Netherfield becomes Academy
Netherfield Primary School officially becomes an academy today (1st March) after joining the Greater Nottingham Education Trust (GNET).
Netherfield joins founder school Carlton le Willows in the local Multi Academy Trust after the Department of Education gave the green light to the move earlier last year.
Since the go-ahead for conversion, the partnership between Carlton le Willows and Netherfield Primary has gone from strength to strength. All staff have been working together with a shared vision and ambition to work for the benefit of children in both schools.
Netherfield Primary School head teacher Peter Hardern said: “Today is the day we officially join the Greater Nottingham Education Trust but we have actually been working closely with Carlton le Willows for many months now and the results of this collaboration are clear - better teaching, better learning and greater consistency on policy, such as attendance and governance.
“We look forward to an even closer, child focused, partnership which will serve the needs of our children from the age of three right until they are eighteen.”
