The International School Award 2021-24
We are very happy to announce that Swallowfield has been awarded the British Council’s prestigious International School Award (2021-2024) in recognition of its work to bring the world into the classroom.
The International School Award celebrates the achievements of schools that do exceptional work in international education.
As a school, we are very proud of our own internationalism amongst our pupils, but also take every opportunity to bring the global world into Swallowfield, thus expanding the children’s horizons, developing our values further and learning how to be global citizens.
Welcome Back Swallowfield!
Welcome back to a new and exciting year ahead!
We look really forward to seeing you all and meeting new faces around the school. We would like to give a big welcome to Mrs Galloway who will be teaching in Foundation this year opposite Miss Papworth.
Harry Potter Day
On Thursday 24th June, Swallowfield took part in the National Harry Potter Reading event.
It is safe to say the children loved it! It was quite a surreal experience to walk down the corridors and see little wizard and witches, goblins and ghosts all learning their phonics and practising their times tables.
Throughout the day, the children enjoyed Wizardry Word challenges, making wands, creating their own Hogwarts/Swallowfield House Badges and even reading the first Harry Potter book together.
Thank you for all of your support from home to make this a fantastic and positive day for the children.
The Great Swallowfield Bake Off
The staff at Swallowfield took part in the Great Swallowfield Bake Off with some very special guest judges. From bread week to showstoppers, we are proud to announce the entire mini-series is now available to view on our YouTube channel.
We also asked the children of Swallowfield to create their own bakes and enter photos of their bakes into the competition via Google Classroom/ Padlet.
It has been so exciting for the children to watch and bake along through the series.

Run 4 Fun
What a fabulous day of running. A total of 312 children took part in their running challenges today, from Busy Bees to Year 4. It was lovely to see so many smiling happy faces despite the damp weather. Well done everyone.

The Senior Leadership Team
Welcome back to School
We are very much looking forward to seeing you on Monday, our first day back to school for the Autumn Term. You and your children may be feeling a little anxious about the return to school after such a long time away but we would like to put your mind at ease and reassure you that all necessary steps are in place to keep the children happy and healthy as a new academic year starts up again. We have also been working hard to put together a recovery program that supports the children in the best possible way.
We would like to say a big, big thank you for all that you have done over the past few months. We know it has not been easy and appreciate your support through these difficult times.
It will be great to see all the children’s smiling faces again!
Please see attached the letter that went out on Thursday giving details on the return to school.
