History of our School
At Measham Church of England Primary, we pride ourselves on being at the centre of the community, providing a safe, happy, welcoming environment for children, parents and visitors. Children are encouraged to work both individually and cooperatively and to appreciate both their efforts and the efforts of others. We encourage all prospective parents to visit our school to see our fantastic learning environment.
Measham Church of England Primary became an academy 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 an average 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 one 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 in September 1976.
The current accommodation comprises the main building, housing: 8 classrooms, a library, a music studio, group rooms, 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 own and four other local schools. The adjoining village recreation ground is often used for various activities.
Within the 5 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 a climbing wall, two outdoor classrooms, a quiet area and extensive grassed and planted areas.
More recently, we have been joined on our site by the local Children’s Centre, providing opportunities of support and guidance for local families. We also have a nursery on site, the ‘Lively Learners’.
National School of Measham
The school was rated as ‘Good’, during the most recent Ofsted report in April 2015. The report identified that ‘the care, guidance and support given to pupils’ by staff in the school was excellent. We pride ourselves on being a place “Where happy children flourish.”
The school has a new Executive Headteacher, Sylvie Newman, who took up her post in September 2016, it is her aim to work tirelessly to ensure that Measham continues to go from strength to strength.
