Dear Saffron Green Community
I am very excited to introduce myself as the Saffron Green Primary School Headteacher.
Many of you will already know that I began my journey at Saffron Green back in 2013 as a newly qualified teacher. I worked as an Early Years and Key stage 1 teacher with many of the children still here today. After 6 years working my way to Assistant Headteacher, I decided to take my career international in 2018. During my time in the Middle East, I lead a multilingual International school for 2 years and broadened my experiences both personally and professionally. Although it was a fantastic opportunity, after spending two years away from Saffron Green, I quickly realised how unique and wonderful this school really is so made plans to return in 2020. After a year as Key Stage 2 lead, I felt it was time to follow the Saffron Green ethos and aim high myself.
I have always been greatly inspired by the vision at Saffron Green and my personal leadership vision is to extend the principle of community further. My aim is to drive school success alongside yourselves as parents and carers to allow each child to discover their innate potential. In valuing each other I hope to ensure children are provided with the very best platform of foundational primary education to take them forward so that they aim high and can live their best lives.
Gifting children with a love for learning, creativity and the confidence to make positive choices in future life is key and through shaping our teaching we aim to bring the best out in all of the children.

As you all know, I will be taking maternity leave over the next two school terms returning in January 2025! I am been overwhelmed with the amount of support from the wonderful community and look forward to seeing you all again next year.


I would like to introduce Mr Barron who will looking after Saffron Green as the Headteacher in my absence. He is thrilled to be joining the team and looks forward to meeting you all.


Kindest Regards,


Miss Salsbury

Come and meet the team of 2023-2024

A huge thank you to everyone who attended our 2023 Christmas Fair!

We wish you all a very Merry Christmas!

It is finally up! The designs from the children at Saffron Green Primary School have been painted onto the hoarding outside the flats by local legend-artist Lee Bennion. The stunning tribute to the survivors of the Balmoral Drive fire is capturing hearts all over The Wood. It encapsulates the spirit of how our town has come together through adversity. Thanks so much to Lee, to the school, to all the children and their families, to Clarion for granting permission and to 6 year-old Ava who first asked how she and her schoolmates could help... in her words “to bring happiness to the families that lost their homes.”
Take a look at our short documentary “We All Stand Together” which recounts the story. A huge thank you to the producer, Counsellor Dan Ozarow!

Sky Studios Elstree is an amazing new television and film production space based in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire. It will have 13 sound stages set across 27.5 acres and become home to some of the biggest productions in the world. Sky have already opened their doors to the first production, Wicked, starring Ariana Grande, and there’s lots more to come.

The best bit? Saffron Green are now part of it! The children were asked to create designs that tell us what they think TV will look like in 100 years. All of their designs were added to a special time capsule that was buried on site not to be opened for 100 years! Three of our Year 5 children got to be part of the time capsule burial which took place on Friday 13th January. 


Boreham Wood FC’s Manager Luke Garrard and select players this afternoon visited the ‘Unity’ mural at the site of the Balmoral Drive fire in Borehamwood, a major building fire that has left 21 households without their homes and possessions. The mural has been described as a ‘Beacon of Hope’ by those affected.

Pupils at nearby Saffron Green Primary School wanted to know how they could help and submitted drawings and messages of hope and solidarity with the survivors, which became a 50-feet long unity mural.

To learn to read and write well,

To be good at maths,

To be helped and supported with their learning,

To learn about other cultures,

To learn well so that they can have a good job,

To be a kind and caring person,

To be a healthy person,

To be a role model for others,

To learn to be a good friend,

To be able to be themselves,

To have friends and have fun,

To discuss their problems and worries.

 Our broad and balanced curriculum is personally written to ensure that these outcomes are met by all children.  All staff and governors at Saffron Green are proud to say that we work effectively, together, to ensure that through a culture of continuous development, we remain a place where everyone can learn and achieve together.
