About Us

About Us

The Office of the Regional Schools Commissioner (RSC) approved plans for Normanby Primary School to be joined in the Ironstone Academy Trust (IAT) by Nunthorpe Primary School, Ormesby Primary School and Zetland Primary School in early May 2016, subsequently we were joined by Riverdale Primary School.

An award of a Capacity Building Grant was made by DfE to IAT of £75,000, following an application made by Normanby Primary School.  The Trust is an improved Academy Sponsor.

The Trust operates with a Chief Executive Officer (CEO) who supports the Trustees in holding individual schools to account. Carl Faulkner, Executive Head Teacher at Normanby Primary School is the CEO of the Trust.

The Trust annually reviews its working arrangements; in the previous academic year we have updated our Financial Handbook and Scheme of Delegation.  We consider opportunities for further expansion very carefully.  Our priority isn’t growth, it’s meeting the needs of our staff and pupils.

Schools interested in joining the Trust should contact Carl Faulkner at Normanby Primary School in the first instance.
