Commenting on ATL research on the level of violence towards teachers, Julian Stanley, Chief Executive of Education Support Partnership comments:

"Violence against teachers is unacceptable. Staff in other sectors do not go to work fearing or expecting they will be physically or verbally abused & teachers & support staff in schools also have an unassailable right to do their jobs without fear of violence or intimidation."

Our History

Victorian school room

We have been supporting education staff for over 140 years 

Established some 140 years ago in 1877, we were first known as The Teachers’ Benevolent Fund, designed to provide financial support teachers and their families in difficult circumstances.

By 1927 some of the main reasons people had for contacting the service were; nervous breakdown, housing and consumption. We also offered help to the orphans of teaching staff.
