Values and Vision
Thomas Middlecott Academy’s motto is “every child, every chance, every day”. The school aims to give each child an excellent education. Teachers aim to nurture the students and help them develop self-confidence and gain personal development. The curriculum will be enriching and help the students learn about living and working in the 21st Century.
“The recently appointed headteacher has made an impressive start. Expectations for what students can achieve are beginning to rise and there have been improvements in behaviour and attendance. Staff, students and parents feel there have been many positive changes since April 2013. Partnerships with parents are strengthening. Students are cared for well. They feel safe in school and are confident that staff will deal with any problems that may arise. Most teachers show that they have secure subject knowledge and many have good relationships with their students. Where teaching is good, staff target questions at individual students to check the quality of their learning and to keep them fully involved in the lesson.”
