Our Curriculum Intent:
Our curriculum at Cranfield Church of England Academy is designed to support us realise our school vision.
Our school Christian vision aspires for all members of our family to ‘live life in all its fullness’, by;
- being immersed in enjoyment, achievement and learning,
- aspiring to greatness in all its forms,
- flourishing in the process,
- being upheld and motivated in our journeys by a Christian,
- ‘Living God’s Love’ as a part of every day.
Through the lens of this Christian Vision, we have designed our curriculum to focus on children’s development spiritually, morally, socially, culturally, academically and physically, providing the very best introduction to the essential knowledge they need to be educated, well-rounded individuals in a modern world.
“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6
