Vision and Aims




Our Vision:

Our vision at the Crabtree Academy Trust is to instil in our pupils the confidence to embrace life and to encourage a love of learning.  We offer a safe, nurturing and stimulating environment where we teach and encourage all of our children to realise their full potential and develop the necessary skills to become independent individuals in the wider community and active citizens of the future.


Our Aims are to:

  • encourage curiosity, self-esteem, independence and a love of learning.
  • provide experiences which are ‘aspirational’; to encourage and promote positive attitudes, mutual respect, consideration of others and high standards of behaviour.
  • provide high quality teaching and learning through working in partnership with teaching alliances and educational Institutions using imaginative ways of delivering a broad curriculum to stimulate and challenge all of our children.
  • develop the necessary skills to enable children to become independent, confident and effective learners.
  • provide a safe and supportive learning environment where everyone is valued and respected.
  • establish positive, cohesive and effective relationships between staff, pupils, parents and the wider community.
  • take pride in taking care of the school environment and feel proud to be part of the Crabtree Academy Trust, striving for continuous improvement in all that we do.
  • celebrate effort and success and build children’s confidence, enabling them to take risks in their learning.
