Recently we have been successful in achieving condition improvement fund grants to complete the following works:
- Full refurbishment of all children’s toilet facilities
- Repairs to pitched and flat rooves
- Replacement of single glazed windows and doors
- Emergency repairs to boundary wall
- Refurbishment of school hall
We’ve employed a number of additional staff to support children with significant needs. In addition, small group or one-to-one tuition was put in place to accelerate the progress of targeted children and those entitled to pupil premium funding.
Using the PE and sports funding, we were able to offer a number of alternative after school clubs, for example, golf, tennis, yoga and archery. Specific year groups accessed outdoor pursuits activities and teaching staff attended relevant professional development opportunities to enhance the teaching of PE.
The school achieved the following awards:
- Beyond Bullying
- Food for Life Partnership (Silver)
- Science Mark (Silver)
- Activemark (Silver)
On the 1st June 2017, Gilmorton Chandler C of E Primary School formed and subsequently became part of the Inspiring Primaries Academy Trust. This change came about due to the ongoing work of our Local Governing Body in consultation and collaboration with eight other local primary schools, the Leicester Diocesan Board of Education and the Regional Schools Commissioner.
