A teaching assistant at an infant school says she was in “shock” when she was named the winner of a prestigious award.

Sarah Jones who has worked at Crownfield Infant and Nursery School, White Hart Lane, Romford, for around 20 years, has won the title of Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA) for the London and south east region.

She said: “I was so happy to be nominated but when I actually won I was in total shock - I was bowled over!

“It’s a great feeling to be recognised for all the work that I’ve done over the years.”

She was nominated by headteacher Sharon Nacmia and was delighted when Sarah was first shortlisted and then announced as the winner.

Sarah will go on to the national final for HLTA of the Year which will be held next month.

Sharon said: “I was absolutely delighted that Sarah won, she works very hard and is committed to the school and children here at Crownfield.”
