Karen Sorab Awards 2017

26th July 2017

Karen Sorab Award winner - staff

At the end of the summer term we held our second annual Karen Sorab Awards. The awards are given to the employee of BeyondAutism, and the two children or young people (one award per school) supported by BeyondAutism, who have shown the most effort and endurance over the preceding year. Parents and staff were given the chance to vote for the employee and student they felt deserved the award. The nominees were then discussed by a selection panel who made the final decision.

This year the awards have gone to the following people:

The Employee of the Year Award – Lauren Lovegrove (ABA Supervisor).

  • ‘Lauren is so passionate and dedicated to helping her pupils to excel and she is always a wonderful team player and a supportive line manager to her team’.
  • ‘She is a really dedicated and willing volunteer and she has always been very passionate about supporting the charity in any way she can.’

Lower School Student of the Year Award – Niran (Orange Class).

  • ‘Niran consistently demonstrates a love for learning. He has progressed considerably both in behaviour and academics and has worked so hard to speak clearly to both pupils and staff. Niran always gives 100% in to his learning.’

Upper School Student of the Year Award – Ciaran (Sixth Form 2).

  • ‘Ciaran has made amazing progress with his work experience. He used to find it very difficult to walk into the shop and not have his favourite sweets. He is currently working on stacking shelves with his absolute favourites, sweets and cake!’
