Children's Parliament!!


On Wednesday 21st March, our Transform Trust Parliament Members were lucky enough to be able to hold their meeting at the Nottingham City Council House. They were joined by the Sheriff of Nottingham and were treated to a tour of the building. The meeting was chaired by our new Chair and Vice Chair who took excellent control and direction of the meeting. It was another incredibly successful meeting with ideas discussed and decisions made. Thank you very much to the Civic Office for arranging this for us. What a fabulous experience for the children (and the staff too!)






Trust V Trust Footie Tournament!!


On Friday 23rd March Transform Trust hosted the rematch of the Transform vs Discovery Trust Football Tournament. Three teams from Discovery Trust in Leicester made the journey to Powerleague Soccer Dome in Derby to play three teams from Transform. After a hard morning of football, Discovery Trust won the tournament by 2 points and took home the overall Trophy. Following their hard work, the children were then treated to a tour of Pride Park Stadium. Huge thanks to Derby County Community Team who ran the event for us and organised the Tours. The event was another huge successful and we hope to continue our Trust v Trust relationship in the future.

Transform Trust Times Tables World Cup 2018!!


On Friday 16th March, we held our inaugural maths times-table event at Robert Shaw Primary School.  14 schools took part in the event, bringing along 90 children from Years 3 and 4. Each school held their own internal competitions to determine which of their pupils would qualify for the final ‘World Cup’ event.


Dr North started the day off with introductions and rules (which included no brain explosions!) followed by some funky dancing to wake up the brains ready to work!


The children took part in individual competitions, pairs competitions (where they were paired with a child from another school) and then finally two representatives from each school were put forward for the Overall School round which was a knock out style competition. Congratulations to Bulwell St Mary’s Primary School who took the overall Year 4 title with Whitegate Primary School as runners up. Congratulations to William Booth who won the Yr 3 overall competition with Whitegate Primary School as runners up. Congratulations also to the winners of the individual and pairs competitions.


It was a brilliant morning of maths fun!  The atmosphere was fantastic, the children were incredibly engaged and enthusiastic and all made new friends from other schools across the Trust. There was not a child (or staff member) without a huge smile on their face. Following the huge success of the event it looks set to become another firm annual fixture in the Transform Trust calendar. Bringing the children of the Trust together through various events and competitions has proved to be an incredibly positive and fulfilling opportunity for all involved.


We were also fortunate to have the High Sheriff of Nottingham join us. He opened the event with words of encouragement for the children as well as handing out the prizes to all of our winners. Whilst at the school, he was also treated to a tour by School Council members as well as joining in a lunchtime Sheriff’s Challenge session, which is run by the schools’ Young Ambassador Sports Leaders.


Thanks to all staff involved in organising the day and thanks to Robert Shaw Primary School for hosting us.

The children took part in a whole host of activities ranging from active maths sessions for the Early Years Children to netball and circuits for the older children, all completed with huge smiles on their faces! Keeping fit and healthy whilst raising money for a fantastic cause. Well done to all at Allenton for such a fantastically organised and fun week!!

6Edale Rise Primary School - National Women's Day - 8th March!!


On 8th March, Edale-Rise Primary School celebrated Women’s Day across the whole school. Leanora came to talk to each class about women’s rights and the importance of choice for all children and adults. The children heard about some famous women in history and Leanora bought all classes a book about inspirational women. We then had a discussion about equal rights. It was a fantastic day of learning and fun for the children!


Thank you Leanora for inspiring our children!
