    Thomas Deacon Academy is founded on the principle that all learners are valued and all deserve to succeed. Learning is our core purpose and we have high aspirations for the young people in our care. Literacy and communication skills will feature strongly in an innovative, rich curriculum along with a focus on Science and Mathematics, allowing children to develop the skills, confidence and resilience that they need to become highly successful learners. We will provide a primary curriculum that will engage and innovate, with a strong emphasis on high standards and good behaviour.  We want all of our children to become confident, well rounded individuals who can excel in the next stage of their education.
