Vision and Values

At Debden Church of England Primary Academy, OUR VISION is to be a highly-purposeful, caring Christian community, in which our children:

-Progress exceptionally well academically, across a broad and knowledge-rich curriculum;

-Develop into confident, compassionate, well-rounded individuals;

-Become equipped with the learning skills needed to deal with future challenges;

-Create happy, positive memories of their childhood.


Children understand this vision as NURTURE, PROGRESS, and EXCEL. This vision underpins all aspects of school life, and is interwoven with our collective worship values which run throughout the academic year. 

 “That they may have life in all its fullness.” (John 10: 10)


MISSION STATEMENT: In order to achieve our vision, we pledge to:

  • Ceaselessly drive to improve the strength and consistency of teaching and learning across the school;
  • Provide a stimulating, creative and engaging curriculum which develops the skills, abilities and talents of all pupils;
  • Ensure that children are happily challenged in their learning and nurtured as individuals;
  • Hold high expectations of behaviour, which are driven by Christian Values.
  • Provide children with opportunities to develop their innovation, problem-solving, resilience and reflectiveness skills;
  • Embed mutually-supportive and trusting partnerships between children, staff, parents, governors and the wider community.
  • Ensure that children feel valued, safe, and confident to learn and excel.
  • Continually and collaboratively reflect, challenge ourselves, and drive to improve.
