Deputy Headteacher and Year 6 Teacher
Sarah Wilde

I joined Barkisland Primary School in 2012 as the new Deputy Headteacher and, at the time, the new Reception teacher .  It has always been my ambition to work in a church village primary school as I love the atmosphere a Christian school brings to enhance children's lives.

Previous to here I taught in Rochdale and during my early career I was based in Manchester.  Both of the schools in these authorities were very challenging, so to come to a school where the children love to learn and parents are extremely supportive is like a dream come true.  I have experience of teaching children from 3-11 years old and have enjoyed each year group.  In addition to my teaching, I was part of a small team of Lead Teachers for the local authority.  I was a Lead Teacher for English and Assessment for Learning.  This meant I could help other teachers and schools who were struggling in these areas.

I have a passion for English, in particular reading.  I believe if children are taught how to love to read, then this opens a whole world for them and can have a massive impact on their writing.

As well as my Deputy role, I co-ordinate English, Computing (ICT), Curriculum and Assessment.

Outside of school I love to read, tinkle on the piano, spend time with my family and dog, explore, travel and shop!
