Welcome to Craven Primary Academy

"an Outstanding School!" - Ofsted 2016

At Craven, we pride ourselves on supporting, challenging and nurturing children in a way that helps to build their skillsets to be able to achieve whatever they wish to be.  We have our foundations firmly rooted in the core values of respect, perseverance and challenge. Our mission is to develop children who have active and creative minds, as sense of understanding and compassions for others, and the courage to act upon their beliefs.

We seek to create a challenging learning environment that incorporates high expectations, but caters for the unique learning needs of every child.

By teaching children to ask questions, make thoughtful decisions and solve problems, children are driven to become life-long learners and develop skills that prepare them for the demands of the modern world, they will soon be changing for themselves.

Mr James Phillips

Head of Academy
