      It’s work we want students to begin the moment they enter the room, so that they are working immediately and not chatting for 5 minutes about TOWIE or whatever else was on TV last night; work they would beging the moment the bell goes for the start of the lesson…

    As an ex pupil of Huntington School myself – I was great to read and see Dr Keith Wragg’s legacy and work is still continuing through you. Although I wasn’t an academic pupil, the desire to learn and study was still instilled (I managed to finally get enough qualifications to read Media and Communications at Sunderland and since worked at the BBC). It’s good to see that Huntington still looks after both academic and non-academic students.

    I was interested in your Guardian Blog remarks when you said that Principals are putting their pupils first when they prioritise the health and well being of their teachers.
    Teachers who are stressed and don’t feel supported don’t perform effectively and pupil attainment suffers.
