Devon teacher awarded outstanding achievement award

27 June 2016

Hays Education, the leading recruiting expert, has recognised a local teacher for his outstanding contributions to Devon schools this year.

James Heath was awarded the Outstanding Achievement Award in recognition of his work as a hugely dedicated teacher throughout the 2015/16 academic year.  

James said: “Thank you very much for the award!” 

Fliss Terrill, Supply Coordinator at St Sidwell’s Primary School, a school in Exeter that James has been working in regularly this year, said: “We are always delighted - and very reassured - when we are able to secure James Heath to cover for teachers in our school.  James is an exemplary teacher - he arrives punctually, gets on well with everyone, and above all is able to glide easily into whatever is required of him. He completely understands our ethos and the standards we expect and is therefore able to provide consistency for the children. There is no sense of disruption to the schedule of the week as James is able to fit in as a member of our team.  He pays great attention to detail, leaves excellent information and feedback for the teachers and is meticulous in his marking.”

Dan Garswood, recruiter for Hays Education in Exeter said: “We are pleased to be able to recognise the vital role that our excellent supply teachers play in schools across Devon. Teachers like James show how much of an impact supply teachers can make on a school and its pupils, we extend our congratulations to James on his award.”
