At Swillington Primary School, our mission is to provide a transformative cradle-to-career education that allows our children to enjoy lives of choice and opportunity.
All the teachers are qualified to teach across the Primary Age Range (5-11).
Sometimes teachers will move to teach a different year group – this is important for their continuing professional development.
Our teachers are highly reflective practitioners and engage in Instructional Coaching. Teachers and Teaching Assistants also access an observation tool called IRIS. IRIS allows practitioners to record, reflect and refine their own practice.
All the teachers are qualified to teach every National Curriculum subject and Religious Education.
The school employs several teaching assistants who provide invaluable support to children at the teacher’s direction.
The curriculum is enriched by many additional and extracurricular activities – the children are often taught by other adults, such as sports coaches, actors, and workshops provided in specific subjects such as design and technology, and history.
