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.
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.
