Open days

Is your child starting at Ark Swift in September? Visit us!

Congratulations on gaining a place at Ark Swift Primary Academy! Ark Swift is a warm and friendly school where your child will be able to thrive and develop in a safe environment. We would like to invite  you to our Welcome Open Morning on Tuesday  20th June from 9:00am to 10:30am. This is a wonderful chance for you to meet with the Principal, Mr Marantz, our head of Early Years, Ms Burton and the reception teacher. This is also a great opportunity to ask any questions you may have about becoming part of the school community.  You do not need to bring your child to this meeting.

We will also be hosting a Stay and Play later this year on Tuesday 4th July from 9:00am to 10:15.  Please bring your child with you. This is an opportunity to find out a lot more about teaching and learning in reception at Ark Swift, as well as ask any further questions you may have. This session is aimed at allowing you and your child to explore the Reception classroom and spend some time with the teacher. Once the children are settled, there will also be a reading workshop for parents while the children are taking part in some exciting activities. The session will end with both parents and children coming together for a tea party!

We would really encourage you to attend both of these sessions as these will include lots of important information and will help your child to settle in September.


We look forward to meeting you and your child.

Please note that both families new to the school, and families of current nursery children should attend both sessions. 


Why attend?

Choosing a school for your child is important, so it’s right that you have everything you need to reach a decision.

One of the best ways to come to a decision about a school is to visit it. By visiting us, you can see for yourself what life at Ark Swift Primary is really like and how your child will fit into our school community.

Our Open Days typically include a tour of the school premises, and an informal chat with a senior member of our teaching team who can answer any questions you may have.

During the tour you will be able to meet teachers and see a lesson in action. You can also meet the principal, and hear more about his vision for our school. We will show you our facilities. We understand how reassuring it is to know what the dining halls, classrooms and even the toilets are like ahead accepting a school place.

At Ark Swift Primary we would be delighted to welcome you to our school and show you how we do things. We are dedicated to providing a safe, nurturing environment where your child has the opportunity to learn and thrive.

Visiting schools and applying for a place can be daunting and confusing, which is why we are here to help and to answer any questions you may have.
