We strive for our schools to be the best in the Universe
The ethos behind the Trust is grounded in strong moral purpose and school improvement. Each individual academy will constantly seek to improve on its previous best, while also accepting a collective responsibility for ensuring that all schools within the partnership are enabled to improve to become outstanding. All Flying High Trust schools are at the heart of the community they serve, offering the very best education, support and care; and an environment of aspiration, underpinned by the highest expectations.
Together, through the Flying High Academy Trust, we aim to:
- develop school communities where every individual can flourish and maximise their potential, and where no target is unreachable;
- provide an exciting, inspirational curriculum, grounded in literacy and mathematics and which strongly reflects 21st century technologies;
- raise attainment and achievement by empowering children, parents and the local community.
Together, we will strive to achieve excellence and for our schools to be the best in the Universe.
What we believe in
Primary ethos is crucial to success
This is a multi-academy trust for primary schools and is proud to be founded on the principles of primary education. At the core of primary ethos is getting into the heart of every child. Positive relationships, and understanding, adapting and responding to the diverse needs of individuals are central to all we do. Every child really does matter in the primary world.
Effective parental collaboration and communication
Supporting parents to be completely engaged with their child’s education is paramount to success. We pride ourselves on our collaboration and communication with parents. A firm belief in working in partnership with parents drives us to develop a wide range of ways to engage even the most hard to reach parents. This essential collaborative approach underpins the primary ethos and we feel passionate that it is not lost. Parents matter!
Commitment to raising aspirations beyond the school gates
The most successful schools impact beyond the classroom and into the wider school community. All schools in our trust serve very different and diverse communities. We aim to celebrate the uniqueness of school communities while inspiring and raising aspirations for children and their families. Flying High Trust schools will be the catalyst for whole community improvement by offering services, providing support and bringing communities together. Strengthening schools through strengthening communities is fundamental to the aims of Flying High Trust.
The power of partnership
Given the changing landscape of education, particularly the reduction of local authority capacity to support all schools, there is a danger that primary schools can become isolated. The multi-academy trust offers a great opportunity for primary schools to work together to develop and share practice; to provide development and leadership opportunities for staff; and to challenge each other to provide the highest quality teaching and learning experiences for children.
