The incumbent of the Parish of Gilmorton is the Rev’d Emma Davies. Her role also covers the Parishes of Ashby Magna, Kimcote cum Walton and Peatling Parva. The Rev’d Emma is a valuable member of our school’s local governing body. She regularly visits the school to deliver collective worship and also supports with the teaching of religious education.
The school regularly holds collective worship at All Saints Church in Gilmorton. Parents, carers and relatives are 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 latest SIAMS Inspection Report:
‘ There is a strong presence of the school’s Christian community, reaching out to include and involve others in the learning environment…
The values and beliefs based on ‘the fruits of the Spirit’ are known and understood by all members of the school and lived out daily in their lives both at school and at home…
Behaviour is excellent with parents recognising good manners…
The school recognises the value and uniqueness of each child, providing a safe and welcoming place for each individual…
The headteacher, staff and governors explicitly promote the distinct Christian vision of the school. The headteacher is well supported by the local incumbent who plays an active role in the life of the school and local community. School self-evaluation is based on robust systems of school improvement. ‘
