William Morris Primary School Opens

September 12, 2019

William Morris Primary School opened its doors on Friday 6th September 2019, to their first cohort of Nursery and Reception children.

Justin Tomlinson, the local MP and Kevin Parry, the Mayor of Swindon, received the honour of officially opening the school and cutting the ribbon. The ceremony welcomed the pupils of the school along with their families, the local residents of Tadpole Garden Village, members of the council and members of staff from The Blue Kite Academy Trust. Gary Evans, CEO of The Blue Kite Academy Trust said, “We wish to give the children the best chances in life and the best start to education that we can possibly give.”

The guests of the ceremony had the pleasure of listening to the choir from schools across the Trust. Children from Abbey Meads Community Primary School, Catherine Wayte Primary School, Ferndale Nursery and Primary School and Ruskin Junior School sang various songs to all, providing such an uplifting atmosphere. The children had the opportunity to get their face painted, make a personalised keyring and plant a seed of a flower, linked to their classroom name.

Jo Fraser, Headteacher at William Morris Primary School said, “Our opening day was a truly fantastic event and we were so pleased to see so many people attend. The children and their families had the opportunity to visit their classroom and see the school, before their official start date. It was lovely for us to see the children dressed in their school uniform and so excited about starting at William Morris Primary School.”
