Welcome to Swainswick CofE Primary School

We are a caring, friendly and successful rural school.


At Swainswick we provide a nurturing and stimulating environment for learning, where children grow and thrive in a supportive atmosphere of high expectations.


Through our Christian values and strong partnership between children, parents, staff, governors and the wider community, we believe that children must be happy to become confident learners.


 Learning is fun, creative and shared.

Our broad and balanced curriculum provides learning opportunities which are creative, exciting and challenging. Through our school code, safety, caring, achievement, resilience and friendship, together with our growth mindset philosophy, we support our children to be the best they can be. This enables the children to become confident, successful and independent learners, with skills they can apply in their learning through life and rise to every challenge. 


We are very proud of our children; they enjoy learning, they are supportive of each other, they are polite and respectful, they work hard and make good progress.


We hope you find the website useful. Please contact us if you have any further questions, or would like to visit the school.
