Swaffield School



Art at Swaffield

Art is a very much loved subject at Swaffield and this is evident as soon as you enter the school grounds with artwork displayed in the playgrounds and throughout the school building.

Art topics are explored all through the school year but are particularly studied during our annual Arts' Week in June. Visit our Curriculum page which gives details of Swaffield's 2023/2024 curriculum for each year group.

We value our link with local schools and arts organisations, where we are invited to join them with their Art Projects. 

We're delighted to welcome specialist training from professional artists who visit from different arts organisations including Tate Britain, and the Totally Thames Festival "Ship of Tolerance" and children experience and learn from the artwork on display at galleries such as Tate Britain and the Saatchi Gallery. 

Arts Mark Gold Award 

Swaffield Primary School has been awarded the national award of ‘Arts Mark’ at Gold Level four consecutive times.  

We're very proud of this outstanding achievement and shows the high level of commitment the school and staff have towards Art, Music, Drama and Dance. Read more about us receiving the award here. 

Arts' Week

Every year at Arts' Week, children from Nursery up to and including Year 6 enjoy creating pieces inspired by the theme for the year. 

Visitor Comments from Arts' Evening:

This was a wonderful Arts' Evening! So diverse, so colourful! It really shows
what a well-rounded education Swaffield to give our children.

Without a doubt, the most talented, arty, brilliant, impressive,
and fantastic children I've ever seen! Bravo!

Arts' Week Creations

One of our Arts' Weeks focused on the theme "Positive Planet" during which our children created stunning pieces of art by items which may have otherwise been put in recycling.
