Peterborough teacher awarded Outstanding Achievement Award

16 December 2014

Hays Education, the leading recruiting expert, has recognised a local teacher for her outstanding contributions to her school.

Lindy Daffeh from Gunthorpe Primary School IN Peterborough was awarded the Outstanding Achievement Award. The award was presented to Lindy in recognition of her work as a hugely dedicated teacher.

Lindy said: “I'm very surprised, touched and honoured. I'm extremely happy to be working in such a great school so this hasn't felt like hard work. The recognition, however, has made me feel like Christmas has come early.”
Fran Hollingsworth, Headteacher at Gunthorpe Primary School, said: “It’s been great having Lindy work with us this term. She has completely fitted into our team and works extremely hard with the children. I have seen some fabulous learning taking place in her classroom. We have decided to employ Lindy at our school permanently from January 2015. Thank you Hays for sending her our way.”
Eleanor Clatworthy, Recruitment Consultant at Hays Education, comments: “We are pleased to be able to recognise the vital role that our excellent teachers play in schools across Cambridgeshire. Supply teaching offers independence, flexibility, variety and the opportunity to learn something new and meet new people. We extend our congratulations to Lindy on her award.”
