SWAT Cluster

As part of the this year’s S.W.A.T. (School’s Working and Acheiving Together) Launch Day our S.W.A.T. Ambassadors took part in fun and memorable activities around the theme of ‘World War One’. The children explored issues surrounding WW1 through drama, music and dance workshops delivered by specialist practitioner(s).

Our cluster is a ‘Partnership of Schools’ who are genuinely committed to collaborative working, whilst retaining their individual ethos. By working together we strive to create a genuine partnership of that pupils, parents, staff, governors and the local community are proud to be a part of.
