|   A Welcome from the Headteacher

Welcome to Walney School.

We have a very simple goal, to ensure that all our students are supported to reach their potential and leave as happy, well-rounded individuals with the qualifications and skills they need for the next stage in their lives. We do this in a culture of wanting students to be:

Proud of their achievements | Proud of their school | Proud of their community

As Headteacher, I am really proud and feel very privileged to work in a school that puts its students and their community first. As parents, you place great trust in us to educate your children and ensure their personal development. We take this responsibility seriously and value the positive relationships that we have with parents. Please never hesitate to contact us if you have any views to offer.

John Richardson | Headteacher

Our school and our community are very special places. We strive to ensure that students, staff and parents are all:

Proud of our achievements
Proud of our school
Proud of our community

Everything we do to achieve this is underpinned by our values that we want every student to achieve well, to feel fully included in the life of the school, to contribute fully to our thriving environment and most importantly to feel that they belong within the school.
