Staff

Meet 'Team Swaffield'

There are over 60 members of staff employed at the school ensuring that every child at Swaffield matters.

Every member of staff matters too and we think that we have created a happy and safe environment where everyone can thrive.

The number of staff deployed to a class will vary depending on the needs of the children. Some teaching assistants will work with just one class and will be there for the whole school day. Others will support in a variety of classes. Some will also be helping to supervise lunchtime and be joining in with activities and games in the playground.

The day to day running of the school, and strategic decisions that will affect the future, are made by the Headteacher with the help of her Senior Leadership Team.
