Valuing individuals, aspiring and achieving together in faith

Welcome to St Swithun’s Church of England Primary Academy where every child is valued, encouraged to aspire, and challenged to achieve in a happy, stimulating, and secure environment rooted in a loving Christian faith.

For our children and staff, St Swithun’s is not just a school, but a real community of enthusiastic learners. We place great emphasis upon the well-being and personal development of every child and we strive to equip them with a curiosity and thirst for learning. We encourage our pupils to be knowledgeable, thoughtful, and to express themselves so that they can move on into the world with the confidence to embrace all the rich possibilities of their future lives.

We believe in listening to our children and encourage them to contribute to various aspects of school life through the Student Council, Sports Crew, Eco-Council and Ethos Team.

As parents or carers you are partners in your child’s journey through these really important school years. We will work closely with you to ensure that the time your child spends with us is the very best foundation for the next stage of their journey.

We welcome you to talk with our staff, walk round our school, and to get a feeling for what it would be like to be a member of the St Swithun’s School family.

Please feel welcome to contact school if you have any questions or would like to arrange a visit.

With warm wishes

Helen Thomas

Executive Headteacher
