Our vision

Craven Primary Academy is a school which has its foundations firmly rooted in the core values of respect, perseverance and challenge.

Our mission is to develop children who have active and creative minds, a sense of understanding and compassion for others, and the courage to act upon their beliefs.

We seek to create a challenging learning environment that incorporates high expectations, but caters for the unique learning needs of every child.

By teaching children to ask questions, make thoughtful decisions and solve problems, children are driven to become life-long learners and develop skills that prepare them for the demands of the modern world they will soon be changing for themselves.

Our Aims

  • To have happy, polite, well-behaved, independent children who feel safe and secure.
  • To promote a positive and stimulating ‘can do’ atmosphere.
  • To offer an enriched and exciting curriculum.
  • To teach all learners to be responsible members of the community.
  • To use the school’s resources in a way to benefit all its children.
  • To promote a caring attitude to everyone and to the environment.
  • To make sure every child achieves in a supportive, caring environment.
  • To ensure that children learn about, and put into practice, rights and respect for themselves and each other.
  • To make sure every child has access to high quality teaching, and a varied curriculum which includes sport, music, art, drama, languages and spiritual guidance.
