspiring to the parents as much as the kids!
Emma Gorton says:
Mrs Skelly-Regis at St Michael’s Junior school in Aldershot. It has been a tricky year and the teachers have had so much to deal with but nothing is ever too much for her. She is so kind, caring and helpful and always has ideas of how to help your child if they are struggling etc.

Mrs Bowen and Mrs Thomas from Westways Primary School in Sheffield.
Tesla’s teachers have supported her in such a kind, caring and personal way throughout the pandemic. They have made her feel listened to and important despite having so many other children to look out for and we couldn’t be happier with the support we have received as parents too.

Whaley Bridge Primary School. They checked in on how the children were feeling and tried to make the lessons as fun as possible.

Michelle Thomas says:
I would like to nominate Dulwich Wood Primary School in London. Unfortunately during the pandemic, especially in lockdown I had to have a major operation. What the teachers don’t realise is that all their zoom lessons kept me and my daughter from great despair. The teachers made their lessons fun and exciting that for those few hours I managed to forget I was in pain. The school ha such a lovely warm fun environment for learning and the teachers are superb. Thank you Dulwich wood!!!

Holly Ellen says:
I would like to nominate Parkside Primary School in Heathfield. They have worked so hard making sure the children had access to school lessons and supplies during the pandemic. They worked all hours of the day (they were marking work at midnight!) and always had the childrens interests at heart. My daughter is quite behind with her reading and writing and the pandemic really did set her back more, but her teacher has done so much to offer encouragement and show my daughters worth and there are no words to show how grateful we all are.

Alison B says:
I would like to nominate Christ Church Primary School in Cheltenham. All the teachers have gone above and beyond the call of duty, marking all work every day and providing motivating feedback, sourcing fantastic digital content to keep everyone engaged. One teacher wrote a book through lockdown sharing chapters with his class, others have made films with the kids and used their own time to edit and share. They have been brilliant. CCPS is a small school and buying tech like this is not in their budget range, so this would be fantastic!
Rosemary Bird-Hawkins says:
The TAs at Stoborough Primary School who all really stepped up and went above and beyond to care for and educate those key worker children still in school during lockdown in January. Also, the teachers at Stoborough Primary School who worked tirelessly on the remote learning systems picking up new skills and not only setting lessons but providing feedback to every single child. They are all amazing.
