Staff at recently-opened Abbey Farm Educate Together Primary are sharing their vision for the school and welcoming its growth over time.

Staff say that the vision for Abbey Farm ET Primary is to create a school where every child is valued, nurtured, developed to the best of their ability.

Located on Diamond Crescent, Abbey Farm in Swindon, the school opened back in September of 2022. 

Abbey Farm ET Primary is a two-form entry school with 60 children in each year group. Back in September, the school opened its pre-school and reception classes. 

Staff say Abbey Farm will grow gradually by opening an additional year group each year, until it is full in 2028.

The pre-school and primary establishment team prides themselves on offering:

  • A unique ethical curriculum

  • A place where no child is an outsider

  • A well-resourced indoor and outdoor learning environment.

Abbey Farm staff added that they are also proud of the school's curriculum. 

A spokesperson for the school said: "We actively question whether what we do is for the children’s learning and welfare. We believe that a commitment to high academic standards is possible alongside a creative and ethical curriculum. The ‘Learn Together Curriculum’ is embedded in everything we do and integrated with the National Curriculum."

Abbey Farm is said to have adopted a 'holistic approach' for its environment, which aims to enable children to continue their education upon leaving, and to 'develop into the very best they wish to be.'  

The school's spokesperson added: "Our committed staff team strive to provide our children with the happiest and best education possible. We look forward to welcoming visitors to our school so that we can share our exciting learning environment and ethos whilst sharing our vision for Abbey Farm Educate Together."

Abbey Farm ET Primary's community is said to consist of 'more than just children and staff.' The primary school's team say the community extends to pupil's parents and families, and local residents within the Abbey Farm estate. 

The school's spokesperson continued: "We believe all play an important part in partnership with us to enable the school to integrate and support both our children and the local community. Something that is growing by the day."
