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.

Dawn Sage, Headteacher.

Curriculum

We used a variety of topic titles when introducing the curriculum changes of 2014 – these were updated in May 2019. 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. To see a summary of our curriculum at Saltford please click here. To see our curriculum vision please click here.

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.

Our two year Curriculum Rolling Programme can be found here.

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

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.

Caring for our community

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.
