Council thanks school teachers and staff for their continued hard work

Posted on:

Our lead Councillor responsible for schools has wished all Devon teachers and teaching assistants season’s greetings, thanking them for their continued hard work and effort throughout 2022.

Councillor Andrew Leadbetter, Cabinet Member for education and learning, said:

“As we reach the end of the term I would like to thank everyone one of our amazing teachers, teaching assistants and staff for their hard work and dedication.

“This year has been another difficult one, post-coronavirus to a large extent and yet the virus is still ever-present.

“We’re now also seeing some of the common and less common winter illnesses impacting on pupils and staff alike.

“I know how hard all of our schools are working to keep pupils in the classroom and learning, despite staff being absent due to illness.

“So, thank you. I very much look forward to the new year and working alongside and in support of our schools to meet new challenges of 2023.”
