As a member of The Kemnal Academies Trust (TKAT) and The Attwood Foundation we are committed to providing outstanding academic provision for our pupils.
We have our own Nursery and provide an excellent transition programme for children about to enter our Foundation Stage.
Our buildings are well maintained and are bright and welcoming thanks to many recent investments. We are committed to 21st century learning and preparing our children for the future. Every class has an interactive whiteboard and visualiser. We have a computer suite that will accommodate a whole class at a time as well as portable laptops and netbooks that can go into any class. We have recently purchased netbooks to ensure that each class from Year 1 to Year 6 has ten netbooks available for every lesson.
We provide a daily breakfast club as well as a range of before and after school clubs.
Staff at Salmestone have high aspirations for our pupils. It is our aim to engage all our children in their learning, developing a love of learning and so creating a community of confident independent learners who are well prepared for secondary school and beyond.
We have an open door policy for current and prospective parents; we encourage strong links between home and school for all our children and their families. We believe in school and home working together effectively, for the benefit of all our children.
At the heart of this is the provision of a safe and happy learning environment for all our pupils. A sense of community and belonging, with pride in self and school is key to this.
Executive headteachers Mrs J Askey-Brown and Mrs J Wetherell with to share with you, the many positive things other professionals have said about Salmestone. All of us at Salmestone are very proud of our continuing journey and we hope you are too. Onwards and upwards!
