Ofsted Inspection
We are very pleased to tell you that Ofsted rated us as Good in our recent inspection on the 16th April.

The report highlighted that the children are cared for in a well –resourced, high quality environment.  All children make good progress at the Pre School and staff have a good understanding of how children learn and a secure knowledge of all areas of learning and development needs.

Three areas were highlighted by Ofsted to further improve to work to outstanding, which we will work on over the coming year.


We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff and committee for all their hard work, particularly over the last year, to help us achieve this excellent result.

Pre School Trip To Wheelgate Theme Park 17th June

 Don’t forget to fill in the slip at the bottom of the form, stating how many people are going, and if you are going on the coach and then return it with the money to Pre School by the 5thJune. Places on the coach are on a first come first served basis. Fingers crossed for a lovely sunny day!

Friends of Swanwick Pre School OR Business and Education Committee

Do you have a couple of hours to spare each month, to come along and help your child’s Pre School?  We always need parents to join one or both of our committees; lots of members will be leaving in September and it’s a great opportunity to get involved.

It’s a great way to meet new people, perhaps to learn a new skill and to help in your community.  Ask a member of staff if you are interested.

Getting ready for school

By now you will all know which school your child will be attending in September.
In order to help them get ready for the transition to big school it is important you help them gain some independence. Please can you let them practise putting on their own shoes, and coats, and to use their cutlery independently at meals times? This will be a huge benefit to your child when they start school.
Over the last 2 weeks the teachers and Teaching assistants from reception have been on a few visits to Pre School to meet the children. You will soon be receiving your letter from school detailing the dates and times of your visits. Swanwick Primary School uniform is available for you to check sizes before you place an order.
