ABOUT US

WELCOME TO OUR SCHOOL

 

On behalf of all the children, staff and governors, I would like to warmly welcome you to the Victoria Park Primary Academy website. I hope it provides you with a window into life within our school.

We are a large primary school located in Smethwick, part of Victoria Academies multi-academy trust based in the West Midlands, with the aim of creating a family of standout schools.

We believe that learning should be active and creative. We encourage children to embrace challenge and celebrate success and are very proud of our unique curriculum which is purposeful and diverse. We have clear values and aim to develop well rounded, independent children, preparing them for future careers by giving them the learning experiences they need to make a positive contribution to the wider world.

I hope you will take a good look around our website to see what we do . . .

ACADEMY COUNCIL

Our Academy Council is made up of members from the local community, including parents and staff. Unlike some other Academies, we do not have a sponsor and remain entirely independent. The Academy Council is responsible for overseeing the educational direction of the school to ensure all our children achieve as well as they can.
Councillors meet once per half term. All Councillors are expected to make a formal visit to the school each year to monitor the impact of their decisions and the progress the Headteacher is making towards securing school improvement.

To understand how our Academy Council fits into the wider Trust Governance Structure please visit https://victoriaacademiestrust.org/about-us/governance/

From time to time we have vacancies for a Parent Academy Council member. If you would like to know more about being a Parent Academy Councillor or would like to be considered as a Parent Councillor when the next vacancy arises please contact the school to let us know.

Chair: Amber Marshall (Parent) Appointed Summer 2020, elected by the AC, for 2 years.
