The winner of Employee of the Month for November 2019 is Frankie Smith, Learning Support Assistant from Birtenshaw School, Merseyside.

Frankie has been an invaluable support to the class teacher since they started at Birtenshaw School, Merseyside in September 2019.

‘Pupils can sometimes display behaviour which can be seen as challenging and Frankie’s calm and sensitive approach has helped bring them out of crisis on numerous occasions. He knows how to calm any situation and is also willing to try new strategies.

Frankie has worked 1:1 with some pupils and has helped immeasurably with their progress both socially and academically. During a recent lesson observation, it was remarked that the class was like a different place compared to the one in September 2019 and I whole heartedly believe that Frankie has played a huge part in this change.’
