Carla Moorcroft

Our judges comment:

‘Mrs Moorcroft is not only an extremely effective teacher, but someone who has made enormous efforts to create a supportive and caring school community through linking groups both outside and inside its parameters.

She is clearly an extremely kind person who, to quote her pupils, ‘is the sort of person who makes every day a bit brighter’.

‘She has obviously made a great deal of difference to the lives of her students, in both pastoral, social and educational ways and is a most deserving winner of this accolade.’

Highly Commended
