Enabling children to flourish and succeed

Our School

At Measham Church of England Primary, we strive to provide a warm, caring atmosphere where individuals feel valued, respected and confident to accept challenges and experience success. Children are encouraged to work both individually and cooperatively and to appreciate their own efforts and those of others. We would encourage all prospective parents to visit our school to see our working environment.

Measham Church of England Primary achieved academy status on the 1st of December 2012. It is a co-educational primary school, in Leicestershire, for children from the ages of four to eleven years. It is a medium sized school with around 200 children on roll.

The school began in 1830, when the National School of Measham was built in Cross Lane [later Queen Street]. It had 1 teacher and was funded by voluntary contributions with very close links with the Church of England - links which remain today. The transfer of all children to the new school on Bosworth Road was completed by September 1976.

The current accommodation comprises the main building housing: 8 classrooms, a library, a music studio, an ICT suite, hall/dining room, cookery room, art area, medical room, quiet room for group work and administration rooms. We have a kitchen on site, where meals are cooked for our school and four other local schools. The adjoining village recreation ground is often used for various activities.

Within the five acres of school grounds, there are a variety of tree species creating a partial wooded area by the school field. There are two playgrounds with exercise equipment, a climbing wall, two outdoor classrooms and extensive grassed and planted areas.

We share our site with the local Children’s Centre, providing opportunities of support and guidance for local families. 

The school was rated as ‘Good’, during the most recent Ofsted inspections in November 2018. The report identified that ‘The school’s motto, ‘Where happy children flourish’, underpins the shared vision for the school. The values of ‘hope, peace, respect, thankfulness, forgiveness and love’ are lived out in the school.'
