Our small and nurturing school believes that every child has a unique contribution to make, so we seek to develop a love of learning through a rich curriculum and an extensive range of extra-curricular opportunities. Challenged and supported as individuals by our experienced staff team, our children make good progress and achieve success. Placing an equal importance on academic, moral, social, physical and spiritual development, ensures confident, well-rounded independent learners, who leave us prepared for the challenges, experiences and responsibilities of the next stage of their education. Our core values of Service, Perseverance, Wisdom, Friendship and Trust underpin everything that we do. 


As Brightwalton is such a small village, many of our families live outside the catchment area in the surrounding villages. We encourage you and your child to visit us, so that you can see for yourself how our children thrive. Please contact the school office to make arrangements.

What Makes Us Unique?

You only have to visit our school to realise that although we have the caring and nurturing ‘feel’ of a small school our curriculum offer for our children is really big!


Our Learning Environment

We have large, bright, inviting classrooms which are well looked after by everyone. Our outdoor learning areas are spacious and well-designed and include a large field and walled garden.



Our school has a wide focus on this and its meaning to different people, beyond its affiliation to the Anglican church. There is a focus on being in touch with everything and everyone and there being more to life than you can perceive with your senses. This relates to all areas of life, and can be seen strongly in key areas of the curriculum including Art, Music, PE, and RE in particular.


PE and Sport

The focus at Brightwalton is on children achieving their personal best but there is also a recognition of excellence with all children having an enthusiasm for sport. We compete at a very high level in many sporting competitions even as a small school.

Our children recognise and accept that some children are outstanding, but they learn that this is ok, and they can be really good at something else.

Sports ambassadors are used as part of our Pupil Leadership Team and children are encouraged to coach others to allow them to realise their own strengths and worth.


Risk Taking

Our school aims to build self-confidence and emotional resilience by offering leadership opportunities, allocating specific responsibilities, and supporting children in taking risks socially, physically and with their learning.
