Borough Council of King's Lynn & West Norfolk a Lynn News & Klimatech Education Awards 2022 sponsor
West Norfolk Council have sponsored the Inspirational Teacher of the Year (Primary) category at the Lynn News/Klimatech Education Awards.
The awards ceremony will take place in the Barn at Knights Hill Hotel, Lynn on Thursday, July 21.
Cllr Stuart Dark MBE, borough council leader, said: “We were really keen to be involved with the Education Awards as we recognise the importance of young people in West Norfolk receiving a good quality education. Getting that right at the very start of their school life will help them through their entire academic journey, wherever that might take them.
“With that in mind, we have chosen to sponsor the Inspirational Primary School Teacher category. Nominees for this award will be the epitome of inspirational.
“They will have engaged their students in innovative and exciting ways, through a period that has been particularly challenging due to impact that the Covid-19 pandemic has had on all teachers and students.
"I am personally looking forward to hearing about the work that our primary school teachers have been doing to give West Norfolk’s young people the very best beginning to their educational experience.”
