Thank a Teacher Day 28th May 2020

Children sent in videos and drawings for their teachers, explaining their reasons for thanking them.  Reasons ranged from ‘because you are the best teacher in the whole universe’, to ‘because my parents are rubbish at teaching’ and everything in between!

Head Teacher, Kay Goldsworthy, said “We were thrilled to be inundated with videos and pictures of thanks and we loved them all.  It’s no secret that remote learning has involved a huge amount of work for teachers, as well as the planning for the reopening of schools on 1st June, so the timing of National Thank a Teacher Day was perfect.  It gave us all a real boost.  Teaching is always about the children and seeing them all in photos and videos was wonderful.  This is just another example of how St Ives is staying ‘Together Whilst Apart.’

‘Together Whilst Apart’ is the school’s temporary motto, being used whilst the school is closed, and is forming a key role in all their planning – whether it is academic work, extra-curricular activities or pastoral care.   

To find out more about how St Ives School is working “Together Whilst Apart” please see for more information.  Skype calls can be arranged with Mrs Goldsworthy for anyone interested in joining the school and finding out more.
