A 17 year old Childcare student from Bridlington has recently been rewarded for excellent remarks made about her by OFSTED inspectors whilst on work placement at a local primary school.

Kelly Wray, a student currently studying the Certificate in Childcare and Education at East Riding College in Bridlington was on a work placement at the New Pasture Lane Primary School when some of her work was remarked upon by OFSTED inspectors whilst inspecting the school.

The inspector was particularly impressed with the way in which Kelly responded to the children's individual needs and her ability to keep all the children 'on task'.

The College felt that Kelly should be rewarded for her achievements and has awarded her with a letter of recognition by the College's Head of Curriculum for Early Years and Care Services and a £10 voucher.

Kelly hopes to go on to study on the Diploma in Childcare and Education in the coming year and then hopes to go on to work in the childcare industry.

Tracey Herridge, course tutor said "We are extremely proud of Kelly and the recent comments made by the OFSTED inspector. All of our students studying the Certificate in Childcare and Education attend 13 weeks of placement experience at local schools, nurseries and pre-school settings over the academic year. This is great practical experience for them as part of the course and we are pleased to see that Kelly has made such a valuable contribution towards this schools inspection."
