Ceri Mahon

Conwy County Council - Ysgol Y Gogarth

Ceri is described by Ysgol y Gogarth as an outstanding and dedicated teaching assistant who is making an “exceptional impact” on children’s personal, social, emotional and academic development.

Alongside her Supporting Teaching and Learning in School Level 3 qualification, she has become a facilitator through the Outstanding Teaching Assistant Programme and completed the higher-level Teaching Assistant qualification.

The school says Ceri’s main strength is the support that she provides to children with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. She delivers a range of intervention programmes and supports children through her use of Makaton.

She is committed to her own professional development as she sees how it impacts her role in school. She has facilitated Outstanding Teaching Assistant Programme training to staff colleagues and shares her knowledge to benefit others.

Saltney Ferry County Primary School

Teaching assistant Ryan’s engaging way of working with young children was highlighted as a strength in Saltney Ferry County Primary School’s recent Estyn inspection.
