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.

Acorns Extras - 19.05.2020

We couldn't paint our clay today as it hadn't dried so we created some rainbow sunbeams instead. The children also looked at the work of Clarice Cliff and produced some paintings in her style. We finished the day off with some adventures in forest school.

Thank You Mr Cannon!

We just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to Mr Cannon from Premier Sports who has been a fantastic member of the staff team looking after the keyworker children every day.

He has been encouraging the children to join in with a variety of physical education games and exercises which has helped look after their wellbeing.

Thank you for everything you are doing Mr C!

Mr C

One of our amazing students Elise delivered a homemade cake for staff who have been working hard at school during lockdown. Mrs Hope said it was delicious and what a lovely gesture. Thank you!

This week our keyworker children have been busy making posters for the amazing waste collectors to thank them for all their hard work during this difficult time.

A huge THANK YOU to Natalie Gurney and Lee Addington for donating a bag of goodies from Acti-Labs to keep our Key Workers  hands nice and soft. They were so chuffed with the lovely surprise!


Rayne Primary School donates PPE equipment to Broomfield Hospital

Rayne Primary School were able to donate disposable aprons and anti-bacterial wipes to Broomfield Hospital as part of the Countywide appeal for donations of PPE equipment.

A big Thank You to Mrs Hayden for preparing food parcels for some of our families at this difficult time.

The World is a Better Place Because of You!

During the last week before school was closed, parents and pupils from Rayne Primary & Nursery School created a surprise campaign for teaching and support staff, thanking them all for their amazing work during the recent difficult weeks. Children across the school, some of whom were still attending and those that were self-isolating, created unique artwork which all had the same themed words:

"The World is a Better Place Because of You"

On the last day of school, the children presented their artwork to staff across the school along with a bunch of daffodils for each member of staff, kindly donated by Rayne PSA.  The staff were extremely touched by the fantastic artwork!

Have you seen our rainbows on your daily walk?

Tablets for Broomfield Hospital

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who donated to The LaLas Choir Tablets for Broomfield appeal. The first batch of 5 Amazon Fire HD tablets and protective cases were handed over to Jon Wright who works at Broomfield Hospital yesterday. The tablets will be used by patients (helped by NHS staff) to communicate with their loved ones who they cannot be with at this extremely difficult time.

The LaLas Choir raised over £1,800 in less than a week!!

Thank you to Mrs Christian for setting up the appeal for this fantastic cause ⭐
