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.
Miss Elliott, Headteacher.
The behaviour of all pupils is outstanding, both in and outside the classroom. Pupils work hard and show interest and concern for one another. They are very proud of the school and their achievements.
In the office section you will find all the useful information you would expect such as copies of letters, term dates and all the details you need about dinners, payments and uniform. All payments into school are made on-line via School Gateway. Of course, if you can't find what you need then Mrs Rogers, Mrs Evans or Mrs Quick are always happy to help.

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.
We are a vibrant, caring and supportive church school, inspiring and serving the whole community. Our school motto is: 'caring for our community'.
We value our relationship with our PTA, our governors, St Mary's Church and the wider community in Saltford. Take a look at the 'Our community' pages that show how our whole community works together. 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.
The story of our logo
The tree has been a symbol of Saltford Church of England School for many years. The original version, which can be seen carved into the school lectern, was the tree of the knowledge of good and evil from the Genesis Creation story. Learning about the difference between good and evil is, of course, an essential element of any child’s education.
Some years ago it was decided to redesign the Saltford tree with seven oak leaves. It is now a powerful symbol which reminds us of our Christian heritage and traditions and encourages us to live our lives according to principles shared by Christians and members of other faith communities.

Six of the leaves represent our six Golden Rules, which are displayed in every classroom and which all children are expected to follow.
These rules are about respect for people and property and about striving to do our best at all times. Many of them are based on the Ten Commandments and the teachings of Jesus about how we should treat one another.
The seventh leaf represents our link with the church while the three acorns reflect the partnership between the school, parents and child as well as the Holy Trinity.
