At Crakehall we ensure that we work together to create an inclusive environment and a plethora of opportunities were all staff and children can grow and flourish. Creating the right culture and positive relationships are at the heart of everything we do, we value and treasure every individual and take great pride in watching each other grow. 

WheatThe Parable of the Sower is the root of our school vision.

The Parable of the Sower summary:

A farmer went out to sow seeds. The seeds were scattered in different places: on a path, on rocky ground, among thorns, and in good soil. The conditions under which the seeds fell determined whether they grew and how lasting and fruitful their growth was.

Singing plays a huge part in our worship and reflections in school. Our children have chosen songs that they feel support our vision. Please follow the links to listen to their chosen songs:

Growing our Vision together

Together with Rev. Chris Lawton we re-looked at our school vision. We asked ourselves:

  • What do we want children to have when they leave school?
  • What is the community in which we serve like? Has it changed?
  • Does our current vision meet all of our needs?

The first two questions we asked were ‘WHY ARE WE HERE?’ and ‘WHAT IS OUR PURPOSE.’ We understand that we are here to educate children, however, our belief as a school runs much deeper. What unites our team is the passion we have to ensure ALL children and staff feel loved, empowered and important. Creating the right culture for everyone can be a challenge, however, we strive to ensure we do this every day.

The Parable of the Sower is a great lesson to us all. Ensuring we create good soil (our school environment) in order for all seeds to grow (all staff, children, families and the community) to grow together is the root of everything. We believe that nothing will grow to its full potential if it is not nurtured correctly.
