Swanage Primary School sits proudly on the Jurassic Coast World Heritage coastline and is located at the heart of the Swanage community. We have a longstanding good reputation, being surrounded by supportive parents and people who value our school and its traditions. Our school is welcoming with friendly and approachable staff who appreciate each child as an individual. The school is one of very few non-denominational primaries in Purbeck, and we value the flexibility and the open-mindedness this brings. We all strive for academic confidence and excellence.
The aim of our successful school is to inspire all our children to reach their full potential whether it is academic, musical, artistic or sporting excellence. We want our primary school to be known as a creative and inspirational school – a place where all children thrive whatever their ability. We intend our children to contribute positively to the community and to be known for being enquiring, responsible and respectful.
Leaving 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.
Through our inclusive approach, our children will be treated consistently with kindness, respect and fairness. This will be reflected in high expectations of behaviour for and by everyone. We are committed to creatively providing opportunities that inspire and encourage our children, appreciating all their unique needs. In our school, children will be happy, valued individuals who are encouraged to be confident, curious and resourceful learners. They will learn in stimulating and exciting ways in a vibrant, inviting, enriching and spacious environment. Everyone’s views will be valued and listened to with, wherever practical, children taking an active role in their learning and in making decisions that affect them
We understand that children get one chance at primary schooling. It is our responsibility and privilege to provide the best for them. We will continue to be proud of our fabulous school, our children and their achievements.
