School Values & Ethos
School is also part of the Astrea Academy Trust and embodies their values as well. These are:
Curiosity | Scholarship | Tenacity
At Carrfield Primary Academy, we seek to create a happy, positive and empathetic environment where children are valued, both academically and socially. We ensure that every child in our care develops the scholarship that they need to enable them to reach their full potential and that they experience a broad, balanced and creative curriculum that inspires curiosity and a passion for learning. Our curriculum also promotes being kind and honest at all times and respecting all others. We endeavour to develop confident, lifelong learners who have a tenacious attitude that will help them to relish the challenges that our rapidly changing world presents to them.
Carrfield Primary Academy has a friendly and welcoming atmosphere where every child is valued and all staff, parents, governors and Astrea work together to ensure every child reaches their potential. We have high hopes and aspirations for our children and we continuously review and adapt our curriculum to interest all children and involve them fully in their learning. We want our children to be excited about coming to school; to love learning; to be motivated, enthusiastic and challenged; to know what success is in each and every one of them and that it comes as a result of their own efforts: this is paramount. We strive to provide our children with the belief that they CAN improve and learn and to be delighted and proud of their achievements.
In order for children to achieve their best, there needs to be a really positive cooperation between home and school. We value the positive relationships that already exist between home and school and seek to involve parents/carers as much as possible to strengthen this further – not just in their own child’s education but in the work of the school in general to impact positively on the community.
Carrfield Primary Academy is part of the Astrea Academy Trust. Contact details can be found at the foot of this page.
