Isobelle B

Congratulations to Isobelle B, who was a finalist in the Leicester Mercury awards for Beating The Odds. Isobelle was the youngest finalist at the awards. She was awarded for being such a brave young lady after the sudden and tragic death of her father. Isobelle, has proven herself to be the most resilient young lady, continued to come to school every day, work hard and showing exemplary behaviour despite battling with immense sadness. This is all something we know her father would be so proud of her for.

School Games Mark Gold Award

We are pleased to announce that Glenmere achieved the School Games Mark Gold Award for the second year in a row.

The School Games Mark is a government led awards scheme that was launched in 2012. The aim is to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school.

School Games Mark applications are divided into areas:

Participation – How many young people at your school are engaged in sporting activity?

Competition – How many sports are being played and how many competitions are being entered?

Workforce – How many pupils are involved in leadership activities alongside taking part in competitions?

Clubs – How many local links does your school have with clubs or establishments from the area?

Route to Resilience

In the 2017/18 academic year, we successfully attended and completed Route to Resilience training. Route to resilience is an evidence-based and practical approach to supporting schools and families in their work developing the emotional well-being and resilience of children and young people.

Glenmere Primary School was one of the 95 across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland to complete the programme, an achievement we are proud of.

As part of the programme we submitted an accreditation tool that evidenced the implementation of Route to Resilience in our school. I am pleased to confirm that we are now a Route to Resilience accredited school.

New Lubbesthorpe Primary School

We are delighted that the New Lubbesthorpe Primary School will be the sixth school in our family, and will join our established, thriving group of schools within the OWLS Academy Trust.
