Hucknall Flying High Academy is a primary school with a nursery. We take pupils from age 2 – 11.
We have a two storey building, including 8 classrooms and a hall, which is used for both lunchtimes and PE. We also have an Extended Provision facility. We have a large playground plus a small enclosed playground for nursery and a large field within the school grounds. We have a disabled toilet and hygiene suite. Our playgrounds and fields are part of a secure site that has fences surrounding them. We have a forest school facility, that we are currently developing, on the school field.
Admissions to school are made through Nottinghamshire County Council Admissions.
We are an inclusive school and aim for all children to be fully included. We differentiate teaching and learning tasks to suit the needs of the learner. When a child's needs are identified by teaching staff, interventions and resources are be put into place to support their learning and meet their individual needs.
Children are identified as having Special Educational Needs if their progress has slowed or stopped and interventions and resources put in place do not enable improvement. At this point, the child is listed on our ‘SEND register’ and parents are informed. We introduce pupil provision maps which timetable support and specific targets are set to enable development and accelerate progress. Three times a year parents are invited to school to meet with the class teacher and SENCo and review targets and support. We work closely with Local Authority Specialist Teachers.
The school SENCo coordinates support for children with additional needs in school. In addition to this a number of staff have had training on supporting pupils with additional needs.
Where necessary, transition support can be coordinated for children when they start or leave school, this includes visits by the staff and pupils, including extra visits for those who require them as well as sharing information with new schools.
