The Teaching Awards were founded twelve years ago by Lord Puttnam CBE to focus on inspired education professionals. 2013 is a record year for the Pearson Teaching Awards with over 24,000 nominations.
Rod Bristow, President of Pearson UK said: ‘Supporting the Pearson Teaching Awards gives us a unique opportunity to champion exceptional teaching professionals across the UK. Pearson has long held lifelong learning to be at the heart of all its business. All young people deserve the very best chance to make progress in their lives through education. That is why we believe it’s vital to recognise inspirational teachers, for their commitment to teaching and learning and improving the life chances of the next generation.’
Two Pearson judges visited the school on Monday this week to interview Ms Walker, colleagues, pupils, parents and ex-parents. The results will be announced by the Pearson Teaching Awards on Thank a Teacher Day, 17th May 2013, and we shall let you know the outcome of the competition then.
