Head Teacher's Welcome

At Rayne Primary and Nursery School, we are very proud of our children and everything that they achieve. We strongly believe that Primary Education is significant, it provides the foundation for children and we feel very privileged to be working with the families and community to shape our young people for the future. The children are the most important people within the school and we strive to ensure that their time with us is both productive and happy. We work hard to develop each child so that during their time with us they become confident individuals who are ready for the next stage in their learning.

Our aim is high quality education and our school is well placed in the heart of Rayne community to provide this. The school has been part of this village since 1878, moving to its present site in Capel Road in 1975. Spacious classrooms, a library, computing suite with relevant IT resources and a parents’ room all mean that we have good facilities to develop a structured and vibrant curriculum to inspire our children and enhance learning.

Links between parents and school are vitally important to us. We encourage an open flow of communication between school and home so that parents really feel in touch with their child’s development and part of the school community.

If you would like to find out more about the school then please do not hesitate to contact the school office and we would be happy to show you around so that you can see the school in action. We look forward to meeting you and working with you and your children.


Mrs. Keeling,

Redrow Homes supports Rayne School Christmas Fete

Redrow Homes visited assembly this week and our pupils Danny, Harry, Lily & Freddie were delighted to accept a cheque for £400 in support of the upcoming Christmas Fete on Saturday 30th November from 1pm-4pm. The money will support the refreshments stalls where the catering team will be serving all sorts of festive food including turkey rolls, mince pies and delicious hot chocolate.  This is a great boost towards the fete profits and we can't thank Redrow enough.

Traffic Safety Cones

A big THANK YOU to Braintree District Council and a group of concerned parents who kindly awarded a grant and made donations to purchase road safety cones.

The main aim of the road safety cones is to encourage sensible parking outside of our school and we think the cones are fantastic in Rayne colours too!

KS1 Trip to Duxford

KS1 enjoyed a very interesting and exciting trip to Duxford recently as part of their Aviation topic. They were fascinated by the model aeroplanes, real life Concorde and had fun in the aviation themed playground too! They spotted the information section about The Wright Brothers who they had been learning about and were very pleased with themselves!

Thank you so much to the KS1 staff for arranging this excursion and to our kind parent volunteers for helping us.
