TAP provides us with the opportunity for our staff to express their appreciation of each other, making you feel you are a valued member of the team and in turn creating a positive environment to work in.

At Al Ain English Speaking School, we believe that the biggest asset we have for our children’s learning, is our teachers. In current times, our teachers, like teachers all over the world, are working longer and harder, and deserve every encouragement and ounce of praise as they ensure the continuity of learning for all. TAP is a great way to allow members of the school community to thank our staff in the school, helping to raise staff welfare and motivate them even further.

A huge privilege to work alongside such talented, compassionate and hardworking professionals at St Peter’s.

Heather Daly

Deputy Headteacher, St Joseph and St Bede RC Primary School

Wellbeing at Cranbury College is crucial to the development of staff and students. The environment we work in can be emotionally challenging and it is important that staff have the resilience and resources to support some of the most vulnerable children in our community. It’s not just about the incredible outcomes we help our students achieve, that make it worthwhile but the positive feedback we receive from them, their parents and guardians, that is the most rewarding. Our staff deserve to know how valued they truly are and that is why we are using TAP to make this happen.

Mandy Wilton

Headteacher, Cranbury College

Having recently joined the college, I can honestly say that my colleagues are doing an incredible job, especially during these challenging times. They are 100% committed to providing the best possible care and education for our students and TAP’s thanking platform provides a wonderful way for our students’ parents and carers to show their appreciation.

Jessie Hay

Director of Finance and Resources, Honiton Community College

To receive an unexpected message of thanks from a parent really does generate a huge smile, and in this current world of negativity it shows that there is nothing better for your mental health than reading a kind word of thank or praise.

Teaching Assistant, Primary School

TAP gives families an opportunity to express their appreciation to teachers. So often teachers are at the frontline for parental complaints. It is important for them to realise these are outweighed by support for their efforts and commitment. Recruiting teachers is becoming increasingly more difficult. TAP provides a way of raising the profession’s profile and value in society. It motivates the team and supports a positive ethos. TAP is an effective and welcome addition to any school’s ethos and staff wellbeing programme.

Lorna Anderton

Headteacher, St Michael’s Church of England Primary School

We aim to provide a true home from home and we value the input from our families to enhance the children’s learning and development. TAP provides an ideal platform for our children’s families to give regular and positive feedback to our committed staff.

Sam Evans

Nursery Director, Little Learners Childcare

The positive mental health and wellbeing of our children, families and staff team are top priorities for our school. This means that they surround and underpin all of our other improvement priorities in school. I see TAP as a natural extension of this, in providing parents with an easy way to send private and positive messages of thanks to our team.

Lou Harrison

Headteacher, King Richard III Infant and Nursery School

The Thank and Praise concept is a lovely way to support the staff and the college as a whole.

John Panton

External Communications and Media Teacher, Exmouth Community College

I want to make sure that my colleagues continue to be appreciated on an ongoing basis. As a headteacher, I’m excited by the opportunities TAP provides to support staff wellbeing and as a firm believer in the power of thanks, I know that it will create an environment of positivity.
