BRAINS don’t switch off in Sarah Armitage’s class at Littletown Junior, Infant and Nursery School in Liversedge.
This inspirational teacher has been named as one of three finalists in the National Teaching Awards northern region final in the primary teacher of the year category.
Sarah, who has taught at the school for five years, was nominated for the award by her class.
And judges were so impressed with their comments that they named her as a finalist.
Eleven-year-old Hannah Pearce said: “Miss Armitage helps me learn better and it is a lot of fun. My brain never switches off in her class.”
Ten-year-old Max Moyser said: “I get up in the morning and am wanting to come to school. I didn’t always want to do that!”
Headteacher Sue Fenton said: “She creates a climate for learning that is both fun and highly motivational.
“She is determined to give every child the chance to achieve and give them ambitions and aspirations for the future.”
The school was judged to be outstanding when Government inspectors from Ofsted visited in March last year.
Those who visited her class said she was: “Inspirational. This is cutting edge stuff.”
