Welcome to Violet Way Academy
We are a busy but friendly school, with lots going on. This website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing regular updated information for both parents and pupils.
We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find any information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact the school direct with any queries you may have. Thank you for visiting!
The school converted to a Academy in June 2011. The following year OFSTED rated the school OUTSTANDING in all areas. Violet Way Nursery, on the same site as the school, has also been rated OUTSTANDING on two consecutive occasions (June 2012 and December 2014). We are very proud of these achievements and work hard at all times to maintain these judgements.
Violet Way Academy is a popular infant and nursery school in which children thrive because they enjoy school and feel happy safe and valued. The children develop the confidence, independence and skills they need to b successful learners in a rapidly changing world. We work in close partnership with parents and the whole community.
We ensure that we offer an exciting and enriched curriculum, with plenty of opportunities to take part in special events and extra-curricular activities. The children also benefit from the excellent facilities and resources we have in school as well as our substantial area of woodland. Forest school practice is well embedded into our vibrant curriculum.
Specialist teaching is a significant feature of the Academy. In Year 1 pupils have swimming lessons, and the subjects of art, music, dance, ICT and gymnastics all benefit fromm the expertise of specialists in these areas.
Please enjoy our website. We are always happy to hear from you, so please don't hesitate to contact us should you wish to do so. We value your opinions to help us ensure that we are offering the best possible provision, care and education at all times.
