Our Motto:

Everybody working together to be the best they can be.

Our Vision Statement:


Our vision is to inspire children to develop a life-long love of learning. We believe that every child possesses the potential for greatness. Working together we will equip children with the knowledge, skills and self-belief to change their world.

Our Mission:

At Wellington Lions, we want you to hear our pupils roar. Roaring with passion, courage, and determination. Roaring with curiosity and a thirst for knowledge. Roaring with the unity that comes from shared experiences and values. We are dedicated to helping every child find their unique voice and unleash their potential. Together, as a vibrant and diverse school community, we will reach new heights and achieve great success.

We aim to provide an educational experience that fosters perseverance, respect, independence and courage through being daring which will set our pupils on a path to a bright and promising future to be the best they can be. Together, we roar as one, creating a harmonious symphony of learning, growth, and accomplishment.

Lions Values


To be a Lion, we show:

·         Perseverance: Lions face adversity in the wild and bounce back from challenges. At Wellington Lions, we teach our pupils the power of resilience. Life is filled with ups and downs, but we believe that setbacks are opportunities for comebacks. We foster the ability to bounce back, adapt, and keep moving forward, no matter the obstacles that come their way.

·         Respect: Lions demonstrate respect within their prides by acknowledging leadership and cooperating to ensure their groups well-being. In our school, we value respecting leaders at all levels, self-respect and collaborating for the well-being of everyone.

·         Independence: Lions display independence through making decisions that benefit themselves and their pride. We promote independence to encourage our pupils to take initiative, make responsible choices and contribute to their own growth.

·         Daring: Lions are often associated with courage and bravery. We encourage our pupils to be bold, to face challenges head-on, be independent where possible, and to conquer their fears. We believe in empowering them to take risks, express their ideas, and stand up for what is right. With courage as our guiding light, we instil the bravery to explore, create, and be true to themselves.

·         Everybody working together to be the best they can be.

British Values Statement

Wellington Lions 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 Lions Primary Academy uses the National Curriculum and our ‘Children’s University’ enrichment programme to ensure that all children 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.

The examples that follow provide some of the many ways in which Wellington Lions Primary Academy seeks to promote British Values:


We have an elected school council

The children elect house captains

Pupil voice and pupil survey

This is also explored through our PHSE, History, Religious Education curriculum

The rule of law

Positive behaviour policy which encourages tolerance and mutual respect, including self-mediation and restorative justice
