Welcome to St Swithun’s Catholic Primary School with St Swithun’s Sunbeams Pre-School. We hope that our school website gives you an insight into our happy, friendly, successful school.

Our mission statement is ‘Love one another as Jesus Loved us’ and is modelled by the whole school community, and demonstrated through our mutual respect and love for each other, God’s creation and our drive to do our best in all we do.

This is underpinned by our vision; all children are happy, resilient and independent leaners with a strong motivational drive to fulfil their potential. We believe that every child has the entitlement to an aspirational curriculum which sets high expectations for all. Our programmes of learning provide rich experiences, build a depth of knowledge and equip children with the skills to be lifelong learners.

At St Swithun’s Catholic Primary School, we model excellence in everything we do. This begins with positive and respectful relationships where every member of our school family is valued. We develop the whole child giving the skills to positively contribute to their community. We have a highly skilled and knowledgeable team who collaborate effectively with pupils, parents, governors, diocese, church and other stakeholders to give our children the very best start in their learning journey.

We believe this can be achieved by working closely with our families who are the first and most important educators of their children. The staff and governors of St Swithun’s School, therefore, foster and encourage an open and supportive partnership between home, school and parish so that together we can help each child to develop in a happy, secure, and caring atmosphere.

We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website and that you find any information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact us if you require any additional information.
