Thank a Teacher Day


National Thank a Teacher Day is looking to celebrate your teachers

Teachers are celebrated across the UK every year on National Thank A Teacher Day, which is on 20 May this year.

The Teaching Awards Trust, who run the event, also use this day to announce and celebrate the Silver Winners of the Pearson National Teaching Awards. This year the team are waiting for schools to reopen to all children before it officially announce the winners. In the meantime, however, it is asking everyone across the country to join together to say a HUGE thank you to their teachers for their amazing work not only in these challenging times but all year round.

How can you thank your teacher?

Do you have a STAR teacher? Do you miss seeing them every day? This Thank A Teacher Day let’s take the opportunity to say thank you to all our amazing teachers and support staff, who are doing a star job each and every day.

Share your message of thanks with the Thank a Teacher team before the 20th May, ideally in a video clip, or in an expression of your choosing. The theme this year is a star. How creative can you be? Maybe you and your school will feature as a #StarOfTheDay on social media.

The aim is to get as many messages of thanks and some great stories about the teachers who are being thanked so these can be shared with the whole country on National Thank a Teacher Day on May 20th.

If you upload videos or messages on your own social media pages, please use the hashtags #ThankaTeacherDay #ClassroomHeroes and for Woodley residents please tag us @WoodleyCouncil so we can see the wonderful messages for Woodley teachers.
