Welcome to Salisbury Primary School’s Website. We hope that you will find it informative and that it will provide you with an insight into life at the school. We aim to be a values based, inclusive school at the heart of our culturally diverse community.
In striving for excellence, we also aim to be inclusive and nurturing. We take pride in fostering enjoyment of learning that will lead to children being the best that they can be in all areas of the curriculum.
Central to our philosophy is a belief in equal opportunities and justice for all. We seek to meet the needs and fulfil the potential of everyone in our care. We value the abilities and talents of our children and emphasise their positive qualities and achievements.
We aim to develop these qualities through high expectation and good relationships in a consistent, stimulating and enjoyable learning environment. We welcome and value the many cultures of our community and in this respect regard children and parents as contributors to a teaching and learning partnership. We also see ourselves as partners with parents in helping to prepare our pupils for the next stage of their education with children having a responsible future, respect for themselves, respect for others and respect for their own and the global environment.

Message from the Chair of Governors
Welcome to Salisbury Primary School. As the Chair of Governors, I am here to support the staff, students and parents of Salisbury Primary School to ensure that we all reach our vision of a happy and caring school with high expectations both within and outside of the classroom.
Salisbury Primary School is a very special place. It has wonderful children who really enjoy their time in school, but the best schools are those that constantly strive to make improvements, make changes and adapt to the pupils’ needs. Salisbury Primary aims to do this.
As Governors we are fortunate to have a diverse mix of skilled people on our team. Some governors have experience in the world of business, others have an education based background and some have community or charity based experience. All this knowledge, skill and talent ensure we have a well-rounded and eclectic mix of governing body membership. As well as sharing a common desire to be involved in supporting the school, the Governing Body have statutory duties by which they are legally bound. The Governing Body is ultimately responsible for:
· Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
· Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils
· Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
I look forward to meeting you and working with your children and the dedicated staff at Salisbury Primary School.
Chair of Governors
