Welcome


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.”

If we hadn’t witnessed our Reception children doing these wonderful pictures, we would have found it hard to believe that they did them. They are exceptional! Inspired by the author and artist Eric Carle, they layered media and splattered paint to create these art pieces based upon the book ‘The Hungry Caterpillar’. ... See MoreSee Less

For 3 weeks, an incubator in the Year 5 classroom has been a source of great excitement and anticipation. The pupils have been eagerly watching the eggs, looking for any signs of change. So, you can imagine their excitement and delight when 5 chicks hatched. This experience has really enhanced their learning about life cycles and supported them in writing informative and interesting fact files. ... See MoreSee Less
