Academy Advisory Board

The Academy Advisory Board (AAB) would like to welcome you to The Vale Academy.  We are responsible for both supporting and challenging the Senior Leadership Team.  Since the outstanding Ofsted review of March 2013 the AAB continues to support and challenge the academy Senior Leadership Team.  The AAB continually witnesses the energy and commitment shown by Dr Stokes and her team to maintain the Ofsted assessment of Outstanding in Leadership & Management, and the outstanding assessment of the Behaviour and Safety of students.  The team works tirelessly to improve on the assessment of Good in both the achievement of students and the quality of teaching.  We are very proud of our Ofsted success but work continually to improve educational standards at The Vale Academy.
