Our School Values

Crayke Church of England Primary School works in partnership with parents, children, church and community to provide a first-class education and start in life. We aim to inspire and equip children to learn throughout life and to strive for excellence in their work and relationships.

We promote the personal growth and development of all children, teaching and practising acceptance and inclusion for those of all backgrounds, abilities and beliefs.

We are a Christian foundation serving the whole community, embodying our school values of Respect, Determination, Friendship and Forgiveness in our nurture and encouragement of all.

Respect – Our school is a community which values and respects each member equally. We pay attention to each other’s ideas, feelings and possessions, and take care of our school environment.

Friendship – Everyone needs friends. We encourage children to extend their friendship to all school members, showing support, generosity and love to each other.

Forgiveness – Forgiveness is at the heart of the Christian faith and we acknowledge that every member of the school community – children and staff – needs a fresh start from time to time. We aim to wipe the slate clean each day and not to hold grudges.

Determination – We know that life and learning are sometimes difficult and painful and that it is important to have courage and not to give up. We are committed to the achievement of our community, and of ourselves, for the benefit of us all. We are inspired by God’s endless love and forgiveness for us, so that as members of Crayke School we promise to try our best in everything we do.

A range of stakeholders have worked on our values in action display.  Please call into school to read, look at and even listen to what our values mean to us as a school.
