Following this evening’s Government announcement, Salisbury will be CLOSED from Tuesday 5th January 2021 until further notice. Spaces in school will be available to vulnerable children and children of key workers. Please read this letter for more information.
Reopening of Schools & Risk Assessment
The Government has produced this information for parents and carers concerning the reopening of schools. We hope you find it informative and that it answers any questions that you may have.
We have also produced this updated Covid-19 Risk Assessment for the reopening of school that details the measures we are taking to keep your children and our staff safe when we reopen to children on Thursday 3rd September 2020.
Early Years Starter Information
Please click on this link to view the information that was sent to the parents of all children in Nursery and Reception. If you have lost your date/time for meeting you child’s teacher, please call school Monday 1st/Tuesday 2nd September.
Updated information for parents
The first 2 links below will take to you to our Behaviour Policy Appendix, containing rules that children will need to follow upon their return to school. There is also a leaflet containing these rules that you may find useful for using when talking to your children.
The final link is for a document called ’49 Worries of Parents, Carers and Families’ and may answer some question and concerns you have about the reopening of schools to children.
‘Hello, my name is Coronavirus’
This link will take you to a story called ‘Hello, my name is Coronavirus’ – a wonderful resource that you can share with your children to teach them about what the virus is and why it is so important that we practise good hygiene to keep ourselves, and others, safe. Please take a few minutes to share this with your children!
Learning from home in the event of absence of school closure
We understand that all parents and carers are eager for their children to not miss out on any learning in the event of absence caused by self-isolation, illness from Covid-19, or even school closure. For that reason, all children have access to Google Classroom where they can access work that they may be missing out on whilst they are at home. All children have Google account log ins that they will use to log in to Google Classroom.
Please read this short guide to accessing Google Classroom, which is very simple to understand and will help to ensure that your children do not miss out on any key learning. Please also keep up to date on any further communication from the school by regularly checking our Facebook and Twitter pages, as well as our ‘Letters Home’ page (access via the ‘News & Events’ tab in the menu bar).

Ofsted outcome – we are a ‘good’ school!
We are delighted to announce that Salisbury Primary School has been rated as ‘good’ by Ofsted.
Ofsted have recognised the hard work and commitment of our whole school team in securing this rating, and we are immensely proud of everyone involved with our school; pupils, staff, governors and parents alike.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us.
Message from the Headteacher
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 expectations 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.
Mrs D. Steen
Message from the Chair of Governors
Welcome to Salisbury Primary School. As 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 has 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
