Cleadon Church of England Academy

Believe, Inspire, Excel


 Guided by our caring Christian ethos, we all work together to equip everyone with the skills, attitude, creativity and motivation to become happy successful lifelong learners and respectful global citizens.




School Values

Prior to the Summer holiday, staff, children and Governors completed a task of looking at the School Values. We looked at the Mission Statement and values for the Trust and Academy and decided what values we wanted to have that the children could understand and could be lived out by everyone involved with the school in day-to-day life. Once this task was completed, we created displays for each classroom. There will also be a large-scale display appearing soon on the fence outside the main entrance. The children will learn about each value both in class and in Collective Worship over this term.






We will bring our Christian ethos to life by:
