At Swanland Primary School, our vision statement

‘Value, Nurture and Fulfilment through Support, Harmony and Praise’

is an integral part of daily life.  The everyday things that we do, such as Praise and Award assemblies, lunchtimes, playtimes, recognising and praising individual achievements, individual responsibilities and a wide range of cross curricular and curriculum enriching visits and visitors mean that the children at our school are encouraged to become caring, understanding and knowledgeable citizens.  Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural development of the children at our school is woven in to all we do. Through assemblies, whole school events, PSHCE lessons, circle time and across our whole curriculum, we value and provide opportunities for children to become good communicators, develop teamwork skills, make informed choices, be kind, caring and respectful of others. We encourage children to be active members of their community both locally, nationally and internationally through fundraising, planned curriculum, visits and visitors. The British Values of Democracy, Individual Liberty, Mutual Respect, Rule of Law and Tolerance of other faiths and beliefs are explicitly shared in assemblies, planned in to PSHCE lessons and interwoven in all we do. Staff plan their curriculum carefully, react to current events and work restoratively to ensure children's personal development and emotional wellbeing are at the forefront of all we do. Consequently, they are well equipped for the next stage of their education and to live life in the 21st century.  

At Swanland Primary School we pride ourselves on the delivery of a curriculum which provides children with an enriching, diverse and stimulating education.  Through carefully planned topics, themes and a variety of teaching styles, children receive a range of learning opportunities which will enable them to achieve the best possible progress and standards.  In turn this allows for all children to participate in learning which they enjoy.  Swanland’s approach to curriculum delivery ensures that pupils are encouraged to use their learning across a range of subjects and where possible from a first-hand experience.

Our Curriculum intent is to develop the whole child through the 5 areas (Creative, Progressive, Challenging and Accessible to All, Develops Curiosity for Learning, Meaningful and Encourages Skill Application Across the Curriculum) which are listed below.
