PARENTS and governors have gifted hampers to Inkberrow Primary School staff as a way of thanking them for their efforts during the pandemic.
The group wanted to acknowledge and reward teachers for their willingness to adapt in the developing situation.
Chairman of governors Noel Fowler said: “I am upset about the way in which the media and some politicians have treated those working in school in stark contrast to those in the health and social care services.
“The fact is that schools have not closed, ours has been open every day for key-worker children, including during Easter and half-term breaks.
“In addition, staff have been providing detailed support to parents working with their children at home.”
Glenn Duggan, headteacher at Inkberrow Primary, said: “Over the past ten weeks, all teachers and staff have gone above and beyond to ensure our children at Inkberrow have continued to have access to their teacher and to their learning. I am very proud of all of them.”
The hampers contained fruit scones, strawberry jam and cream, as well as scotch eggs and sausage rolls.
The project was arranged through the Friends of Inkberrow Primary School and included donations from individual governors.
