Staff Appreciation Page: Debbie Carter

September 8, 2017 by Ellie Linton

We are very sad to be saying farewell to our Learning Mentor, Debbie Carter, who is leaving us this week to start a new job at Tameside Council. Here’s what some of our staff and children had to say about Mrs Carter…

“If you’ve got a problem Mrs Carter is very good at seeing your point of view. If I ever go to her with a problem she makes me feel as if it isn’t a problem anymore because she can always help. She is very caring. We’re really lucky to have her and it is very sad that she is leaving.” Erin 6KR

“She’s really helpful and kind. Once I had an idea and she made time to listen to my idea to try and make it happen. It’s really sad that she is leaving but will be good for her to try something new because she’s worked here for quite a long time!” Arthur 6KR

“Mrs Carter helps us when we are buddying. If anyone ever has a problem she can always sort it out. She is kind and helpful.” Montel 6WG

“I like how she is very amusing at times. She’s very good at helping children stay focussed on the work they are doing. She is generous and smart.” Sam 4MQ

“Mrs Carter is friendly. I will miss her when she leaves.” Grace 3KB

“I’d like to say a huge thank you to Debbie for all she’s done for our school, our children and our families. Debbie started on the same day as me and instantly stepped up to help in any way she could. When OFSTED arrived they described her as ‘a good lass who knew what it was all about’ and that’s always made me smile. A big thank you to Debbie for being such a great person and such a hard worker.”- Deborah Howard, Headteacher

“It has been an absolute joy to work alongside this incredible lady for the last four years. She has been a phenomenal support for our staff, families and children. Her strong determination and moral compass for doing what is right for our children, not matter how much this adds to her workload, always shines through. I owe her so much for being my backbone during my first two years- I have learnt so much from you Debbie, for which I will be forever grateful. You have made such a difference to the lives of so many children that you’ve worked with. I know we will all be very sad to see you go. Therefore I’m refusing to say goodbye I’ll just say see you soon for lots of meet ups over coffees and cakes!”- Donna Wealleans, Assistant Headteacher (Pastoral/Safeguarding)
