MEET OUR TEAM
Hello, I have the privilege of being the Headteacher of Sabden Primary School in the beautiful Ribble Valleyat the foot of Pendle Hill and have worked here for 3 years. My teaching experience has been very varied across my career from teaching Service Children in Germany to working at one of the smallest schools in the country.
OAK CLASS & SENIOR TEACHER
Hello. I'm Mrs Murray, well-known for being found singing in corridors and dramatically reading my favourite stories to anyone that will listen! I have worked across the school in a variety of year groups but am currently the very proud teacher year 5 and 6.
CLASS 1 TEACHER
I went to university to study a BA Combined Honours Degree in Early Years & Special Needs, then I went on to complete a PGCE in Lower Primary at Lancaster University. I qualified in 2014 and spent some time as a supply teacher before teaching Reception for 3 years.
CLASS 2 TEACHER
I have been teaching at Sabden Primary School for 18months and am currently year 3/4 teacher and Maths Subject Leader. Maths is my passion and I am excited to be sharing this with the children and staff at Sabden, making Maths learning fun and engaging.
EARLY YEARS TEACHER
Hello, I am the Early Years Foundation Stage Class teacher here at Sabden. I am in my fourteenth year working in children’s education and my second here at our fabulous school in Sabden.
Throughout my 10 years at Sabden Primary School I have had the pleasure of supporting children across the whole school from Nursery to year 6. An advocate for mental health and wellbeing, I also offer support for children in school both socially and emotionally.
I have been at Sabden School for quite sometime now working alongside colleagues in all year groups and currently with EYFS children .
Our school is set in beautiful countryside which I like to get out into and explore. I enjoy walking, watching and observing our local wildlife and birds .
Hi, I am Amanda Rickard and work in the school office at Sabden Primary School, 3 days a week (Wednesday to Friday). Before having my family I worked at Karrimor and Craghoppers in marketing.
ARTIST IN RESIDENCE
Hello! I am Lizi Pickup and am the current Artist in Residence at Sabden Primary School. I am a qualified teacher in Art and design but my career took a tangent after graduating, where I worked at CBBC on Art programming behind and in-front of camera. Since leaving the BBC and moving back to Lancashire, I have run my own childrens’ art and craft...
Hello, I am a Teaching Assistant at Sabden Primary School and have worked at this lovely school for over 17 years.
