Raynsford Academy Church of England Acdemy



Head Teacher's Welcome

Raynsford is a one form entry church of England Primary School set in Henlow, Bedfordshire which was founded in 1826 to provide education according to the ‘principles and practices of the Church of England’. It provides for children from 2 years old, in our own Rayndrops preschool, up to 11 years old.

We aim to serve the community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice preserving and developing our religious character in partnership with St Mary's Church and the diocese of St Albans. We encourage an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith and promote Christian values through the experience it offers to all pupils.

We aim to fully equip the children for a workplace in 2030 and beyond by offering an exciting, inspiring, real and relevant curriculum which is both creative and energising with Music and Sport playing a very special role in the life of everyone at school.

We encourage all our children to develop socially and emotionally as well as academically and physically to enable each individual to achieve their full potential in every aspect of school life. This results in high academic progress and attainment as well as a strong sense of community which we are very proud of.

Most importantly, collectively we are a caring and supportive family which is underpinned by our Christian values.
