Archbishop Wake CE Primary School

Vision and Values

Our vision and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.

Our Vision:


Aim high, believe. Fly high, Achieve.



"...but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary,

they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40 v 31


Archbishop Wake CE Primary School is a loving, caring and forgiving community where we respect, appreciate and support each other and our environment.  Through our Christian Vision and Values, we work hard to ensure there is support for all in our community: we treat everyone with dignity and respect, and we promote the values of hope and love through developing healthy relationships with one another. Learning is challenging, exciting and fun.  Children are prepared for the changing modern world in which they live by learning and applying key skills so that they achieve the best possible outcomes and become independent learners for life.  They have opportunities to discover, develop and share their talents, know how to keep themselves safe and healthy and understand their rights and responsibilities as a member of the wider community.   On leaving our school, children are well equipped to embrace their future and all it holds with faith in God, each other and themselves.


Our Values:


Happiness, Perseverance, Co-operation, Kindness, Courage, Honesty and Respect




The aims of Archbishop Wake CE VA School derive naturally from the Christian faith, which is at the heart of all we do as a school:

  • To promote the Church of England vision for education: 'Life in all its fullness' through the values of Hope, Wisdom, Community and Respect.
  • To create a community where everyone is able to flourish in a safe, stimulating and purposeful environment.
  • To care actively for each other and treat everyone with respect and tolerance.
  • To enhance and fulfil every child's potential and enable all - adults and children - to flourish.
  • To create a sense of the school as an extended family unit, developing positive links with the home, community and other schools.
  • To foster in our children a love of life-long learning.
  • To develop a communal sense of pride in our school and in all our endeavours.
