Welcome from the Headteacher

Drayton Church of England Junior School was formed in September 2007 following the reorganisation of schools in the Norwich area and serves the communities of Drayton and Thorpe Marriott.

As a Church of England Voluntary Controlled school we promote Christian values, and aim to encourage pupils to make a positive contribution to, and take a responsibility for, both the local and wider communities around them.

Drayton Junior School has a long tradition of being a caring and successful school, with high quality provision and outcomes at its heart. In fact the school operates around its C.A.R.E values; Cherishing each individual; Aiming for excellence in teaching and learning; Relationships built on mutual respect and Experiences that enrich lives.

We constantly strive to achieve high standards for all pupils, both in terms of their personal development, well-being, and academically. This is supported by our child centred approach; a focus on everyone being responsible for their learning; our broad and balanced curriculum and a range of wider learning opportunities aimed at developing the whole child.

We work hard to create a sense of community in our school and all staff, children and governors understand the role they play in making the school a positive place to be.  As such, we offer a wealth of experiences and expect children to become progressively more independent and responsible members of these communities.

As a forward thinking, caring school, which wants the best for all its pupils, we work tirelessly so that children of all abilities can successfully meet our high expectations for learning and behaviour. We are extremely proud of Drayton Junior School and would be pleased for you to come and see it in action!
