• The Award for Teacher of the Year in a Primary School
  • St Laurence’s CE Primary School

Ian was nominated for his award by a group of parents who wanted to share how much they recognise
and value his outstanding work with children. As a former pupil of his school himself, he is said to have
St Laurence’s CE Primary School “written through him like a stick of rock”. His strong relationships
with parents helps to ensure that St Laurence’s is at the heart of the local community. As his headteacher said, “I would say to anyone who wishes to know what sort of teacher Ian is,
“go and ask his pupils – the answer is always brilliant!”
