Dear Parents / Carers,
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Swanage Primary School. We are a school that is dedicated to developing the knowledge, skills and values for pupils to enable them to live fulfilling lives as global, national citizens of the future. We care for every child and this is reflected in the ethos that you will find here. We support the development of the whole child and we aim to foster key values for life. Our school principles state that:
We aim to inspire all our children to reach their full potential, whether they have academic, musical, artistic or sporting excellence or for that matter, any other talent, hidden or otherwise!
Our Aims for our Successful School
For all children to leave us as confident, well-rounded individuals who can easily adapt to the next phase of their education, our pupils will be able to make the right choices and form healthy relationships as they become responsible citizens of wider communities.
In our school, children will be happy, valued individuals who are encouraged to be confident, curious and resourceful learners.
The staff at Swanage Primary school make the education of their pupils their first concern. They promote the highest possible standards in work and conduct. When your child starts with us, you also become a valued partner in your child’s learning journey. We wish to work closely with you to ensure your child is able to thrive.
Our highly skilled and dedicated staff team create a welcoming and stimulating learning environment where your child will be supported and nurtured to achieve their potential. We use a broad and balanced curriculum to meet the needs of our pupils, enabling them to achieve their full educational potential and make progress in learning. Lessons are carefully planned to engage a range of different learning styles and actively promote pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. We are committed to creating learning opportunities, through our curriculum, that are engaging, challenging and fun. We aim to inspire all children by making learning irresistible!
Finally, we are proud and privileged to be leading your child through this exciting first stage of their school education. We will endeavour to ensure that their experience with us is the best that it can be.
Mr. Martin Godfrey
