Teacher Cherryl Drabble’s Petition

Save TAsAfter the news of the Government culling teaching assistants across the UK, petitions were started to encourage parents, teachers, other teaching assistants and, well, everyone to sign up and fight against the decision. Cherryl Drabble, a teacher, who set up the ‘SAY NO TO REMOVAL OF TEACHING ASSISTANTS’ petition would really like as many numbers as possible. Therefore, please visit her petition and sign. If you wish to spread the word, she has put together the following email to use:


Dear Friends,

I just signed the petition “Say no to removal of Teaching Assistants” and wanted to ask if you could add your name too.

This campaign means a lot to me and the more support we can get behind it, the better chance we have of succeeding. You can read more and sign the petition here:


Thank you!

P.S. Can you also take a moment to share the petition with others? It’s really easy – all you need to do is forward this email or share this link on Facebook or Twitter
