Head's Welcome

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you on behalf of the staff, governors and children of Swinton Queen Primary School to our website.

The aim of our website is to give you some information about our school, our aims and objectives and our activities. We feel that it is very important that the feeling and atmosphere of the school is welcoming and one of caring and sharing for each other. We offer education from foundation stage to year six in which we hope to both challenge the children to reach their full potential and also to enjoy their life in school.

We believe that for children to achieve the highest possible standards, not only in their work but in their attitudes to life and their future as good citizens, it is necessary for them to be taught social skills and positive attitudes. We also believe that it is essential for staff, who work with the children, to be lifelong learners and this is why we are very committed to our professional development and achievement.

We aspire to a holistic curriculum, which is based on first hand experience. Every half term the children experience an educational visit (or visitor) as part of their topic. We offer a Breakfast Club each morning on the school site. We have a wide variety of extra curricular clubs available to the children. We have clubs in music and drama, gymnastics, gardening, cooking, Science, ICT and seasonal sports, as well as gifted and talented clubs in mathematics and art. Information about these are included in other parts of the website.

At lunchtime a wide variety of playground equipment is available as well as a football area and cargo net area. We hold several external accreditations of which we are very proud– Basic Skills Quality Mark; Artsmark Gold ; ICT Mark; Investors in People; Healthy Schools Award; Quality in Action. We are an ITT school working with York St. John University and Sheffield Hallam University.

We trust that you and your family find Swinton Queen Primary to be a welcoming and friendly environment and one in which your child will feel safe, secure and valued. If you would like any further information or are considering our school for your child and would like to arrange a visit, please contact the school office to arrange an appointment. We would be delighted to show you around.

Part of White woods Primary Academy

School only remains open for the children of parents who are key workers, children with an Educational Health and Care Plan and the families who work with a social worker.


If your child is one of the critical groups still attending, can we ask they come to school with a sun hat and sun cream already applied.

The water fountains in school are no longer in use. As a result all children will need to bring their own water bottle.

If you know your FS1 child will need a change of clothes, please can you ensure they bring them with them when they attend.

Please read the newsletter below regarding the possible return of children to school.
