An Ely teacher was invited to a reception at 10 Downing Street to celebrate the work of the teaching profession across the country.

Rachel Clarke, deputy head of Ely St Mary’s CofE Junior School, was nominated to represent DEMAT.

The drinks reception – to recognise ‘outstanding work of teachers’ – was for primary, secondary and special school teachers across the UK and included a speech from Prime Minister Theresa May.

Rachel met Education Secretary Damian Hinds and Children and Families Minister Nadhim Zahawi.

Rachel said: “It was an honour to be invited to the reception and to meet not only the Secretary of State but also many other dedicated and committed teachers doing an outstanding job for our children and young people.”
