Welcome

Coronavirus

Brayton C of E Primary School, along with all schools in the UK, is closed due to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak which is impacting across the world.

We are currently open to just a very small cohort of pupils who need some ongoing provision due to the nature of their need and also to provide childcare for some parents who are deemed key workers in order to respond to the Covid-19 outbreak.

Please feel free to visit our Social Media platforms, give us a ring or email the school, but refrain from physically visiting our wonderful school for the time-being.

We look forward to seeing our school community back together again very soon – we are missing every one of our pupils. Stay safe and enjoy lots of fun lockdown learning!

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.

There are a lot of items on Social Media – some of them are terrible, scaremongering, outrageous or just plain indecent. But some are uplifting – like this one – shared on Facebook and just a little food for thought………

What if they cancel the rest of the school year?!!!

If they cancel the rest of the school year, children would miss 3.5 months of education. Many people are concerned about them falling behind because of this. Yes, they may fall behind when it comes to classroom education…

But what if…

  • What if instead of falling “behind”, this group of kids are ADVANCED because of this? Hear me out…
  • What if they have more empathy, they enjoy family connection, they can be more creative and entertain themselves, they love to read, they love to express themselves in writing.
  • What if they enjoy the simple things, like their own backyard and sitting near a window in the quiet.
  • What if they notice the birds and the dates the different flowers emerge, and the calming renewal of a gentle rain shower?
  • What if this generation are the ones to learn to cook, organize their space, do their laundry, and keep a well run home?
  • What if they learn to stretch a pound and to live with less?
  • What if they learn to plan shopping trips and meals at home.
  • What if they learn the value of eating together as a family and finding the good to share in the small delights of the everyday?
  • What if they are the ones to place great value on our teachers and educational professionals, librarians, public servants and the previously invisible essential support workers like truck drivers, grocers, cashiers, custodians, logistics, and health care workers and their supporting staff, just to name a few of the millions taking care of us right now while we are sheltered in place?
  • What if among these children, a great leader emerges who had the benefit of a slower pace and a simpler life to truly learn what really matters in this life?
  • What if they are AHEAD?

Stay safe and take care. We can do it.

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.
