Teaching Assistants

Miss Elliott is a Teaching Assistant at Berry Hill Primary School, she is a key member of staff by 

supporting the way the school links to the local community. As a school we are very supportive of the local Park, King George V Park. Due to a lack of space we cannot plant anymore trees or plant bulbs on the school site, so we do it over at the Park. This a great learning opportunity for the children and we visit the Park whenever we can. We recently visited to plant a community orchard, re-sow a wildflower meadow and to design a tree carving. Without Miss Elliott's support to help organise visits they would not happen. She checks that we have all permissions in place and that the purposes for the visit is going to support children's learning. Without her, our links to the community to support the local environment would be much less. School is now moving along on a journey of looking at ways it can reduce energy in school by being an Eco School. The work we do on the Park will be a crucial part to our application, so Miss Elliott's support will be even more important. We are very proud to announce that Miss Elliott has recently been awarded the Reduce, Reuse and Recycle Award by the Chad Pride Awards.

 

We would also like to thank Corinna Brown for her continued support at Berry Hill.
