 Our Ethos

Providing Challenge for all in a Caring Community

Our Vision

At Claytons, we aim to become an outstanding school that is an integral part of the local community. The school prepares the children for a rapidly changing world by equipping them with the skills that will allow them to be:

  • successful learners
  • creative thinkers
  • reflective individuals
  • responsible citizens
  • and have a respect for core values of honesty, loyalty, fairness and compassion.

Developing these skills is the corner stone of the education we offer.
At Claytons, we want children to experience success today and be prepared for the challenges of tomorrow.

Our Aims and Objectives

At Claytons Primary School we provide a quality education in a happy, safe and challenging environment in which all children can achieve their full potential.

The school’s curriculum is designed to facilitate this overriding aim and considers children’s present and future needs both within the education system and in society as a whole.

The general aims of the school are in line with those of the Local Education Authority and are as follows:

i)          To help pupils develop lively, enquiring minds, the ability to question and argue rationally and to apply themselves to a variety of tasks.

ii)         To help pupils acquire knowledge, skills and attitudes relevant to their future lives in a rapidly changing world.

iii)        To help pupils to use language and number and to communicate effectively.

iv)        To help pupils develop respect for religious and moral values, and tolerance of other cultures, religions and ways of life.

v)         To help pupils to understand the world in which they live, the interdependence of people on each other, on groups and nations.

vi)        To help pupils understand and appreciate past and present human achievements and aspirations.

vii)       To provide an environment in which self-confidence, satisfaction and personal fulfilment are developed and encouraged throughout their school life.

Staff, parents and governors are very proud of our school. We welcome visits from prospective parents, so please ring and make an appointment.
