Jake Meek – Holbrook Primary

Last autumn Jake experienced a series of significant events, including moving to a new school and breaking his leg. With the support of his carers, his class teacher, his 1:1 learning mentor, and the headteacher, Jake has made a remarkably successful transition and significant academic progress. He is now preparing to transfer to high school in September. Jake is an incredibly warm-hearted, enthusiastic and determined young man who participates in all aspects of school life.

 

 

 

 

 

Shortlisted Finalists

Faith Spurgeon – Oulton Broad Primary

Faith is described as a pupil that behaves perfectly at all times and is a role model for all children, despite a difficult start in life. Since starting at Oulton Broad Primary School she has made great progress academically and over the last school year has made more progress in her learning than any other child in her class.

 

Matthew Jones – Pot Kiln Primary, Sudbury

Matt spent a lot of his youth in hospital, and has had to overcome difficulties on a daily basis, such as walking, running, writing, but he never gives up. His positive attitude to education, success and life has enabled him to exceed his end of year targets and meet the goals he set himself. He is a fantastic role model, one that all children in the class aspire to, never giving up and always striving to reach the next challenge.
