Headteacher Welcome
Emma Lindsay

Welcome to Abbey Farm Educate Together Primary.

We were so excited to open our new school in September 2022 to the first cohorts of Reception Class and Pre-school. We now have a thriving pre-school, two reception classes and a year 1 class.  As an experienced Headteacher, with 20 years in education, mostly spent in the Swindon area, I am excited to develop a new school.

Educate Together shone out to me as a Trust I could fully align with. The opportunity to work with an organisation fully supportive of an all-inclusive education could not be missed. Very simply, I will create a thriving, caring, forward thinking school that meets the core principles of Educate Together whilst having unique Swindon elements, linked to our local community.

The school is part of the Educate Together Academy Trust and as such, we are an equality-based school where we live by the mottos ‘no child an outsider’ and ‘learn together to live together’.

Our school celebrates diversity, individuality and respects each child’s identity and that of their family equally. This enables us to develop the whole child, encouraging all children to excel. Our unique ethical curriculum and our core principles enable us to create a nurturing learning environment which develops the skills children need to be global citizens for the increasingly diverse society in which we live.

Abbey Farm is working towards becoming a Rights Respecting School and this education is embedded in all interactions and explicitly taught. This supports and underpins our unique ethical Learn Together curriculum that is taught throughout the school.

Equity Based

Through being equitable in our work, all children and staff will have equal access to their rights and, regardless of background, all will be equally respected.


All of our children have the right to a holistic world class education.  All our work aims to ensure that every child can make progress and achieve well in every aspect of their education.


Children are at the heart of every decision and activity.  Their voices are actively sought and listened to.  They play a lead role in shaping their education.


Our schools aim to be central to the communities they serve.  As such, we look for opportunities to give voice to and work in partnership with all stakeholders of the schools.
