We are confident that you will find us a welcoming school â€“ one where your child will flourish and realise their potential, whatever that potential might be.

Flying High Partnership
The Flying High Trust is a partnership ofÂ schools across Nottinghamshire, Nottingham City and Derbyshire. Schools work together to ensure we are relentless inÂ ensuring our children receive theÂ best possible opportunities andÂ experiences. This is achieved through a true collaboration where allÂ decisionsÂ centreÂ on children and schools are empowered to adopt bestÂ practice, adapt itÂ within theÂ context of each school and fly!
What it means to be part of a Flying High school:
We aim for our schools to be the best in the universe!Â
By the end of their primary education we aim forÂ all of our children to be readyÂ for secondary school and be inspired to be the best they can be through our seven values.Â The values are fundamental to everything the Trust represents; they runÂ through all elements of schoolÂ improvement and are understood and owned by all members of the school community. Schools with theirÂ own clear USP linked to their values blend together the Trust values withÂ those held so dear within eachÂ individual school.Â
As a Trust Partnership our expectation is that all schools:Â
- Demonstrate a restlessness to continually improve, to never stand still, with the ultimate aim ofproviding the best opportunities and experiences for our children.Â
- Strive to ensure every child fulfils their potential regardless of potential barriers to learning.
- Commit to become an outstanding, self-improving school and to support the profession and
- development of all schools within the partnership.
- Commit to a school-led system.
- Commit to the values, principles, policies and procedures of the Trust.
- To ultimately strive to be the best school in the Universe.
In our schools you will see we work together to:Â
- Ensure schools feel connected to the Trust whilst maintaining their unique qualities, character andÂ relationship with their community.
- Ensure high quality teaching and learning.
- Engage with ourÂ families and widerÂ communities to raise aspiration for all.
- Develop the whole child and create inquisitive learners.
- Enable all children to be confident, building on strengths and improving in areas of need.
- Enable children to understand the part they play in the world in the future – as a positive citizen and aÂ driver of business and enterprise.
- Support the development of all staff to be the best they can be and toÂ realiseÂ their career potential.

Admission Appeals and Coronavirus (Covid-19) update 30/04/2020
Unfortunately the coronavirus outbreak has impacted on the ability of schools and panels to carry out admission appeals in the usual way and therefore there may be some unavoidable delays to the commencement to appeals being held across the country. However, as parents/families must continue to have the right to appeal to any school which has refused their child a place, the Government announced regulatory changes on the 24th April 2020 to the Admissions Appeals Code which will enable hearings to take place, although it is unlikely these will be in person due to social distancing requirements.
Â Your appeal, once submitted will be forwarded to the Independent Clerk, who is currently planning again for the commencement of the appeal hearings. He will be in touch with you as soon as possible once a date has been agreed for the hearing to take place. We do fully recognise the frustration this may cause but these are unprecedented times and trust you fully understand this. Each appeal should continue to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and you will receive acknowledgment that the appeal has been received, update on the situation and contact details for the appeals clerk who will manage your appeal and keep you informed of progress, date and outcomes.
Â Assuring you of our best attention at all times.
