The award gives young people the opportunity to nominate an adult professional who has made a significant difference in their life.
Sheridan School, Thetford is a specialist residential school for boys and girls aged 8 to 19 who have social, emotional and mental health difficulties with learning difficulties including autism. Many of the young people have experienced considerable disruption to their education as a result of their difficulties and may lack confidence in their own abilities.
Principal at Sheridan School said: "The quality of the care and education we provide to our students is paramount. However, sometimes it is the little things that make a big difference and Wanda undoubtedly has a fantastic attitude."
"Concern for the young person, patience and the willingness to go the extra mile are fantastic qualities for anyone working within a specialist education setting and Wanda is a perfect example of this. We are all very proud of her"
Wanda said: "It is always pleasing to have your work recognised but it is very special that one of the students has taken the time to nominate me for this recognition."
