Swans school invites children to join Early Years on a non-selective basis. Through Quality First Teaching, all children are given the opportunity to learn and thrive in order to reach their potential. If children wish to join Swans Primary in Keystage 2, they are invited to visit, giving us an opportunity to see if our school is the right choice for them.
During this time, we look at the whole child, not only the academic side: non-verbal skills are assessed as well as mathematical ability and speaking, reading and writing in English. Our thorough screening on entry to Keystage 2 means that the transition of children into their new class is as smooth and easy as it could possibly be.
However, above all, “Nihil sin Labore” – the school motto – underpins our expectations for every child entering Swans School.
