Our lovely school is sadly closed at the moment. We are closed to all because our buildings are having a couple of really deep cleans. Some of us have been very poorly with coughs, temperatures, colds and sore throats over the last few days and if it is because of the virus, we don’t want to spread it any further.

The children have all been sent lots of work to be getting on with and this website also has a lot of home learning ideas. Teachers are in touch with families on a daily basis while we are closed.

After the school is cleaned and safe to enter again, we hope to be able to offer childcare for key worker’s children again. All our COVID-19 communications are under the ‘Latest News’ tab.

Stay safe and take care.

Welcome to our new website – launched 25th November 2019.

A warm welcome from all of us here at Brayton Church of England Primary School.

Headteacher – Mrs Rachel Robinson since September 2018

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 (Voluntary Controlled) 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 as we develop it further but if you want to know more about us, please call in and see us. Mrs Mansell, Mrs Taylor or Mrs Butler from the admin team will answer your call. 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 348 children on roll. We have a 26 place Nursery which is currently 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 cabins – one used for Nursery and one used for a Nurture Group – The Hive.

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 Nursery.

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

Currently we have mixed classes in FS/Y1 and in Y3/4. 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 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.
