Discovery Learning

Thank you so much for choosing to be part of Discovery Learning at Saltergate School in September. ​​My name is Mrs Gemma Skurr, and I am the lead teacher of Discovery Learning.  ​​We are really excited about starting this special learning journey with you.​

Your First Days

If you are joining us, we are really looking forward to your child joining Discovery Learning.

We have new students joining Discovery Learning at Saltergate each term and once your child's place is confirmed, Admissions forms are completed and the Parental Funding Agreement is signed, we will be in touch to discuss settling in sessions.

We aim to welcome your child in for only a half day on their first day. We will then chat with you to decide how to go forward, if more settling in sessions are needed.

Please see the documents below with your child to learn more about Discovery Learning and our team who will be looking after you.


One session is £12.50, a full day is £25.
