Celebrate our schools, colleges, teachers and support staff on the annual National Thank a Teacher Day 2022. 

The Thank a Teacher Campaign is run by The Teaching Awards Trust which was established in 1998 by Lord David Puttnam CBE, to celebrate and recognise excellence in education.

The charity’s mission is to raise the profile of the teaching profession, highlight the positive impact teachers and school leaders have in our society – with pupils, parents and the wider community, and show teachers how much they are valued.

You can find out more about this initiative, download free resources and enter competitions to win £100 in vouchers for your school at thankateacher.co.uk.

You can also download lesson plans, printable thank you cards to colour and ideas for school assembly.

We have gathered together a collection of books that feature an inspiring and supportive teacher or school staff member.

From dazzling Mr Suarez in Planet Joy, angelic Miss Honey in Matilda and motivating mentor Coach in Jason Reynold's Run series, these books celebrate the positive influence and life-changing impact that a great teacher brings.
