New to Claypole?

Welcome to our school


We understand that parents are busy and starting a new school can be an upheaval; this page has been put together to help you as much as we can by collating information we think you'll need as a new parent at our school. 


It is with great pleasure that I introduce you to our wonderful Church of England Primary School of which we are all very proud. Claypole is a small, friendly and thriving village school in an attractive, rural location.  We have small class sizes where children are taught in single-aged year groups in Key Stage 2 and in mixed-age classes in Key Stage 1.  This is a school where children and adults have fun, work hard and achieve our very best.  We love sports, art and music and produce fantastic work.  You will hear much laughter and see smiling faces when you visit us, but you will also see good quality work in every part of our school. 


All schools have their own distinctive ‘feel’ which makes each one unique.  We believe that the ‘special feel’ at Claypole Church of England Primary School is to do with our caring, friendly atmosphere.  Our school continues to develop in many exciting ways, providing high expectations and an even more enriching experience for our children. We are all extremely proud of our exemplary behaviour, commitment to achieving high standards and providing the very best opportunities for the children in our care. 


Our children achieve high results and academic standards are very important to us.  Alongside this, our children care about each other within our Christian Values and their behaviour is exemplary.  With wrap-around care (breakfast club & after school club) and a variety of clubs during the term, we can help to increase our children’s success beyond the school day.


Thank you for entrusting your child[ren] into our care.
