Welcome to Swalwell Primary School

VLUU L200 / Samsung L200

It is with great pride that I welcome you to our school website. We hope this gives you a flavour of life in our school.

At Swalwell Primary School we aim to create a happy and inclusive learning environment where we work hard and make lasting friendships.

The school is at the heart of the community and aims to provide a safe, caring and respectful environment which enables pupils to develop academically, emotionally, physically, socially and spiritually whilst promoting fundamental British values. We provide a broad and engaging curriculum which allows individuals to develop their educational potential and skills for life.

It is our core belief that every child has the right to become the best they possibly can be. The children in our school are the future generation; it is a privilege to shape the future lives of our youngsters and instill in them the determination, resilience and self-belief needed to enable them to become life-long learners.

I encourage you to look through our website and welcome you to contact me should you require any more information or a look around our unique school. I am confident you will be overwhelmed by our supportive Governors, hard working staff and respectful, happy children.

‘Working together, learning together.’

Mrs R Hocking – Headteacher

CEOP – Stay Safe Online


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.
