NSN Director, Unity Howard, pays tribute to school staff at the end of a challenging year.
"The term ‘unprecedented year’ has been bandied around throughout 2020, so much so that it has lost meaning – but it really is true. The challenges schools have faced and tackled head on throughout the year, and particularly this term have been significant.
"This country owes a huge amount of gratitude to teachers, leaders, governors, support staff and others for all that they have done, as schools have done everything they can to keep children safe and learning. They have gone above and beyond, proving once again their role as a pillar of society and community.
"As we reach the end of term, I want to say a huge thank you from the bottom of my heart to all those working in education. I hope you will all be able to enjoy a very well-deserved break over the coming weeks."
