Vision and Values


We aim to live, on a daily basis, by these Christian Values and they run as threads through all we do.  We recognise that these values are also those which people of other faiths and people of no faith live by and we ensure that that is reflected in the way the children learn about the values - using, not only stories from the Bible, but also stories from other faiths and stories about people of no particular faith who have shown this value.  We encourage all the members of our community to think about how these values can be shown in their own lives to benefit all members of our community.  




The academy vision is a simple statement of the type of academy we are aiming to create. In some aspects it is a reflection of what we have already achieved; in others it is a statement of how we would like to develop the academy. The academy vision gives a focus to everything that we do and underpins all the decisions we make. Tadpole Farm CE Primary Academy is:

  • a community living and learning through Christian values
  • a place of friendship; a partnership between children, parents, staff, Local Board members, the Church, the DBAT family of academies and the community as a whole.
  • a compassionate place where the individuality, gifts and talents of all children and adults are nurtured  
  • a stimulating environment where children enjoy achieving full potential in their academic, creative, personal, physical, moral and spiritual development
  • an innovative Church academy, where exploring and asking great questions is part of everyday life
  • a place where a love of learning grows through all we do
