GOLD AWARD WINNER – Miss Abi Chase, Bassaleg School, Newport


As Teacher of English and Associate Headteacher for Pedagogy and Reflective Practice, Abi inspires the whole school community with her infectious passion for learning and genuine care for pupils’ wellbeing.


Seen as an outstanding practitioner in every regard, Abi ‘makes a difference’ every day not just to the pupils who she teaches but to the staff who are guided, mentored and coached by her. Abi embodies to her core everything teachers should aspire to in the way she sets the highest expectations for herself and those around her; she will never give up on anyone or anything!


Loved by staff, pupils and parents alike, colleagues have said that Abi ‘makes us want to be better’ and pupils simply say that she is ‘awesome!’ Abi is our ultimate #superstag and the most wonderful role model for all.
