Violet Way Academy


The Governing Board are the strategic leaders of our school and have a vital role to play in making sure every child receives the best possible education.  Their purpose, reflected in the law, is to 'conduct the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement at the school'.  They have a strong focus on three core strategic functions:

Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;

Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff;

Overseeing the financial performance of the school with the Trust board finance Committee and making sure its money is well spent.

We are fortunate to have a strong Governing Board who are committed and work with staff to ensure that all learners achieve and fulfil their potential.  The Governing Board meet on a termly basis. In addition the Governors meet as a Curriculum & Standards Committee every term as well as fulfilling their role as a Link Governor holding school to account.
