Our new website - a background
Welcome to our new school website. We thought you might like to know a little bit about the different parts of our website and what it all means.
You will notice a building at the top right of the screen, just below the sun. This is the 1934 building of the Liverpool Orphanage, after its move from Myrtle Street to Childwall. When ChildwallChurch of England Primary School was first established in 1953, it was in this building that it was based, on the ground floor. The school remains the responsibility of the Trustees of Salisbury House, successors to the original 1840s foundation, and we felt it was important to represent this heritage in the website. The Trustees are represented through their significant role forming a majority of our school governors, providing specialised support and advice and sponsoring awards and prizes in recognition of the achievements of the school's pupils.
Eventually, the Orphanage building was replaced with a new, purpose built school, a photograph of which appears at the bottom of the website. The school has been extended significantly in recent years, most recently with the addition of two new classrooms, in readiness for the increase in pupil numbers which has been taking place since the school became two form entry in September 2009.
There is still evidence of Salisbury House in the current school. In the infant playground, there is a flagpole which is situated on an octagonal stone base. The octagonal navigation
buttons on the left hand side of the screen echo this feature of the school.
Finally, you will notice the Bible, cross and ICHTHUS emblems at the bottom left of your screen. These are important Christian symbols, which reflect the school’s Christian ethos, lived out strongly in every aspect of our school’s life.
