Violet Way Academy

Reach for the stars



At Violet Way Academy we want all of our pupils to ‘Reach for the Stars’. This means setting aspirational goals, persevering in the face of challenge and striving for excellence in all that they do. Our nurturing and supportive staff team work together to ensure that each and every child is encouraged, supported and inspired to broaden their ambitions. 

Violet Way Academy is a three form entry infant school situated in Burton on Trent. It is a happy, nurturing and safe place to learn where children from the age of four to seven work and play in well-equipped, stimulating classrooms and outdoor spaces. We are delighted to be a part of the Fierte Trust, working collaboratively with other schools towards our shared goal of 'Inspiring All to Excellence'. 

Through our engaging, well-planned curriculum, high quality teaching and excellent pastoral care, we want all of our young learners to develop the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to flourish as individuals, ready for the next stage of their education. 

Our broad and balanced curriculum provides our pupils with memorable and meaningful experiences and is enriched with an excellent Forest School provision, specialist teaching, bespoke parental engagement events, visits, visitors and extra-curricular activities.  

At Violet Way Academy, we have built strong links with our supportive parents and the local community and really value the contributions they make to our school. All the staff and children are very proud of our school and I feel privileged to be the Headteacher. 

Our website has been designed to give you a flavour of the learning experience that we offer to our young children. Please feel free to contact us if you would like any more information or would like to visit us to see first-hand our welcoming, family-feel, caring learning environment. Please contact the school office if you would like to visit. We are always happy to show parents and visitors around our beautiful school.

Thank you 

Mrs Kee
