Executive Headteacher's Welcome
Mayfield CE Primary School sits at the heart of the village and plays an important role in the local community. We feel our school has a very special atmosphere which many visitors have commented on; as well as being a supportive learning community, we are welcoming and inclusive where everybody is valued and every child matters. We have high expectations and work hard each day to live out our mission statement:
Nurturing relationships, Inspiring excellence, Achieving potential
We are a Church of England Primary school and all that we do is guided by our Christian values. In both our OFSTED and recent SIAMS (Diocesan) inspections, we have been described as a school that looks outwards; we are very proud of the links we have made with our partner school, Five Ashes, The Saxonbury Federation, other schools in our locality and our local pre-school.
The links that we have made enable us to offer our children a very rich and varied curriculum with plenty of opportunity for extracurricular activity. We ensure all our children are given regular opportunities to learn in the local woodland as we believe that learning does not stop at the classroom door. We are fortunate to be able to offer all of our Key Stage 2 children four years of swimming lessons at the independent school in the village. Sport is celebrated as part of school life with many children taking part in a variety of local sporting engagements. We also encourage our children to participate in the arts through local drama, dance and craft events. These provide a way for our children to share their talents with a wider audience. We also welcome a wide range of visitors into our school community to enhance the children's learning. All of these aspects and much more ensure our school is a vibrant place to be, full of opportunity and excitement.
We have fantastic staff at Mayfield who are all committed to making each day a dynamic, exciting learning experience for the children in our care. Good relationships with parents are valued highly and we see them as partners in their child’s learning.
If you feel we are a school you may like to explore further, please do not hesitate to get in touch - you will be made to feel very welcome.
The school is situated at the end of Mayfield High Street and is an important part of the local community.
Our school building was originally Edwardian, but accommodation has grown significantly over the years with modern extensions and a temporary classroom. We also house the Community Library. There is a good size playground with direct access to a large grassed area belonging to the village. Adjacent to the playground there is a ‘grassed’ area, which the children use for education purposes and for leisure.
Currently there are approximately 173 children in the school. Children are well behaved, well motivated and enjoy coming to school. The school population reflects a wide range of ability and pupils reach high standards of achievement by the time they leave us. Achievement is above national standards at both key stages.
Please find below information relating to our school.
We include links to our prospectus and our recent Ofsted and Section 48 inspections.
