Welcome from Mrs Emsley, Headteacher:

"Growing together in God's Love"

A warm welcome to all of our visitors here at Clayton St John C of E Primary School.



Our school vision.


Rooted deeply in God’s love, we flourish as individuals and as a community.
Within a nurturing environment, we develop curiosity, creativity and a love of learning.
We learn and grow when things go well and things go wrong. In all we do we hope to be the best we can be.

Ephesians 3: 16 -18
Jeremiah 17: 7, 8

Our school is situated at the heart of Clayton, and is an important part of the community. We are a part of Bradford Diocesan Academy Trust (BDAT), a multiacademy trust developed by the Diocese of West Yorkshire and the Dales. Alongside this collaboration, we also have strong associations with our local schools, St John’s Church and our Local Achievement Partnership. These links strengthen our offer to our pupils, staff and wider community.

At Clayton St John, we are developing a curriculum and learning environment that promotes interest, excitement, motivation, achievement and success.

We aim to develop this approach and create an environment in which children will flourish. We want the children to care and show respect for each other, value themselves and learn to appreciate the values of others. We work very closely with our families to ensure that children achieve good attendance, punctuality, behaviour and, ultimately, positive learning outcomes. Our partnership with parents and carers is important to us. Through an effective home and school link we aim to ensure that your child's time with us is successful and happy. In a secure learning environment we will offer your child support and challenge, as it is our aim to enable each child to achieve their own potential. We are always happy to welcome visitors, especially new families. Our school is a Church of England Voluntary Controlled academy where children are educated in a Christian environment. We welcome children and their families from all faiths, beliefs and those who hold no specific religious beliefs.

Please contact staff in the main office if you would like to arrange a suitable time to visit our school. If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact us.

We are a busy but friendly school, with lots going on. This website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing up to date information for parents, pupils and the wider community.
