Ask Mrs Mortimer

Our students love to come to Mrs Mortimer with a fantastic ideas for events and how to make their experiences here at Saltergate even better. Please see some examples below.


Yr 3 Request new books - 16 March 2022


Bethany, a Year 3 student wrote this beautiful letter to Mrs Mortimer this week.

Bethany did her research on the author, found the books on amazon and chose three the class would like to purchase. We particularly loved the reasoning 'I think these books would be beneficial for Year 3 because we love a challenge and we are ready for another'

These books will be ordered and delivered to the classroom shortly!

Thank you, Bethany, for a wonderful letter.

Sleepover @ Saltergate

Year 5 have asked Mrs Mortimer if they can have a sleepover for Harrogate Homeless Project at school, students were asked to pitch their ideas and we are currently in the planning stages of the best ideas! 


Watch this space!! 


Christmas Wreath Stall

Bethany in Year 6 showed everything that is wonderful about our Saltergate children. Bethany asked Mrs Mortimer if she could set up a stall set up a stall selling handmade wreaths to raise money for Young Carers and our school.


Bethany raised approximately £80!


Thank you so much Bethany - you are a Saltergate Star! 


Non-Uniform Day - Friday 22nd October 2021



The girls in Year 6 sent me this email and I think it is a rather lovely idea!


Money to a charity

Dear Mrs Mortimer,


On Friday, since its half term next week, can we please save money for St.Michael's hospice/Place2Be (Improving children's mental health in schools) and can we come to school in  non-uniform. We hope you listen to us because people need money for charity so they can get better much  more quickly and stay safe from covid, cancer and more diseases that can do harm.


We hope you agree with us that this is important.


Yours truly Eva,Lily,Grace and Tallulah. 


So, on Friday 22nd October, we held a 'dress-down' day for a minimum donation of £1.

What a lovely end to the half term - thank you Year 6 girls for bringing this to my attention!
