Pearson National Teaching Awards

Celebrating transformational teaching

Lorraine Dalton

Ysgol Esgob Morgan

The Award for Teacher of the Year in a Primary School

St Asaph, Denbighshire

Lorraine has been at Ysgol Esgob Morgan for 16 years and has been making a huge difference as a teacher from the moment she arrived. She gives every child the best opportunity to succeed and creates an impressive classroom culture for her learners in which they respect and encourage one another and celebrate each other’s successes.

The level of independence within Lorraine’s classroom surpassed expectations of pupils leaving secondary school, let alone primary school. Lorraine has overcome her fair share of personal challenges but her commitment, passion and impact on whole school practice is outstanding.
