Inspiring all God’s children

At East Claydon we strive to live our Christian values every day, putting our children’s well-being at the heart of everything we do. Through personalised and immersive learning, we nurture curiosity, creativity and emotional resilience whilst inspiring every child to excel. Here everyone will be supported to fulfil their dreams, whilst learning to value each other, our community and all of God’s creation.

Welcome to East Claydon C of E School – a small Christian community set within a beautiful rural landscape. With half-form entry (only taking 15 children per year group), we aim to create a true family-focused community, where every child is understood, valued and supported to become an lifelong learner and thoughtful custodian of our world. 

Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them, for the kingdom of God belongs to them.
Mark 10:13-16 

Children can join us from their second birthday in our thriving Pre-School. When they join us, one of our Pre-School team becomes their key worker; building a strong nurturing relationship with each child so that we can support their development and extend their passions. Our beautiful environment, both inside and out, invites children to explore, challenge themselves and learn new skills alongside their friends. 

As children move seamlessly into School, or when they join us in Reception, they will be in a year group of 15 children, which ensures that we understand all their individual idiosyncrasies and can personalise learning to meet their specific needs. Our immersive and integrated expeditions form the foundation for learning across the School, ensure that our children are: 

  • happy, confident and engaged in their learning; 
  • independent and collaborative learners who take responsibility for their outcomes; and 
  • active participants in their personal journey, choosing the learning pathways that most interest them. 

I am very proud to be the Headteacher of this fantastic school – it is a real privilege to work in close partnership with our parents and the local community so that our children can be inspired to become lifelong learners who are empowered to follow their dreams.  

I would be delighted to share our school with you and warmly welcome you to come and look around and see our children at work and play. 

Best wishes,

Headteacher: Mrs Rachel Tilden Walker
