Welcome from the Associate Headteacher

Welcome to Claycots Primary School (Britwell Campus)

Britwell campus

Our school is a diverse, friendly and inclusive community built upon our clear, shared values. Our aim is to equip  children with the social skills and academic ability they need to be able to make choices in their future lives. To quote our school song our children are ‘the children of the future’

Our LIVE values are in the heart of everything we do. They are visible in everywhere around the school, demonstrated in every classroom, lesson and playtime.

We

L              Love Learning and Lead Learning

I               Investigate and Innovate

V              Value each other and our community

E              strive for Excellence through Expectation

Our children at Claycots are encouraged to grow, progress and thrive not only academically, but socially, emotionally, spiritually and in confidence too. Children are recognised for the positive contributions they make to their classes, the school and our community and demonstrate lovey manners and respect for all.  We make time in our days to celebrate successes, no matter how small. We look forward to welcoming you into our school – visits are welcome.

The Associate Headteacher, Ms Rebecca Whitlock, takes a close interest in the progress and well-being of each child and is available to meet with parents to discuss any aspect of their child's education.

‘After gaining my BA (Hons) in Russian and French at Bradford University, I decided initially to move into Music Education, working at ABRSM as Manager of the Examiner Panel for a number of years. The lure of teaching was ever strong, however, and I changed direction, completing my PGCE at Canterbury Christchurch University. I have worked in both the independent and the state sector and was delighted to become Associate Headteacher of Claycots Town Hall Campus in September 2014. 

I am extremely active and am rarely found sitting down relaxing! An avid exerciser, both in the gym and outdoors, I am also a keen musician, still finding time to play the piano outside of assembly as well as participating in local choirs.’
