Special educational needs teacher at Thomas Middlecott Academy in Kirton has been nominated for national competition by a parent

An ‘inspirational’ special educational needs teacher is set to take part in a national competition which could see her win a new title.

Keeley Robinson, who is the deputy safeguarding lead at Thomas Middlecott Academy in Kirton, could be crowned Teacher of the Year after being entered into the contest by a parent.

The parent, who did not wish to be named said: “Miss Robinson has been an amazing support for us. The support we’ve had, including extra revision sessions and adjustments, means my children have done really well in recent exams.

“She truly goes above and beyond to help my children, and I’m sure many others too. Her responsiveness to any issues, and her care and dedication is what helps my children go to school. She thoroughly deserves to be teacher of the year.”

The national competition will run until August 31 and the winner will be announced in September, where the teacher with the most votes will be crowned. If she wins, Miss Robinson could also receive a £1250 Lincolnshire gift card – which is led by Destination Lincolnshire and can be spent with more than 40 businesses in the county, including shops, restaurants and attractions.
