Messages of praise have been flooding in for teachers and schools from families across Dorset thanking them for all of their support during the pandemic. 

Teachers and educational staff have worked tirelessly to adapt and overcome the challenges and pressures of the pandemic whilst minimising the impact of lockdown on children’s learning is one of their main priorities.

Earlier in the week we asked families on the Bournemouth Daily Echo Facebook page if they had any schools or teachers they wanted to thank for their support during the pandemic. 

We were inundated with messages for the wonderful work of school staff with people commenting that every staff member was worthy of praise for all they have managed to achieve in such difficult circumstances. 

If you want to share a message about your child’s school, then you can still give it a mention in the comments here, or under the story on the Bournemouth Daily Echo Facebook page.
