AS the end of term edges nearer, we wanted to give you the opportunity to say thank you to the teachers who have made a big difference to you and your child.

Whether it was staying until after the school bell to help them pass their exams or you just want to let them know how brilliant they have been before your child leaves for high school, we want to hear your thank you messages.

Keep scrolling to see just some of the messages we've had so far. 

And if your child is leaving primary school this summer, don't miss our Year 6 Leavers picture supplement in next week's paper.

If you want to send in your thank you message, you can use the form at the bottom of the story. 

Please make sure you include the teacher's name, their school and your child's name.

And for an extra special thank you, please include a picture of your child alongside your message.

Has your child had the best teacher in town this year? Send us your thank you messages along with the teacher's name school and a picture of your child

I would like to say a massive thank you to Sacred Heart Catholic Primary school especially my sons teachers Mrs Biltawi and Mrs Gabriel. Not only are they Amazing teachers but they are caring kind and supportive. My son Ethan-James struggles with anxiety and his attention and they Work amazingly with him. Tonight was the school disco which usually he wouldn't go to but with the help of Ear defenders and gentle encouragement he managed the school disco. The school on a whole is amazing. So glad it's where my son attends couldn't ask for a better school. Like a second family. Thank you for all you do Sacred Heart. Each and every one of you xxx Ethan-James Jackson Sacred heart Catholic primary school Mrs Biltawi and Mrs Gabriel Year 2

Mrs Mousedale and Mrs Marsh from St Andrew's have been amazing since taking over the year 6 class after xmas, putting on extra classes in their own time and working tirelessly to get the children up to speed ready for their SATS while keeping it fun and not putting too much pressure on the children.
