Chair of Governors Welcome

On behalf of the Governing Body, I would like to welcome you to Tiverton Academy.

Tiverton Academy is a thriving primary school, with the wellbeing of its children at its core.  The importance of the primary school experience in forming the foundations of the young people and adults our children will become cannot be underestimated, and so we strive to make sure all our children get the best start possible.  We have high expectations of all our children, and these expectations are frequently not only met, but exceeded, in the traditional academic areas as measured in tests and exams, through their achievements in the Arts, Music, and Dance, and by their positive and enthusiastic approach to learning.

The Governing Body is proud to play a part in this, supporting the Principal and Staff in providing a safe and effective school environment, and rising to the challenge of ensuring the school remains Outstanding – high expectations are not just for the children!  It is truly a privilege to work with such dedicated Staff, and to see the children grow, flourish and discover their individual talents.
