Well done to our Blackburn Team

I just wanted to share this letter from one of our Headteachers:

“I am writing to express my heartfelt thanks for the fantastic response from the Blackburn team when we rang to book a school full of supply when we got our Ofsted Inspection phone call in the first week of this term. How Claire and the team managed to find us so many teachers at such short notice was nothing short of a miracle and greatly appreciated by my staff who wanted time to sort themselves out for the inspection. I have phoned to thank Claire but wanted to say thank you as it was such a fantastic response in our afternoon of need. As always I can rely on the excellent service that Key Stage provide but this far exceeded expectation and was so appreciated. Well done and thank you to all involved.”

Mrs Bickerton – Headteacher St Pauls Hoddlesden

I would also like to say ‘Thank you’ to all our supply teachers and teaching assistants that really do go the extra mile to help us out when we receive urgent and very last minute calls for supply from our schools. I know some of you have rearranged appointments and even gone without your lunch.

All your commitment and support really adds to the service that Key Stage Teacher Supply offers to its schools.

The proof is in the letter.
