Lisa Rees-Renshaw holding gold Pearson National Teaching Award
  • The Award for Outstanding Use of Technology, supported by Google
  • Ysgol Deri
  • Gold Winners, Silver Winners
  • 2017
  • Vale of Glamorgan, Wales

Lisa has worked at Ysgol Y Deri since it opened in 2014, coming from Ysgol Erw’r Delyn. Her approach to the use of technology with pupils is truly inspirational. She carefully considers the needs of each child and whether it’s adapting equipment, setting up communication devices or helping them to control their environments, the work she does is literally life changing.

Pupils without a voice now have a voice and others are able to take part in activities previously inaccessible to them. Through it all she is quiet and modest about her accomplishments. Her work has been singled out by Estyn as exceptional.

Lisa’s school is very proud of her and sees this award as a fabulous recognition of her work.
