Sarah is trustworthy, honest and reliable and has an imaginative approach to her teaching. Miss Hampton has taken responsibility for her own professional development and attended training courses when appropriate, including specialist courses in the teaching of ASD pupils and in learning sign language to communicate with pre-verbal pupils."

  • “Sarah's most obvious attributes are her enthusiasm and positive attitude. These enable her to strike up positive and effective relationships with children and colleagues within a short space of time. She shows the ability and inclination to see situations from the children's point of view and a unique sensitivity to their needs, particularly those with the greatest need. I believe she is driven to make a difference in this area. It is very difficult for this approach not to rub off on her colleagues. Sarah is flexible, entirely reliable and very hard working."
