Our Vision

Our academy enables pupils to:

  • Achieve great things
  • Solve problems and become as independent as possible
  • Experience the joy of discovery
  • Build dreams
  • Be filled with awe and wonder
  • Develop self confidence and self belief
  • Communicate effectively¬†

Our vision is focused on ensuring that we prepare our pupils for the next significant stage in their lives, whatever that might be. It identifies what they will achieve and how we will make sure that happens. Cliffdale Primary Academy puts the pupils at the very core of all that we do. When we make a decision the first question we will ask is: "How will our pupils benefit?" In creating our vision we asked 3 questions:

  • What will you see?
  • What will you hear?
  • What will you hear said about our academy?

The pupil of the future leaving our school will:

  • Be confident and happy in themselves and ready for the next phase of their education and life
  • Be proud of themselves and their achievements
  • Be able to form positive relationships
  • Have reached appropriate levels in all aspects of their learning, especially reading, writing and numeracy
  • Feel valued and recognised as making a positive contribution to society and the world around them
  • Be able to communicate effectively with a wide range of people
  • Have developed the skills to operate as independently as they can and the confidence to seek help if they need it
  • Be aware of the importance of a safe and healthy lifestyle and be able to make safe and healthy choices
  • Have set personal goals that are both inspirational and realistic

  • Be responsible citizens who show respect for other cultures, religions and genders
