It is with regret that we must inform you that school will be closing at 3:15pm on Friday 27th March to ALL children, including those of key workers. We have had to make this decision in the best interests of our staff, children and families to keep everybody safe and healthy. Please keep visiting our website and social media channels to stay updated on any new developments. This decision will be reviewed weekly. If you are a key worker, or a parent of a vulnerable child (including a Social Worker working with your family or your child has an EHCP) and are seeking a local school for your child to attend during this period of closure, you can contact us via phone (0121 667 4066) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Both of these channels of communication will be responded to every day of the school closure. We thank you for your continued support in this difficult time and look forward to seeing you and your children soon.
DfE Guidance to Parents
The DfE has issued this guidance to parents on school closures. Advice is constantly being updated, so please continue to visit our website, Facebook and Twitter daily, as we strive to keep you as up to date as possible. Thank you as always for your patience and support.
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).

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
