Our Team

At Clayton Village School we are fortunate to have an extensive staff team who work extremely hard to support every child in a variety of different ways. Our school operates as a team and we wish to welcome children and parents to join our team in making Clayton Village Primary School the best provider of education as it possibly can be. 

Our staff are always willing to help with any queries or concerns you may have. Parents are welcome to speak with Class Teachers informally at the end of the school day regarding classroom-based issues. In addition, parents can also contact our Learning Mentor via the school office at any time. Members of the Leadership Team are always available to work with parents to find solutions to any issues or concerns you may have.
