Chantelle Green, a parent governor at SS Peter and Paul Catholic Primary Academy and Nursery, came up with the idea to mark National Thank A Teacher Day.

The parent, who works at Birmingham Children's Hospital in the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit, has now showcased the video – which will be shown to staff and teachers.

Principal Jenny Byrne said: "She She surprised me last night, out of the blue, by sending me a video that children and families across our school have joined together to create to thank the amazing teachers and staff at SS Peter and Paul on Thank a Teacher day today.

"No one will be expecting this at school and our team will appreciate it more than they know."

Mrs Bryne said the video – which features a range of pupils at the Hordern Road school sharing messages – was an incredible gesture.

She added: "It is wonderful, it is positive and it is going to lift our staff in a much needed way as we all work so very hard to be ready to safely reopen to more pupils in June.

"This is great timing, a wonderful effort and all the more special because this has been coordinated by a critical worker, who's children have attended our provision each week since schools closed in March.

"This project shows how valuable this sort of provision has been to our families and I know this nurse is dealing with a very stressful job, with the most poorly children and it is humbling for her and the family to even be thinking of teachers.

"It also shows that the children across the school appreciate our efforts to keep them accessing learning while we cannot we with them."
