In celebration of ‘National Thank a Teacher Day’ (June 19), Arthur Terry Learning Partnership CEO Richard Gill CBE, has expressed his incredible pride towards his “dedicated and caring” colleagues.

‘National Thank a Teacher Day’ recognises the incredible dedication and hard work of the country’s education community, celebrating the outstanding teachers, support staff, teaching assistants, dinner helpers, volunteers, and everyone who plays a crucial role in making schools, early years settings and colleges thrive.

The Arthur Terry Learning Partnership is a multi-academy trust of 24 schools, which includes an all-through Alternative Provision setting, and one teaching school hub, with an outstanding initial teacher training (ITT) provider training the next generation of teachers.

Richard Gill CBE, CEO of the ATLP (pictured at the Partnership’s Paget Primary School), said:

“I am incredibly proud of our amazing team at the ATLP and would like to thank all our staff and volunteers for the valuable contribution they make to the lives of our children, young people and learning communities.

“It is an honour and a privilege to work alongside such dedicated and caring professionals who exemplify our ‘One Trust’ values of being stronger together and putting children at the heart of all we do. They strive to give our students the best opportunities and experiences, and our family of schools are better places because of my wonderful colleagues.

“On this ‘Thank a Teacher Day’, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to school staff everywhere. It’s so rewarding being part of a community of likeminded individuals who care so passionately about education and who demonstrate their commitment and love each and every day.”
