Our school has a reputation for providing a positive, caring environment, which promotes and celebrates endeavour and the pursuit of excellence.
Welcome to the Sale Primary School website. Our school prides itself on being a supportive, friendly and caring school. We have a happy relaxed community atmosphere that fosters a strong and active partnership between students, staff, parents and the local community.
The traditional Maypole Dance, performed each year since 1893 by senior students at the annual Garden Party, symbolises the link between our school and the community that has developed over a number of generations.
The warm feeling of "belonging to 545" is evident in the children, parents and teachers working cooperatively in the education of our children.The school is supported by an enthusiastic Parents & Friends Group, a School Council with active sub-committees in Finance, Buildings & Grounds and Curriculum, and a Junior School Council. Our school has a reputation for providing a positive, caring environment, which promotes and celebrates endeavour and the pursuit of excellence.
