Our Vision and Values

The Flying High Trust was established in June 2012 with an outstanding Nottinghamshire school as the founder member. Since then we have grown to seventeen schools with further schools looking to join in the coming years.

The ethos behind the Trust is one of sustainable school improvement; schools joining the Trust do so with the prime aim of improving themselves and each other so that they can all become outstanding schools driven by a self-improving system. This is achieved through the development and embedding of the professional continuum; attracting high calibre trainees to our School Centred Initial Teacher Training programme, nurturing talent, providing high quality bespoke CPD to shape careers and ensuring we grow our own inspirational school leaders. Together we can achieve excellence. This ethos is guided by our core principles:

  • Children first - at the heart of every decision is 'will this benefit our children'?
  • Aspiration for all - children, staff, families and local communities to aim high and dream big. Look back with pride and forward with confidence.
  • Ensuring our schools are at the heart of their communities, leading social change.
  • Supporting meaningful partnerships - schools that support and challenge each other to become the best schools in the universe through mutual accountability.
  • A commitment to continuous improvement - to strive to provide the best opportunities for our children so that they can look back with pride and forward with confidence.
  • Primary led - this is our area of passion and expertise and we focus on developing the whole child and each child as an individual.

We aim for our schools to be the best schools in the universe! 

By the end of their primary education we aim for all of our children to be ready for secondary school and be inspired to be the best they can be through our seven values:

  • Aspiration
  • Confidence
  • Creativity
  • Enjoyment
  • Perseverance
  • Pride
  • Responsibility

The values are fundamental to everything the Trust represents; they run through all elements of school improvement and are understood and owned by all members of the school community. Schools with their own clear USP linked to their values blend together the Trust values with those held so dear within each individual school.
