School Mission Statement


Wrenthorpe: Where everyone is valued.
At Wrenthorpe Academy we all work together to provide a secure, caring environment where everyone is valued, expectations are high and achievements are celebrated.

At Wrenthorpe Academy we have these aims for the children in our care:


to help children to develop an enquiring and curious mind and use this in their learning;


to give children confidence, security and happiness;


to teach the children how to acquire knowledge, skills and develop their practical abilities;


to increase children’s imaginative understanding and develop their thirst for knowledge in all aspects of the curriculum;


to teach children social and moral values and to abide by a code of behaviour;


to teach children to be thoughtful and care for themselves, for others and the world around them.
