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.
