A Worle teacher has been chosen to meet the Prime Minister as recognition for her years of service.

Sally Taylor, who has taught at Castle Batch Primary School for 28 years, will meet Theresa May at a reception in Downing Street.

Headteacher Vicky Dupras said: “This is a much deserved recognition for an exceptional member of staff.

“Sally is outstanding in every way, often going above and beyond for the children and the school.”

Sally, who is a deputy headteacher, has developed a nurture room for the school’s more vulnerable children, and trained other staff in how to help them.

Vicky said: “Sally has real empathy and understanding of children who find school difficult and are vulnerable

“She comes into school every day with a laugh and a smile and improves the lives of everyone who comes into contact with her.

“As a headteacher, I would be pretty much lost without her.”
