An "exceptional" primary school teacher has received a Teacher of the Year award at a special ceremony held at the House of Commons.

Jacob-Nicholas Mitchell was awarded the Silver Pearson Teaching Award for his work at Church Hill Primary School in East Barnet.

Mr Mitchell was shortlisted from a record number of more than 20,000 nominations made by past and present pupils, parents and colleagues.

He will now join 59 fellow silver award winners at the UK final of the Teaching Awards at London's Guildhall on October 26, where 11 will receive gold awards

Rod Bristow, president of Core Markets at Pearson, said: "Everyone can remember a teacher who inspired and challenged them so it's important to say thank you.  It is great teaching that makes the biggest difference to learning and that's why great teachers must be recognised."
