Ethos & Values

At the heart of our school are our children and their learning

Thomas Walling Primary Academy is part of the Laidlaw Schools Trust. We are an inclusive school, committed to developing the full academic, spiritual, social and individual potential of each child within our ‘Family of Learners’. We aim to foster good relationships between children, staff, parents and the wider community and are committed to protecting and safeguarding the welfare of every child. 

Our School Aims are to create a school community with:

  • Successful learners who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve;
  • Confident individuals who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives;
  • Responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society.

Thomas Walling Academy is a diverse and welcoming place which promotes personal values as well as British values. These values are:

  • democracy;
  • the rule of law;
  • individual liberty;
  • mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith.

We promote these values during assemblies, during our Information Station times and in our PSHE teaching.
