Tottenham teacher wins education award

MAKING A POSITIVE IMPACT: (L-R) Headteacher Julie d’Abreau, award-winnner Anoria Simmons, assistant director for school standards at Haringey Council Jon Abbey, Khurshid Khan and Haringey councillor Gideon Bull

ANORIA SIMMONS has been named the winner of the Pearson Teaching Award for Teacher of the Year in a Primary School for London and the South East.

Judges lavished praise on the teacher at Devonshire Hill Primary School, in Tottenham, north London, for her commitment and dedication to her role.

Founded in 1999, the Pearson Teaching Awards is an annual celebration of exceptional teachers and teaching.

It recognises the life-changing impact of an inspirational teacher on the lives of the young people they teach.

“We were completely bowled over by Anoria and the stories surrounding her success at school,” said the Teaching Award judges.

“She is the kind of person the awards were set up to identify and recognise - she is a truly remarkable person.”

One parent of a child who attends Devonshire Hill Primary School was full of praise for Simmons, saying: “Miss Simmons would go to the moon and back for any child”.

Another labelled her: “Super Simmons, with a heart of gold”.

Simmons will now join fellow winners at the UK final of the Teaching Awards on October 20, which will be filmed in London and broadcasted by the BBC.
