Executive Headteacher: Mrs Elizabeth Pettersen MA, NPQH As headteacher of this historic primary school, I am very pleased to welcome you to Saltwood. I am immensely proud to be leading this school through the next exciting phase of its history. We have an excellent reputation in the area and there is much to commend Saltwood School.
Our children are delightful to work with and I firmly believe that everyone is special. We have 222 pupils, 7 classes and a distinguished educational record.
We are a high attaining and successful school with a strong Christian ethos set in the delightful Saltwood community with close links to St Peter and St Paul Church, Saltwood. Established in 1723 the present school was opened in 1968 and in 1999 and 2006 underwent further development. The staff and governors of the school are committed to providing all pupils with a secure and caring environment in which they develop lively and enquiring minds, confidence and skills. Our outstanding track record is exemplified in consistently good attainment for all children. In 2012 all children gained Level 4 and above in reading and maths in KS2 SATs and 97% gained Level 4 and above in writing. The school gained the highest number of Level 5 s in all subjects in Shepway. In July 2007 we gained an Outstanding Ofsted report and in July 2012 an Outstanding Section 48 report (our Church School inspection).
The school federated with Bodsham in November 2009.
