Nottingham Academy continues to be a GOOD school– Ofsted, 2015.
Our whole academy community is single-minded in its belief that every pupil can achieve, irrespective of their starting point.
We are traditional in our approach to standards in order to maintain a positive and respectful climate for learning. We rigorously and consistently enforce our code of conduct, expect pupils to attend regularly and contribute to the life of our academy. The strong relationships which exist between our staff and young people ensures that our academy is a calm, orderly and purposeful environment where pupils can enjoy their learning, make accelerated progress and feel safe.
Following an extensive capital building programme the academy provides new and refurbished buildings which offer pupils and staff an outstanding learning environment.
The academy offers a fantastic setting for training and development and is dedicated to the professional development of staff, including opportunities for research. The GDFT maximises its status and size by running trust wide training and CPD events for staff. This ensures a highly trained, empowered and stable workforce.
The GDFT has a central team of staff whose responsibility it is to offer outstanding levels of support and service, whilst taking away the bureaucratic burdens that stop staff getting on with the job of working with pupils, staff and parents. The range of central services includes HR, finance, health and safety, procurement, catering, IT and buildings.
