About the school

Swillington Primary School is a foundation Primary School within the Leeds Education Authority, catering for children in the age range 3 – 11.

The village of Swillington is situated on the edge of the Leeds Metropolitan area and covers 2625 acres. The village has a long history, having been mentioned in the Domesday Book.

In 1994 the village celebrated its centenary. Swillington was a mining village and now has a mixture of Local Authority and private housing. The school population comes from a mixture of socio-economic backgrounds.

The present school was first occupied in May 2012.

BLP-logo2In September 2016 we became an Academy school along with Brigshaw High School and 5 other feeder Primary Schools. We are known collectively as The Brigshaw Learning Partnership. The Academy enables all the Schools to work together to achieve our shared vision for raising achievement. We agreed to work together more closely because a strong partnership will achieve more for all our children and young people.

School Organisation

DSC_0141At present there are approximately 220 children on roll, including the children in our 52 place Nursery (Foundation 1).

The Nursery children are taught by a full-time teacher with full time Teaching Assistant support.

Mrs Morgan is the Team Leader for the Foundation Stage.

The teaching of the Nursery Class is shared by Mrs Morgan and Mrs Hemsworth.

No class in Key Stage 1 will exceed 30 in number.

The organisation of pupils in our schools is determined by their date of birth. For example, a child born on the 31st August may be in Year 2, while a child born the next day, on September 1st would be in Year 1.

You will be notified of any changes in staffing and organisation and will be kept informed during the year about changes and developments in the school.
