Almost 1,000 pupils being given opportunities to grow in all sorts of ways. Some are hard work, but most aren’t. Pupils who have all sorts of issues facing them before they’ve even left home. Others for whom formal education will never work. Others who just need a little bit of encouragement and then they’ll fly.
I’m proud to be a(n almost) teacher. I think we make a difference.
Dear Mr Gove. Give us a chance. We aren’t a bad bunch.
