Salisbury North Primary School was established in 1953. Our community is a strong, proud and loyal group where many parents attended this school as students themselves. A strong focus on a range of innovative literacy practice operates across the school. These programs incorporate whole school assessment of reading and writing, literacy focus time and English as a second language
We also focus on oral language development in the early years. We have ‘New Arrivals’ classes to accommodate families from overseas and specialist teaching areas including; Technology, Science, PE/Health and Performing Arts. Extensive pastoral care programs are in place for students and families and are supported by school counsellors and a pastoral care worker.
We offer many opportunities for students to develop leadership skills through 3 student forums – Yard, Others in Need and Whole School Activities.

We acknowledge this land where we play and work is the traditional lands of the Kaurna people and we respect their spiritual relationship with their country; the land, the creatures, the plants and waterways.
We also acknowledge the Kaurna people as the custodians of the Adelaide region and that their cultural and heritage beliefs are still as important to the living Kaurna people today. We respect their Elders past, present and future.
