From ‘Requires Improvement to Outstanding’ in 2 years

By Cathy Heels, Headteacher, Nishkam Primary School Birmingham

Nishkam Primary School opened in September 2011 as a two-form entry school. It was the first Free School in Birmingham and one of only the first 16 free schools in the country. Our pupils are happy and well-adjusted individuals who have a very strong sense of community.

The school is part of the multi-academy trust of schools known as the Nishkam School Trust. It is a multi-faith school with a Sikh ethos, with up to half of its admission places being open to children of all faiths and the remaining half to those of none. At almost 45%, the proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is above average.
