About Glade Hill Primary & Nursery School

Glade Hill School is a thriving Primary & Nursery School on the outskirts of the City.

As an expanding school, we have benefitted from a £1.8m investment from Nottingham City Council and our brand new KS2 four classroom expansion is now being used by our Upper KS2 classes

We are in the process of moving to two-form entry throughout the school and currently we have two forms in all year groups except Year 6. This means currently we are a 390 place school (moving to 420 maximum capacity in Sept 2022) with a 60 part-time place Nursery. Our families are predominantly white British and approximately 40% of our children attract Pupil Premium funding. 
Located slightly to the north of the city on the border with Nottinghamshire County Council, we are a City Council school which serves a deprived area of the city but also attracts pupils from across the County border. We have become increasingly diverse over the past few years and we now have approximately 13% of children with EAL.

We are well known within the City as a highly inclusive school, with 26% of our pupils receiving support with SEND. 20 pupils receive additional top-up funding, 10 of these have a current EHCP. We currently have two dedicated Nurture support rooms where most of these pupils spend their school day receiving dedicated support for their individual needs.

We have a high proportion of children eligible for Free School Meals, currently 35.8%, which is well above the national average. Most of these pupils also attract Pupil Premium Funding and we are currently in the process of identifying those pupils that require further catch-up support to utilise the new School-Led Tutoring fund allocation.
