Welcome

Bayton C of E Primary School is a church and community school which has served the area for over 140 years.

We hold Christian principles at the centre of our policy and practice.  We promote an ethos of adhering to traditional values, whilst also being forward-looking, which we believe makes our school special.

 

In our school we aim to provide a welcoming, happy and secure environment where every child can feel that they are respected and their individual needs are taken into account.

1

Our mission statement is to Be the Best That You Can Be. We believe that all children can succeed and have talents with which they can excel.

2

Curriculum

All children receive a well-balanced, broad-based curriculum, centred round the National Curriculum subjects and Religious Education.

There is a strong emphasis upon the core skills of English, Maths, Science and Computing which give access to all other areas of learning.

3

The Foundation subjects are Design Technology, Art, Music, Physical Education, History and Geography. We also provide R.E. and P.S.C.H.E. (Personal, Social and Health Education and Citizenship). Years 2 - 6 receive one session of French a week.

We believe that there are aspects of learning such as independence, collaboration, responsibility and self-confidence which are essential for children to develop, not only as pupils but as members of society. Moral, social, spiritual and cultural developments have a high profile in our school community. We promote a positive and succeeding ethos which we believe enhances self-esteem and self-motivation.

Extra Curricular

Staff run after-school clubs for one hour after school. These may be craft, sport-based, indoor or outdoor activities.

Every pupil Y1-Y6 is welcome to attend these clubs. There is no charge for these activities with the exception of a small donation towards cookery ingredients.

We also offer Booster classes in Maths and English for our Year 5 and 6 pupils as a support for KS2 SATS. Lunch-time activities may be sport, gardening, art or music based. We have a small and growing choir.

5

We employ a member of staff as a play leader specifically to organise lunch-time games on a rota basis. Each year we run a cycling proficiency club for Y6 pupils. We play other small schools at football and enter teams in the Cleobury area netball league.

Environment

Our school is situated in an area of outstanding beauty which is designated as a conservation area.

We are fortunate to have playing fields, gardening areas, a wooded area with a trim trail in addition to a large playground.

We use the outdoors in our teaching and learning, promoting enjoyment of the natural environment and a sense of custodianship for the future.

We have a Forest School area on our school field where children spend time, in all weathers, doing challenging activities and building features, such as shelters and bridges, as well as lighting fires for cooking and learning to use tools safely.

7

Forest School gives children the chance to work co-operatively, learn new skills and build up confidence in an exciting, safe, outdoor environment.

8

Community

All parents are automatically members of the PTA. This supports educational, social and fund-raising activities and is an invaluable partner in our school community.

We have a great many adult helpers and work placements in school and we always welcome new volunteers.

9

We place great importance on links outside the school and believe that the children gain much from this contact.

It helps them to look outwards whilst at the same time bringing interest and stimulus to the school.

Members of the local community are invited to concerts and services held in church. We have introduced Open the Book into our collective worship.

Each week, a small team of community members, both lay and church, come into school to share a Bible Story with the children.
