Flourishing together as one


 At Cleadon Church of England Academy, we work together in partnership as one family to enable each person to flourish in their own unique way. Each person is valued and listened to with the common goal to achieve and succeed through a lifelong love of learning. We nurture and nourish to develop well-rounded, compassionate global citizens who are resilient to the challenges that they will face in life and reflective of their experiences.


Biblical Reference

Romans 12:4-6

4 For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, 5 so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. 6 We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us.

The new school Vision was introduced to the children along with a new strapline, a statement, a Biblical quote and a song in November 2023. Children enjoyed the opportunity to observe staff sharing their part in the Vision before mirroring this in their classrooms with their peers. Every child, member of staff and Academy Councillor was given a Lego brick which they used to share their part in the Vision adding their name. The Junior Leadership Team then built a replica model of the school building using every brick showcasing how we all play our part with everyone bringing their own unique qualities to school and having a role to play (see above). The Vision will be lived out by all following our school Christian Values.


At the heart of everything we do are the core values:


Respect for myself and others.

Resilience in trying new things and not being concerned by a setback.

Pride in my successes and achieving something new.

Creativity in expressing myself in a variety of ways.

Safety for myself and others in a harmonious environment.

Encouragement for others and to act upon any given to me.

Honesty when faced with the question of right or wrong.

Kindness to my friends, peers and adults in school.

Equality so that everyone is treated the same and fairly.
