Drayton Parslow Village School
Welcome to Drayton Parslow Village School
At Drayton Parslow, we aim to give children an excellent start to their education and learning adventure.
‘We struck gold when our child was accepted into Drayton Parslow' (Ofsted report)
Our experienced teachers deliver a knowledge-rich curriculum which is broad, balanced, progressive and creative. Our curriculum is designed to equip our children with the knowledge and skills they will need to become global citizens, addressing individual children’s needs and interests so that they are confident, well prepared and highly motivated learners.
Our teachers create a vibrant, stimulating environment, nurturing deep, dynamic learning and enabling children to grow in confidence; but most important of all, encouraging them to love learning. Being able to reflect on their own individual progress is very important, and something we encourage right from the start. We have high expectations for our children’s behaviour. We teach them how to show empathy, to be kind, honest and considerate towards others.
Classes are kept small creating a caring, friendly environment where children are taught at their own individual level so they can progress at the right pace and achieve their potential. Lessons are taught using a variety of methods to ensure all children are engaged in their learning and inspired. Children also spend plenty of time exploring and learning in our Forest School area; a place where we can teach the core curriculum using more creative approaches that complement our more traditional classroom teaching.
We monitor the children’s academic progress carefully, stepping in to provide individual tuition when it is needed, and ensuring that every child is challenged in line with their ability.
We cater for children between four and seven years old, after which the vast majority of our pupils move on to Swanbourne CE Junior School.
