About Swavesey Primary
Swavesey Primary School serves a rural catchment area, including the villages of Swavesey and Lolworth. We currently have 290 children working in 10 mixed age classes.
Our school provides a broad, challenging and practical curriculum within a warm, stimulating and imaginative environment to enable our children to enjoy their learning, as well as, develop the skills, attitudes and knowledge to become lifelong learners and achieve their full potential.
We work closely in partnership with our parents throughout the stages of our children’s school life and hope that parents enjoy feeling that they are an integral part of our school community

We are very proud to share the fantastic news that our Ofsted inspection recognised we provide a “good quality of education” for all our children and have “significant strengths”.
The inspectors describe us as a “happy and inclusive school” which “prepares pupils well for life in modern Britain” through a “creative and engaging curriculum”. The quality of teaching, learning and assessment are “good” and “teachers have good subject knowledge” giving “clear explanations”.
Our “Pupils are friendly, polite and well-mannered” and “appreciate their teachers” through “positive relationships”, which support making “good progress” and “are well-prepared for the next step of their education”. Inspectors say “Pupils enjoy coming to school and are proud to be a part of Swavesey Primary”.
Inspectors say leadership is “outward looking” ensuring a “sound understanding of the school’s strengths and areas needing further improvement” and that our “Parents hold the school in high regard”. In addition, “Parents are pleased with the early year’s provision” from starting preschool through to the end of reception, which inspectors say means children are “well-prepared for the challenges of Year 1”.
