If you're thinking about starting a rewarding career in teaching, choosing a route and finding a training course that fits your needs may feel like a daunting process.

Families across Portsmouth are continuing to recognise the school superheroes who go above and beyond for the city's children and young people. We've reached an incredible milestone in our thank a school superhero initiative and have now received over 500 messages!

If you know someone in a primary or secondary school who deserves a big thank you, there is still time to share a special message with them. The deadline for the thank a school superhero initiative has been extended, inviting people who live in Portsmouth to recognise someone who has gone above and beyond the call of duty.

It has been fantastic to see so many diverse shoutouts for our school staff across the city over the last few weeks. We have had an astounding number of messages for the thank a superhero campaign. Meet Louise, who is a teacher at the Mary Rose School. She is another school superhero who has been recognised by a colleague in the city.

"Thank you" was the word used by pupils at a Portsmouth school who have celebrated the launch of an initiative to recognise their classroom superheroes. Pupils at Meon Way Federation hosted a special launch event in support of school staff who have gone above and beyond for them.

We've been overwhelmed by families nominating their school superheroes. From teachers to administrative staff, we've been blown away by the response so far. Meet Caroline, who works at Trafalgar School as a HR officer. She is one of the many school superheroes who've been recognised by a parent in the city. 

A mum whose child attends a King's Academy school in Portsmouth has praised the efforts of one staff member who went above and beyond the call of duty. 

They are now being recognised as part of our 'thank a school superhero' initiative that shines a light on those who go the extra mile for children and young people.
