Hitting the Mark at Sarum St Martin

by Michael Ford last modified 25 Mar, 2015 03:50 PM

St Martin's CE VA Primary School, Salisbury, has been rated 'outstanding' in a recent inspection.

The inspector praised the school for:

  • "Highly effective inclusion practices based upon the school’s Christian ethos, ensuring that every child is supported in achieving to the very best of their ability"
  • "The close team work between staff and governors which contributes directly to each pupil’s achievement through sharing knowledge of pupils’ capabilities, prior learning and understanding"
  • "Learners’ respect for diverse cultures and beliefs due to the school community celebrating Sarum St Martin’s ethnic and cultural diversity"
  • "Wise and reflective Christian leadership"

The number of children eligible for pupil premium is well above average, as is the proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs.

Approximately two thirds of the children on roll are from white British backgrounds, the remaining third representing a range of other ethnic heritages.

A fifth of the children have English as an additional language and pupil turbulence is much higher than average, due to a range of social factors.

The staff is stable and settled; the current Headteacher came to post in September 2013. The school is deeply valued by its community and numbers have risen steadily since the last inspection.
