Stansfield Academy is an Alternative Provision Academy providing full time education for children from 4-16 years of age. We cover Central Devon including Exeter, East Devon and Mid Devon and work closely with Devon County Council to ensure a swift transition both into and out of the Academy to minimise the impact of any transition on the learning of those young people.
Vicki has been working in education for over 20 years. She started in mainstream as a history teacher before becoming a Head of Department. In 2006 she made the move to alternative provision, where she has been a Principal since 2011. Vicki is passionate about ensuring that excluded children are provided with the very best support and education so that they can achieve their goals and ambitions. In her spare time Vicki enjoys spending time with her horse, Pip.
I have worked in mainstream primary schools for fifteen years teaching across all Key Stages including Early Years Foundation Stage. During this time I took the role of SENDCo and Key Stage One Leader. Alongside teaching, my main focus was working with individual children to support and develop their social, emotional and behavioural needs. I pride myself on building positive relationships with children to help them achieve their full potential. I am delighted to have joined CDA as the Learning and Standards Manager in Primary since September 2016.

At Stansfield Academy, our curriculum is based around the National Curriculum. Our Learning Journeys ensure that all themes are cohesive, relevant and that children make progress, whilst enjoying their learning. The learning is presented through half termly themes which are created to form Learning Journeys for the children.
The themes of the Journeys have been selected to:
• Meet the needs of the children
• Cover the legal requirements of the National Curriculum
• Inspire and excite the children to promote independent learning
We believe that this gives us opportunities for flexibility and more individualised learning programmes. Through this design for learning, we aim to teach the children how to grow into positive, responsible and successful adults whilst developing knowledge and skills in order that they may achieve their full potential.
