Sambourne is a Church of England (controlled) Primary School with 186 pupils on roll. The original building was completed in 1835. Internally the whole school has been modernised whilst keeping the feeling of an old church school.
The original school building has two classrooms for Years 3 and 4 with two more joined to it which accommodate Years 5 and 6. A purpose-built three-classroom block houses our Key Stage 1 and Foundation Stage children. We have a hall for PE, assemblies, concerts and school dinners with reference and fiction libraries off, a playing field and a fenced safe play area for the Foundation Stage children.
Our connection with Christ Church is a close one: the church has three representatives on the school's board of governors who, together with their colleagues, regularly visit the school and involve themselves in its activities. In addition the Vicar of Christ Church (ex-officio foundation governor) and other church members, visit regularly to conduct assemblies and our children attend services there each term and at festival times.
The Governing Body has a general responsibility for the effective management of the school. We act within the framework as set by government legislation and by the policies of the Local Education Authority. We are also responsible for the policies of the school, including those relating to the delivery of the National Curriculum.
Each year the Governing Body updates the School Profile, available online at This outlines its work during the previous twelve months and incorporates a report on the school's finances.
The governors at Sambourne take a very active role in school life. They visit the school on a regular basis and are well supported by the staff in their tasks.
At present, Sambourne board of governors consists of:
1 Local Authority
1 Teaching Staff
3 Community
1 Support Staff
5 Parent
3 Foundation
The parents elect parent governors as vacancies arise.

We hope your son or daughter will be happy working here and that you enjoy your contact with us.

We accept the children in the September following their fourth birthday, on full and part-time arrangements. Children born between 1st September and the 31st March may start school full-time in September after the initial induction period. Children born between 1st April and the 31st August may start school part-time in the Autumn Term and full-time from January. Parents also have the right to defer entry to school until the term after the child's fifth birthday if they so wish. Alternative pre-school providers for the Foundation Stage of education (3 - 5 years of age) may be chosen. The child would then normally enter school in Year 1. Children remain at Sambourne until eleven years of age and the majority transfer to Warminster Kingdown Community School. Each class is accommodated in a separate room with its own teacher/s.

Towards the end of the term prior to your child starting school we arrange for him/her to visit the school for half-hour story time sessions. The children spend these afternoons with the teacher and, as far as possible, the other children they will be with when starting school. Provision is made for a third visit to be organised in liaison with the class teacher. Parents also have a chance to hear about the school and meet with each other during an evening meeting. The children are treated as full members of the school for their visit time. There is also an opportunity for you to have a home visit from the Foundation Stage class teacher so that everyone has a chance to get to know each other better and to prepare for that important start to school.
Sambourne School is inclusive for children with disabilities. Our curriculum is tailored to the needs of each child.

To help yourselves, and us, please ensure that all items of clothing that your child wears to school have nametags on them. PE Uniform: All Children need white shorts, purple T-shirts and plimsolls, and for Key Stage 2 training shoes.

All Key Stage 2 Children (Yrs. 3-6) need a one-piece swimming costume (no bikinis or fashion shorts).

Jewellery should not be worn apart from stud earrings. If it is worn, it is not the responsibility of the school.
Jewellery is easily lost by children and is also a safety issue in PE.
