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.

Each school has an Academy Council, which comprise one Trustee, the Head Teacher, and a number of non-Trustee members. Academy Council's are chaired by one of its members – not necessarily the Trustee.
