Our Academy Vision and Values
Our Academy Vision
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 vision complements the Trust vision - 'Inspiring all to Excellence'
Our Academy Values
Our values are the thread that drive excellence and create the culture in which we can all excel. We expect all members of the school community, parents, families and staff, to work collaboratively with high aspirations and expectations of everyone, consistent with our values. Below, we have identified some key character traits, linked to our four key values, that our pupils will learn at Violet Way to help them flourish as individuals ready for the next stage of their education.
We treat people, living things and delicate objects with gentleness. We offer support to someone who needs help or is sad. We care about and look after our environment. We look after ourselves by eating healthily, exercising, keeping clean and staying safe.

We are brave
We will try new things even if we feel afraid of doing them. We do what we know is the right thing, even when it is difficult. If we find things challenging, we keep trying and never give up. We support each other to face our fears and persevere. We aim to be the best that we can be.
