Katrina Randall, formerly of Spalding Primary School, and Rachel Vidler , of Linchfield Communtiy Primary School, Deeping St James, have just eight years’ teaching experience between them.

But both made enough of a difference in the lives of their pupils to be named Inspirational Teacher of the Year (Primary) in 2014 and 2015 respectively.

The Lincolnshire Free Press and Spalding Guardian is looking for another primary school teacher from South Holland, Bourne, the Deepings and villages south of Boston who is making a real difference in the lives of their pupils and the wider community through hard work, innovation and dedication.

Rutland-based Mana Education, which supplies teachers to schools across eastern England, is sponsoring the award.

Alistair Nottingham, one of its directors, said: “Mana Education are different because we listen.

“Every school is different and so by getting to know them, we understand their needs.

Every school is different, but every teacher is different also, with their own unique qualities

“But also every teacher is different, with their own unique qualities, which is why Mana Education does not believe in a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach.

“A happy teacher will engage and inspire pupils to reach goals and higher attainment at our primary schools.”
