Whether you are reading this as a prospective visitor, pupil, parent or carer, we offer you a very warm welcome from everyone at Brayton Church of England Primary School and hope your association with the school is a happy and prosperous one.

Brayton has wonderful people in it and together we are taking this much-loved school onwards and upwards.

Our school community is built upon strong values for learning within a distinctive Christian ethos. Our children and our Christian values are at the heart of everything we do. We celebrate every child‛s unique qualities and achievements, encouraging every child to succeed. We do this within a spirit of collaboration where ‘together we shine as one‛ and the children come first.

We are a forward thinking and ever growing school. We always seek to improve and aspire to provide for our children and every member of our school family the best opportunities possible to learn, grow and flourish.

Staff and children have to work very hard here but as we hope you will see, we try to make it fun and relevant. When you work with children – anything can happen – so we’ve learned to stay positive and keep smiling while embracing the fun!

There is always a lot going on and the children benefit greatly from the vibrant atmosphere of Brayton.

You will find a lot of information on this website but if you want to know more about us, please call us. Mrs Mansell or Mrs Butler from the admin team will answer your call. Alternatively please email admin@bp.starmat.uk

We are proud to share our school with you and you would be very welcome.

About us

Brayton is a Church of England Primary Academy catering for children from Nursery to Year 6 – 3 – 11 years.

We serve the village of Brayton and surrounding areas.

We currently have over 370 children on roll. We have a 26 place Nursery which is usually over-subscribed.

We are a split site school with Infants being housed in the Victorian side of the school and Juniors in the newer building.

We also have two mobile classrooms – one currently used for the Nursery class and one usually used for a Nurture Group – The Hive., but currently being used as a staffroom due to Coronavirus social distancing measures.

In the KS1 building, we have the Victorian Hall, a Discovery Suite for music and IT, Infant library, five classrooms, a Training Room, offices and meeting rooms.

In the KS2 building, we have the larger hall, seven classrooms, main school kitchen, offices and meeting rooms.

We have a large field with lots of play equipment and not one but four playgrounds! In addition, we have extra play areas dotted around and a special enclosed one for the Foundation Stage Unit.

Our school is currently divided up into 11 classes. As we are growing in number all the time we need to remain flexible and we review these class groupings annually.

Currently we have mixed classes in FS/Y1 and in Y5/6. Our teachers are talented and flexible enough to plan teaching successfully in any given configuration – it’s what they do!

Our school is led by Mrs Robinson, our Headteacher. She is ably assisted by all staff, all Governors, all children and all parents – we are all leaders at Brayton. Sometimes we lead – sometimes we follow – we capitalise on everyone’s strengths, everyone’s skills and that way we constantly build capacity to continually improve our school. We are a true family community.

We feel that Brayton is a happy and friendly place to be. We want our children to enjoy learning in a safe and supportive environment. We put a lot of emphasis on our school values and having fun as well as working hard and helping every child to achieve in all aspects of school life.
