Set to the backdrop of the song Praise You by Fatboy Slim, GFM teaching staff relayed messages of support and appreciation for NHS staff including family members currently working on the front line.

The video also included posters paying tribute critical workers and the message Stay Safe accompanied by a heart which had been created using pebbles on a local beach.

After watching the video compilation, headteacher at Bay House School, Nigel Matthias, said: ‘I actually felt quite emotional watching back all the tribute clips. This has been quite a challenge to put together with everyone working remotely but I think it really says something about the community spirit of our staff.’
