About our School

Mrs Alison Read – Headteacher

Welcome to Drayton CE Junior School, a fabulous school laying at the heart of its community. We build strong relationships at all levels, encouraging everyone to dream big and be the very best that they can be. Life is full of opportunities and together we strive to make the most of the ones that come our way. As a forward thinking, caring school, which wants the best for all of 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 CE Junior School. Visitors are warmly welcomed so please contact us if you want to come and experience first-hand the incredible learning experience provided at our school.

Our 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, are embedded across our curriculum and life in school. We promote Christian values centred on the parable of The Good Samaritan, enjoying a close, supportive relationship with St Margaret’s Church, Drayton. As a Church of England Voluntary Controlled school, we invest in opportunities for pupils to make a positive contribution to the local and wider communities around them, appreciating the many positive differences that they can achieve to the lives of others.

At Drayton CE Juniors we value the positive learning environment created by our skilled, dedicated, and highly experienced staff team. We value feedback of all kinds, recognising the importance of collaboration and listening, engaging pupils fully in their own learning journey. We respect and value each other, offering appropriate challenge and support. Developing independence, resilience and a lifelong love of learning through fostering inquisitiveness and asking questions is encouraged by teaching staff. 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 vibrant, broad and balanced curriculum and a range of wider learning opportunities aimed at developing the whole child.

Drayton CE Juniors is an amazing school! We are one big team; children love coming to school and the teaching team love providing an exciting, varied curriculum to engage and excite their classes in their learning. Being on the outer skirts of Norwich, we are very lucky to be able to offer a wide range of visits, enriching our pupils’ learning in both city and countryside settings.
