Swillington Primary School is a foundation Primary School, catering for children in the age range 3 – 11.
The village of Swillington is situated on the edge of the Leeds Metropolitan area and covers 2625 acres. The village has a long history, having been mentioned in the Domesday Book.
In 1994 the village celebrated its centenary. Swillington was a mining village and now has a mixture of Local Authority and private housing. The school population comes from a mixture of socio-economic backgrounds.
The present school building was first occupied in May 2012.
In September 2016 we became an Academy school along with Brigshaw High School and 5 other feeder Primary Schools. We are known collectively as The Brigshaw Learning Partnership. The Academy enables all the Schools to work together to achieve our shared vision for raising achievement. We agreed to work together more closely because a strong partnership will achieve more for all our children and young people.
At present there are approximately 220 children on roll, including the children in our 52 place Nursery (Foundation 1).
No class in Key Stage 1 will exceed 30 in number.
The organisation of pupils in our schools is determined by their date of birth. For example, a child born on the 31st August may be in Year 2, while a child born the next day, on September 1st would be in Year 1.
You will be notified of any changes in staffing and organisation and will be kept informed during the year about changes and developments in the school.
