Visions and Values

Our Vision Statement

Jesus said ‘I have come that they may have life in all its fullness’

                                                                                                                                                                                       John 10:10.


At Archbishop Cranmer we strive for life in

all its fullness, for all our children, staff and school community.

We aim for our pupils to have a lifelong love of learning and to be confident, mature thinking, articulate individuals, with both a positive ‘take care’ attitude to work and a social ‘take care’ conscience: everything we do is of significance and part of our Christian mission.


Our vision statement outlines the aspirations we have for our school and its children.   At Archbishop Cranmer we believe it is not enough to just talk about our vision. We believe in providing a Culture of Opportunity for all of our children so they can live  'life in all its fullness' and we aim for profound personal development of all. Find out how our R.E. contributes to the spirituality of our children, how it builds community cohesion and how our Christian Distinctiveness is threaded right through the heart of our school  here and more about the rich, broad, 'beyond expectation' curriculum we provide here.  


As a Church of England school, all of what to do is shaped by our Christian values of Kindness, Trust, Courage, Respect, Thankfulness and Responsibility. These underpin all we do and we believe this is fundamental to our children growing into active citizens ready for life in the 21st Century.  We prepare all children to make exceptional contributions to the global society and our curriculum enriches lives spiritually, culturally, emotionally and morally. It is important that our clearly communicated and lived out values are also understood at home, with the potential for our whole school community to be influenced and changed by them. It is this living out of our values which genuinely defines our school and makes us distinctive.    


 These link to our British Values of tolerance, mutual respect, individual liberty, democracy and the rule of law.  Last year, we were one of just three primary schools invited to present on how we put these into action, at the Living the Vision Conference. 

"Thank you all again for your contributions to our Living the Vision Conference. Your presentations gave the delegates really helpful, practical examples of living out your school vision and values."

Many thanks and every blessing for the rest of the term,Dr Anne Lumb, Diocesan Schools Adviser


We also have a British Values Progression Document that showcases the skills and knowledge we teach our children.

We believe our actions and impact within the local community and wider world are what really shows the core beliefs that we build our school upon.  Here  are just some examples of how we, as a school live out our vision in our wider community.



We have also created a school booklet to show how these values support the spiritual, moral,social and cultural development of our children.
