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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
