Our Church School
Diocese of Leicester
Our school is a Church of England school in the Diocese of Leicester. You can find out more about the Diocese of Leicester through their website by clicking here. Or if you would like to find out about their specific work with schools click here. (disclaimer: We have no control over the content of external websites.)
We have strong links with the Diocese and with the churches in the ecclesiastical parishes we serve. Details of the churches in our area can be found below:
At the present time there is no appointed incumbent for the Parish of Gilmorton. The Parish of Gilmorton is part of the Avon Swift group of churches which also covers the Parishes of Ashby Magna, Kimcote cum Walton and Peatling Parva. Whilst there is currently no-one in post, the parishes are served by a dedicated team who endeavour to carry on the work of the Church in our area. Visits to the school to deliver live / virtual collective worship, as well as support for the teaching of religious education continue during this period of time in a reduced capacity.
The school would regularly hold collective worship at All Saints Church in Gilmorton. Parents, carers and relatives would also be invited to worship alongside us on these occasions.
Mrs Rachel Spadaccini, our religious education coordinator, is a Lead RE teacher for the Leicester Diocesan Board of Education.
The following are some highlights from our 2019 SIAMS Inspection Report:
‘ The biblical basis of the school’s vision has a clear impact in all areas of school life. It is transformational and enables all members of the school community to flourish.
Support for the mental health and wellbeing of all stakeholders is exceptional. Care and support is both practical and compassionate and ensures both adults and pupils can thrive in relationships based on Christian love and hope.
Pupils are inspired by RE and use their knowledge to think critically. They are confident in discussing their religious beliefs and can reflect on how issues may affect them personally.
Pupils are articulate and reflective learners, they are eager to share their ideas and opinions openly and honestly, relating sensitively to each other whatever their race, gender, faith or disability.
Leadership is RE is exemplary. It is inclusive, proactive and extends pupils understanding of different world faiths and cultures. ‘
