Vision Statement

Our Vision


We all know all children have potential, but will they all achieve it? At Michael Drayton we inspire our pupils to become the next David Attenborough, Beth Mead, Steve Jobs. Whether it is fighting for climate change or building the next Shard, we develop the aspirations and ambition of all of our pupils. We achieve this by giving our pupils experiences, opening up their eyes to the world and its opportunities. We do this because we care about our pupils, they are an extension of our own families and we a proud to be part of their lives and honoured to have the opportunity to make a positive difference for them.


At Michael Drayton we empower and champion every single individual. Postcodes will not dictate destinations. We are passionate and have a compelling commitment to equip our pupils with the attributes needed to excel in life, giving them the knowledge to succeed, the resilience to not give up and the confidence to accept nothing but the best.


In year 6 we want every pupil to leave with a sense of belonging to the world around them – to know and believe in their own self-worth, to have the ability to empathise and the respect to work through conflict.


Our Ethos


Our school is built on kindness, honesty and trust.


Our Values 


Our Values are based on resilience, ambition and pride.


Together we move forward stronger.


Our Strategic Priorities


Our strategic priorities drive everything we do, the way we interact with each other, teach our pupils and the provision we provide… when you walk into our school not only will you see them displayed on our wall next to the entrance but you’ll see it and feel it when you come inside… we evidence our strategic priorities in all we do, we live it, we breathe it – it is engrained, it is the MDJS way of life.


We Inspire through recognising potential, using memorable experiences and an enriched curriculum to instil ambition, aspirations, and self-belief.


We achieve through providing high quality learning experiences, nurturing expertise to prepare pupils for life beyond school.


We care through encouraging our pupils to love themselves and giving them opportunities to develop care and respect for the world around them
