Glade Hill Primary & Nursery School works with many partners to ensure that we provide the best education, resources and information for all of our pupils and their parents or carers.
We are classed as a Local Authority maintained school so have close links with Nottingham City Council who provide advice and support in areas such as behaviour management, special educational needs and human resources. They also have statutory responsibilities for safeguarding and we follow all of their advice and policies.
We work with the local family of schools under the Aspire Learning Partnership which includes 6 other primary schools and 2 local secondary schools. Regular meetings are held across a wide range of curriculum and support areas where moderation of work takes place. All of the primary schools have adopted a set of Common Attendance Principles and Attendance Improvement Officers are employed across the partnership to assist in raising levels of attendance and punctuality. The school has also appointed a PE & School Sports Specialist alongside some other school in the partnership to raise the standard of physical education taught and provide additional extra-curricular opportunities.
The school is part of the Challenge Partners network which supports Senior Leadership Teams within schools by sharing best practice and challenging school's judgments of their own work through annual review visits (see reports below). This also involves hosting Leadership Development Days for Senior Leaders from across the country to learn from our school's best practice.
We also work with the Transform Teaching School Alliance who provide quality training opportunities for staff. The school supports their School Direct Teacher programme for trainee teachers by assisting with interviews and providing placement opportunities. The Assistant Head Teacher is trained as a Specialist Leader of Education through this partnership and provides support and training within the Maths Hub. The Inclusion Leader and SENCO is also trained as a Specialist Leader of Education.
The school is part of the Nottingham Music Hub which provides whole class instrumental tuition in brass to our pupils in Years 4 and 5.
