Primary School

Making a difference, every day

Meet the Head Teacher

Mr A L Thomas 

Head Teacher, Senior Designated Safeguarding Lead

Edwalton Primary School is a special place to be; there are happy and enthusiastic children, hardworking staff, a supportive community of parents and carers and a committed Governing Body. Our vision, 'Making a difference, every day' encapsulates our aim to be relentless in helping our children thrive. Every day counts. We value the skills, talents and qualities our staff bring to meet the needs of our children. At Edwalton, we aim to provide a positive, inclusive environment, where children feel happy and safe and flourish due to the care, nurture, support and challenge they receive. We take great pride in caring for our wonderful, sustainable environment and celebrate difference in our diverse school community.

Safeguarding practice and systems across the school are strong and robust. Children's safety and well-being is paramount.


Children always come first. Every child’s achievement, no matter how small is celebrated. Every smile is our reward.


I am the proud dad of three young men and fully understand life as a parent. Life is never boring! My house is full of footballs and dirty rugby clothes, but also smiles. My door is always open, so I welcome parents and carers to pop in as I’m here to help – give me a knock!


We have high expectations for our children, enabling them to develop, grow, and thrive. We provide challenge, enjoyment and encourage our children to be independent learners, problem solvers and team players. Children’s social, moral, spiritual and cultural development, as well as their happiness and well-being, are a key priority; extra-curricular opportunities and nurture programmes aim to develop fully rounded young people. Through our 'Children First' curriculum, we aim to equip our children with the right balance of social, emotional and academic skills to enable them to achieve academic success but also to become special people with a moral outlook.


At Edwalton the children will always be at the centre of all we do.
