About Swan Lane First School
Swan Lane First School is a popular school with most of the children living within the catchment area or the town of Evesham although some travel to school from outlying villages. There are currently 336 children on role and over a third of the children have English as an additional language.
There are 12 classes, 2 in each year group and the majority of the children at Swan Lane will go on to St Egwins Middle School.
The school’s grounds are beautiful and well maintained by our Site Manager and the children in Gardening Club. There is a Forest School Area that is used throughout the school, an area for reflection and an outside classroom. The school enters the Evesham in Bloom competition in which we have won a gold award for the last few years.
The school’s learning environment is bright and vibrant. There is evidence of high-quality displays that showcase and celebrate pupils’ work and also displays with helpful prompts to aid learning.
As well as many sporting clubs, we are able to offer many other extra curriculum activities such as Science Club, Choir, Gardening Club, Nature Club, Cygnet News, Chess Club and Polish Club. Some of the clubs are organised and run by the children.
Our School Council, Eco Warriors and Healthy Living Group work hard to raise awareness of many different issues and to represent the pupil voice in school. Our Enterprise shop runs at the end of each half term.
Theme days and weeks are regular features of the curriculum, providing enrichment across the whole school. There are events such as Healthy Living and Mindfulness, Year 2 Wedding, Maths Days, Science Days, Eco Week, and World Book Day.
