Welcome to Salusbury Primary School.
We are a happy, vibrant primary school in Queen’s Park with 680 children and 100 staff who between them speak 42 languages and have a wide range of skills and talents. We are very much a community school and embrace a long history of neighbourhood participation and value the role of parents and guardians in the education of their children.
We celebrate the place of all faiths, values and beliefs and work consistently to create a school family where everyone feels safe, happy and secure. We support and encourage all to reach their full potential, to seek the highest levels of attainment and celebrate every achievement. We deliver an innovative and creative curriculum and build self-belief and confidence. We broaden horizons, develop life skills and unlock opportunities for all. We are twinned with a school in Gambia, teach the International Primary Curriculum and have won a number of awards for our achievements in the arts, languages and sports.
Our children range in age from three to eleven and learn together in a beautiful refurbished Victorian building with sports court, playgrounds and outdoor green spaces. Our children are able to play, explore, actively learn, create and think critically in a safe and friendly environment. These are key features, which underpin learning and development across all areas and subjects and support the children to remain effective and motivated learners. We have a specialist teaching base where a variety of alternative therapies and sessions take place, Place 2 Be counseling service based on site and support a Dutch and Brazillian school to operate at weekends. On Sundays the school grounds host one of the largest Farmers Markets in London and a number of music, dance and community groups rent rooms throughout the school.
You are very welcome to visit us at any time or attend one of our open days or evenings.
Please contact the school office for further information.
Best wishes, Debby Rigby Headteacher
‘There is a strong ethos of effective teaching and learning and good behaviour. Pupils benefit from a rich and creative curriculum and say that learning is fun. Staff and parents are extremely positive about the school’s work and its leadership: creative, inspiring, fantastic and incredible are just some of the many positive words used by parents and staff.’
