The Deputy Head of a County Durham primary school fought off stiff competition to win of a prestigious national STEM award.
Louise Parks, Deputy Head at Bournmoor Primary School, Houghton-le-Spring, won the Primary Science ENTHUSE award at the 2016 celebration in London.
The ENTHUSE Awards recognise outstanding teaching professionals and the effect they have on their pupils, their colleagues and the wider school. Ms Parks is one of the seven teachers and technicians to have had their significant impact on the science teaching in their schools recognised.
All winners took part in professional development at the National STEM Learning Centre, with support from an ENTHUSE Award bursary. Since 2008, Project ENTHUSE has given over 17,000 bursaries to teachers and technicians working in state maintained schools in the UK to support their professional development.
Congratulations from everyone at SCHOOLS NorthEast to Ms Parks and Bournmoor Primary School for this fantastic achievement, very well done!
