Meet the Staff

Senior Leadership Team
Mr Michael Salisbury

Head Teacher & Designated Safeguarding Lead

I am delighted to lead the staff team at the Abbey school. I am passionate about providing high-quality primary education for all children in our care, challenging and supporting them along the way.

I have been the Head teacher and Deputy Head in other local schools and know the beautiful North Dorset area very well. Please say hello if you see me around the school!

As the DSL for the school, please contact me if you have any safeguarding concerns.

Mrs Sally Howard

Assistant Head & Deputy, Designated Safeguarding Lead Special Educational Needs and Inclusion Co-ordinator, SENCO

Mrs Howard began teaching at Abbey in 1997. Her role is an important one, helping us to ensure all pupils make progress and fulfil their potential, especially those whose needs or circumstances require adaptations or additional support. Her remit extends to individuals and groups, including disabled pupils, those who are academically more or less able, minority ethnic pupils, and many others.
