Scawsby Saltersgate Junior School

Welcome to our website

About Our School


Saltersgate Junior School is located in Scawsby which is towards the north of the town of Doncaster, South Yorkshire.  The building, surrounded by ample playing fields and sharing a site with its feeder infant school, was erected in the early 1960’s.  It contains twelve classrooms, four year groups and a pupil population of around 360.  There are thirty-four children on the special educational needs register, of whom six have statements of need.  

The school serves a local community of mainly private housing but also draws approximately 40% of its number on roll from out-of-catchment districts.  This popularity leads to occasional over-subscription of places and classes are generally sized around thirty pupils.  There are no mixed age classes.

The school is very successful, its quality being established over many years, and there is a continued determination to seek even further improvement.
