A warm welcome

We are all extremely proud of our school and committed to providing the very best education possible for all of our children.

Every decision within our school is made by first considering the best interests of the children. In this way, children lie at the heart of everything we do.

We look forward to working with you and your child so that Saltford Church of England Primary can continue to be the popular and very special place that it is today.

Curriculum

We used a variety of topic titles when introducing the curriculum changes of 2014 – these were revisited in May 2017. Since then we have further developed our creative and thematic approach to learning; mapping key skills to the Primary National Curriculum to ensure comprehensive coverage of national expectations.

We believe children learn better when they are encouraged to use their imagination and apply their learning to engaging contexts. Our curriculum provides lots of learning challenges throughout the academic year that require children to solve problems, apply themselves creatively and express their knowledge and understanding effectively across the curriculum. It also provides a rich menu of exciting and motivating learning activities that make creative links between all aspects of our children’s learning.

Our Subject Leaders have outlined the end of year expectations in their subjects using the Chris Quigley skills progression resources. These essential skills are age related so that staff can track children’s progress and identify their individual learning needs.

Take a look at the Curriculum section of this site for full subject-by-subject information.

Our community

We value our relationship with our PTA, our governors and the wider community in Saltford. We have excellent links with St. Mary's Church, the Parish Council and the Community Association. During December both the Lighting of the Christmas Tree at the village hall and the visiting of local residential homes to sing are key events in the school calendar. 

We welcome volunteers from the community who offer to support at school and we would love to hear from you if you have any skills you feel you could share. Any suggestions as to how the school could help with community matters would also be well received.

We are part of the Wellsway MAT, and our feeder nurseries include Tiddlers in Saltford. The Chuckles breakfast and after-school club is run at the school.
