Waddington All Saints Academy – Through the Eyes of a Child

We didn’t want to tell you what it is like to be a child at our school, we wanted them to show you. Even on a damp autumn day in the heart of the 2020 lockdown, the irresistibility of the learning, the richness of the curriculum and the love of reading shone out. Our pupils know how much it means to us that they are safe, happy and successful and as a result they care deeply about their education and each other and it shows. Welcome to Waddington All Saints Academy. We are grateful to you for taking the time to watch our video – ‘Through the Eyes of a Child’.

Our Vision

“If they have wings, why make them walk?”

At Waddington All Saints Academy our aim is to provide a learning environment and experience that enables children to thrive and develop as learners and leaders.

We want to inspire and motivate all children to have a wonderful desire to learn and grow as individuals and as a collective. To empower and support them to become life-long learners who are prepared to take risks, learn with growing independence and develop skills that enable them to fly high academically, socially, emotionally and physically.

We want our pupils to thrive as a result of our ambition for them to succeed beyond their own expectations and through the identification and removal of their barriers to learning and achievement.

Through the delivery of irresistible learning opportunities and rich experience, we strive to give children the ability and confidence to work and speak as experts; progressively building transferable knowledge and understanding that is memorable, broad and empowering. This, alongside the relentless drive for high quality outcomes and progress, underpinned by excellence and pride, exemplifies our ambition for our pupils.

We expect pupils to behave as responsible good citizens and role models, supporting them to understand the choices and behaviours that will enable them to make positive decisions. We do this within a culture of mutual respect for all within our community, encouraging kindness, tolerance and care for others

We measure our success in our ability to support pupils to have the skills, knowledge, personal qualities and drive to be successful within the next stages of their life and beyond and to make a positive contribution to life in modern Britain.

“The behaviour of pupils is outstanding. Pupils follow school routines to the letter. As a result, behaviour in the school grounds, in corridors and in the dining hall is usually impeccable.”

Year 5 had a fantastic visit to Creswell Crags, consolidating their understanding of Ancient Britain. The pupils were able to explore the museum and take on the role of palaeontologists looking at bones and piecing them together to identify the animals that once roamed the area. They then put on hard hats before having the opportunity to explore the caves that Ancient Britons used to live in, to learn about the tools and resources that were available for survival. ...

Meeting a new baby is always a joy. So, when Mrs Oakley offered to bring baby Willow into school recently, it was a real treat. Year 3 have been learning about the needs of a new-born baby, alongside consideration of the impact of a new baby upon family life. They really appreciated the opportunity to ask thoughtful questions and we would like to thank Mrs Oakley for doing this for us. ... See MoreSee Less

Year 1 designed and made their own animal puppets in their DT Textiles work. Before making them, they considered the best fabric to use and learnt how to join it securely. As you can see, they were absolutely thrilled with the puppets that they had made. ... See MoreSee Less

It doesn’t seem very long since we posted about the caterpillars arriving at school. But as the sun shone, Year 2 had to say goodbye to their beautiful butterflies. They have really enjoyed having the opportunity to observe them and record the changes as they have progressed to become magnificent butterflies. The children were able to watch them being released and some even got to briefly hold the butterflies before they flew away. They are keeping an eye out for any butterflies now, knowing that they may have start their lives at Waddington All Saints! ... See MoreSee Less
