"developing positive relationships with our children. They are so willing to get stuck in and make my job so much fun!"
"helping our pupils to aspire towards their dreams and grow as individuals."
"watching the children flourish."
"working with the children who need extra support and watching their achievements. I have loved teaching the Read, Write, Inc scheme and supporting Year 1."
"working as a team - we are a a family community and we are trying to change children's lives."
"the learning atmosphere and all the activities that have been introduced to create enthusiasm in our school."
"seeing the children at such a young age, guiding them and teaching 'The St Bernard's Way' and then crying with them when they leave our school family reminiscing about when they started all those years ago when they were just three years old."
"the supportive and hard working nature of all the staff and leadership at St Bernard's. Everyone at our school wants the best for the children and works hard together to achieve this."
"having the best jobs in the world - shaping the future for the amazing children of Burnage."
"creating exciting lessons with the children, getting messy with clay and paint."
"working with our wonderful children and watching them grow and forming strong relationships with all the staff - being part of our wonderful school family."
"working together to create a curriculum that fits the children here at St Bernard's."
"that every day is so different and the children are so open to learning."
"how much people care about each other. Our school is clean and our displays are wonderful."
"how everyone is made to feel like a member of the family and everyone is looked after."
"helping the children flourish in their own talents and believe in themselves."
"seeing that 'light blub moment' when the children learn something new and the self confidence it gives them."
"interacting with the children and colleagues, being able to do different things in a day and enjoying a variety of professional development opportunities."
"working with such a fantastic team of people and such wonderful children."
"that everyone I walk past throughout the day, whether it be a child, a staff member or a visitor, has a smile or a kind word. St Bernard's has established a very warm and welcoming atmosphere."
"the way in which faith is embedded across the school and I enjoy sharing in the celebrations such as mass and assembly."
