Click here to find out more about our school vision


At Cradley Church of England Primary School we believe that every child is made in the image of God and as such is a person of great worth, to be valued and treated with respect.  Jesus treated Peter with dignity and respect; he believed in Peter and nurtured his faith and self-belief.  We want our children to learn from the relationship, to believe in themselves and their own abilities so that they can aspire to be the best they can be. We will help our children to develop resilience, to have the confidence to choose the right path in life, but also to find their way back if they take a wrong turn.  In the same way that Peter was guided and supported by Jesus, so we will guide our children in their spiritual life, support them on a journey of faith and offer them an encounter with Jesus Christ.



Jesus welcomed Peter and gave him the opportunity to belong to a very special community. All relationships at Cradley CE are inspired by this example Jesus set; we aspire to be a welcoming and inclusive community in which all who belong can flourish. Our core Christian values are at the heart of all we do, allowing us to develop a true feeling of belonging and a sense of shared identity. We hope that everyone who comes to Cradley CE feels part of our Cradley family, just as Peter experienced a sense of belonging with Jesus and the other disciples .  Our children are encouraged to value and embrace the many local, national and global communities to which they belong and we support each child in developing the qualities of character which will help them to participate in their communities and to grow as responsible, compassionate and caring citizens.


Be Happy

Happiness is the key to success and this knowledge underpins everything we do at Cradley. We want our children to feel safe, secure and happy at school: happy to talk, happy to listen, happy to learn and happy to try new things and take risks. We will help each child to see that they are special and encourage them to value themselves, to be happy with who they are, a unique child of God.


Every Child

Jesus accepted Peter for who he was and loved him unconditionally. He saw potential in Peter and called him ‘The rock’; he gave Peter the opportunity to be part of something very special. At Cradley CE we are inspired by the example Jesus set; we believe that every child is worthy of love and compassion and should be treated with dignity. We understand that every child is precious, each with their own special talents, needs and abilities. Through our broad and rich curriculum, each child is nurtured in confidence and given the opportunity to succeed, building on their own unique gifts.


Every Chance

Throughout his life, Peter made many mistakes. Each time, Jesus forgave him and gave him another chance to be the best person he could be.  At Cradley we believe that each child should have every chance to live life in its fullness and to fulfil their potential. We have high aspirations for all our children and our dedicated staff are committed to providing high quality teaching and learning. We encourage our children to be independent, resilient learners who cope wisely when faced with challenges or difficulties. We work in close partnership with parents and other stakeholders to open up horizons of hope and aspiration so that every child has the best possible chance to succeed and reach their potential.


Every Day

We encounter each new day with the view that anything is possible; each day is a chance to do better, with endless possibilities for our children to fulfil their potential. We encourage our children to make the most of every day and make sure each child has new and exciting opportunities to explore. Inspired by the example Jesus set, forgiveness underpins all relationships; children are given a fresh start each day- another chance when they have made a mistake. They are encouraged to be forgiving in their daily lives and to give others another chance too. Through the variety of experiences and opportunities offered every day, our children receive a school experience which prepares them for their journey through life.
