Salesbury C.E. Primary School is proud of its history and traditions, but it is always looking for ways to improve standards in the education we provide.
The school, with infant and junior departments on a single site in Lovely Hall Lane, Salesbury, created a new piece of history in the summer 1994 when it was awarded grant-maintained status. It has now returned to Lancashire Education Authority.
Salesbury School is a Church of England school, and aims to foster a Christian atmosphere, including daily Christian worship and prayer, within a happy, secure and caring environment.
Our purpose is:
- To educate all pupils intellectually, morally, socially, aesthetically, physically and spiritually within a school firmly based on Christian principles.
- To enable each child to grow in each of these areas, and to achieve fullness of life through discovering and developing his or her talents.
- To stimulate in each child a sense of curiosity and excitement about the world, and to encourage him or her to seek for faith, truth, honour, meaning and purpose in life.
- To provide a caring ethos based on the Christian ideals of commitment, self-reliance, responsibility and respect for others, embracing all who work or learn at the school.
- To foster links between home, church, school and the wider community.
The school is arranged into classes of children with similar ages. Some classes contain children from more than one year group. Each class has its own teacher and is supported at various times in the week by either a Teacher's Assistant or Nursery Nurse depending on the children's ages.
A variety of teaching methods are used according to the subject or topic. Each teacher acts as a subject specialist to assist other colleagues.
takes away, it is the policy of this school to:
Reflect the needs and aspirations of all children whatever their sex, social, economic and cultural background and ensure their entitlement and access to the whole range of educational opportunity.
Develop lively enquiring minds, and the ability to question, to argue rationally and to apply themselves to tasks.
Promote a reasoned set of attitudes, values and beliefs and ensure that the emphasis on the Christian faith reflects the school's anti-racist and multi-cultural approach.
Develop co-operative and inter-personal skills by learning to share common objectives through working in small groups.
Develop self-awareness, a sense of self respect and sensitivity towards others in order to contribute to the well-being and welfare of others, the school and the community.
Inspire personal achievement and success through the appreciation of human excellence in the arts, science, sport, the care of others and the environment.
Endeavour to provide a balanced curriculum which satisfies the needs of the above whilst fulfilling the requirements of the national curriculum.
Shape the school curriculum in such a way as to meet the aims of the national curriculum.
Music, sport and other interests feature strongly in school life.
Older pupils have a chance to join the school clubs, including football and netball.
The school has football and netball teams which have achieved considerable success in recent years.
All pupils have the opportunity to learn to play the recorder from the Top Infants onwards. Junior pupils can join the school choir, and recorder groups. Some learn a variety of musical instruments with peripatetic teachers who come into school. Fees are charged for this tuition. Instrumental Music tuition is after school on Mondays.
