Nestling in the rolling North Devon Countryside, Swimbridge C.E. Primary School has been a centre for local education since the 1790s when it was established in the 'Old Schoolroom' adjacent to the Parish Church.

It occupied its present interesting Victorian building in 1866. This has since been extended and modified to provide a welcoming educational environment for children in the new millennium. In 2003 the school was further extended with a new admin block.

The school caters for children from the age of just under 5 to 11+. The 80 or so pupils are arranged into three classes, each with its own teacher, along with part time staff who further extend the curriculum and provide additional support.


Swimbridge School aims to provide a happy, secure and caring environment where each child has the opportunity to develop his, or her true potential.

We seek to develop in each child a sense of achievement, encouraging high expectations and self esteem within a framework which promotes attitudes of mutual respect and responsibility.

Christian values are built into the ethos and teaching. The school aims to give high priority to the spiritual and moral development of all in its care.

We see education as a partnership between children, staff, parents and governors and encourage the involvement of all families, and the wider community, in all aspects of the life of the school.


Every school has National Curriculum documents for each subject. These documents describe what teachers must teach at each key stage. The National Curriculum does not include detailed lesson plans for teachers. Schools and teachers draw up their own schemes of work and lesson plans based on the National Curriculum. Teachers will plan these lessons, taking account of their pupils' needs. Schools also decide for themselves which textbooks and other teaching materials to use. At Swimbridge we have a long established curriculum-rolling programme designed to ensure that all pupils are exposed to all aspects of the National Curriculum, and more. We believe children need a broad and balanced, enjoyable, curriculum based as much as possible on creativity and the acquisition of skills. With recent national demands this has not always been easy to provide. Our emphasis on field work in the Humanities, exploration through play (especially for younger children), swimming, creative use of computers, music, maypole dancing and the like indicate the direction we are going.
