At Wellington Eagles Primary Academy, our vision is to create a learning community where kindness, grit, acceptance, integrity, curiosity, and courageousness are at the heart of everything we do. We strive to nurture a love of learning that inspires our pupils to be curious about the world around them and to develop the courage to face challenges with determination and resilience. We foster a culture of acceptance and inclusivity, where everyone is valued, respected and supported to reach their full potential. Our commitment to integrity means we uphold high moral and ethical standards in all our actions and interactions, and we take responsibility for our choices and their consequences. We believe that by embracing these values, our pupils will thrive and grow into compassionate, confident and successful citizens who positively contribute to society.

British Values Statement

Wellington Eagles Primary Academy endeavours to actively promote British Values through a rich and diverse curriculum. We define those values as:


The rule of law

Individual liberty

Mutual respect

Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs

‘Actively promoting’ means: challenging pupils, staff or parents expressing opinions contrary to fundamental British Values, including ‘extremist’ views and equally, any views that engender racist or discrimination towards others.  

Wellington Eagles Primary Academy uses the National Curriculum and our PSHE offer to ensure that all children are secure and embed the core British Values. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum that teaches elements of democracy, civic responsibility, rules and laws, the monarchy, equality, values and virtues, environmental awareness and understanding of other faiths.

This also includes support for parents, carers and staff. To ensure such values are permeated through school life, each term has a British Values focus, which drives curriculum events and trips.
