Photo a Day July: Day 18 – Holidays

School holidaysToday’s photo is dedicated to the many teachers I know and the many more I don’t. Congratulations! Not just on making it through another year. Not just for surviving another year of targets, deadlines, OFSTED, mistrust and forever changing government policies. But mostly for making a positive difference to the development of the millions of children you are there for day in and day out.

This is the gates of the school by my house, locked after the final day of term. As a teacher myself (allbeit on a career break) I know full well that those gates won’t stay locked for the next six weeks and teachers will be coming and going throughout that time, still working in their own time throughout the holidays. But I would like to wish all teachers a good rest as well. You deserve it.
