Creativity and Learning
Welcome to Swalwell Primary School
At Swalwell Primary School we work together to promote learning and achieve the highest standards for every child through high expectations and high quality teaching.
We provide an education that is enjoyable, inclusive, stimulating and challenging and which allows individuals to develop their educational potential and skills for life.
The school promotes fundamental British values and is at the heart of the community and provides a safe, secure and respectful environment which enables pupils to develop emotionally, physically, socially, spiritually and academically.

The internet can be great fun. You can chat to your friends, play games and learn about new things. But sometimes things happen which can make you upset. People may say mean things which make you feel sad, or you may see something that you don’t like.
If this happens, you must remember it’s not your fault.
TELL AN ADULT YOU TRUST if you are upset or worried about something that has happened to you. They can help you to report it to CEOP.
If you feel in danger phone 999 to speak to the police.
They will make sure you are safe.
