The Village Academy offers generic policies for its schools, which are reflected on this website. The individuality of each school’s context means there may be occasions when a school needs to include appendices to the main policy document in line with its own context. As a Trust, we continually review all our policies. Please click HERE to go to our Policies page.
As an Academy Trust, our Articles of Association determine our governance structure. For a copy of this and further information about the Trust's governance, including membership and attendance at governance meetings, please click HERE.

Each school has a Local Academy Council, which comprise of the Headteacher, the Headteacher from another school within the Trust and a number of non-Trustee members.
Academy Councils are chaired by one of its members. They provide local challenge to the Headteacher using the published School Improvement Plan as a basis for their monitoring.
The Headteacher is responsible for day-to-day management of their school.
