Last week we celebrated National Supply Teacher Week here at Smart Teachers.

We understand supply teachers can sometimes not get the credit they deserve for the role they play in children’s education which is why we wanted to take the opportunity to say thank you to our teachers.   We asked some of our schools that use us on a regular basis to tell us about the great supply teachers they have had and here’s what they had to say.

‘Steven is an amazing supply teacher. Within hours of arriving at our school he had assessed the children and was delivering lessons of a high standard. His calm, friendly, helpful manner makes him a pleasure to have on staff. I would recommend Steven to any Head looking for excellent supply cover’.

Head of Junior School, leading independent school, Catford

‘Lucy is a lively and dependable teacher, able and willing to work in any class in our primary school. She is punctual, friendly and very responsible so when we need a supply teacher she is our first choice at Smart Teachers.’

Deputy Head, popular primary school, Highgate

 “Adam was brilliant today! Really proactive in class and so supportive of the class teacher”

Deputy head, primary school, Camden

We really enjoy hearing how great our staff are and how much our schools enjoy having them.  A big THANK YOU to all our teachers for being such great Smart Teachers ambassadors.

Paramount Bar

We also ran a competition for our supply teachers to win dinner for two at Paramount Bar in Soho.  The luck winner was Will Rodbourne; an art and design teacher who has been working as a supply teacher throughout London for Smart since February.  Check back soon to his how Will enjoyed his time at Paramount!
