Rebecca Price
  • The Award for Teacher of the Year in a Primary School
  • Diamond Wood Community Academy
  • Dewsbury, West Yorkshire

Rebecca Price has led a number of initiatives across the school in a bid to make sure her pupils have every opportunity to reach their full potential, and has been instrumental in improving school standards.

Some of the ways Becki contributes to the school community include leading the Carry My Story project, developing the forest school, implementing Iris Technology across school and guiding the new curriculum. She has achieved all this despite suffering a number of health issues which could easily have put her in hospital for extended periods of time, but instead, she worked with local nurses to integrate her health care with school life.

Colleagues say Becki is a wonderful role model with an incredibly positive spirit, which is reflected in her high-quality teaching and in her leadership role as Assistant Head Teacher.
