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 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. ‘
