About Us

Glenmere Community Primary School opened in 1964 and is set in spacious grounds.

It is an attractive and friendly school combining the advantages of separate classrooms with the flexibility of shared working areas.

The school provides an atmosphere which is conducive to learning, building a firm foundation for further education and developing the skills required to make children secure and worthy members of society.

Glenmere is a Primary School for boys and girls from the ages of 4 to 10. Children join the 4+ in the Autumn term after their 4th birthday. Key Stage 1 is for children in years 1 and 2 and Key Stage 2 is for children in years 3 to 6. Children transfer to Wigston Academy or Beauchamp College for years 7.

We believe that your child must be at the centre of all we seek to achieve at Glenmere. We are concerned with the all round development of the children in our care. We help them to have a lively interest in the world in which they live, to acquire knowledge and develop new skills.

We recognise that children develop at different rates, possess a variety of skills and abilities, have different needs and display a range of personalities and interests.

We are committed to developing the full potential of every child, regardless of ability and we value the contributions and achievements of all the children accordingly. We believe that we must work in close partnership with parents in order to achieve this.

We encourage children to take maximum advantage of the opportunities available to them as they continue through their formal education to become active participants in a fast-changing world.

In this section you will find Key information about our school. If there is something you are looking for that you cannot find, contact the office manager Mrs Fitzgibbon on 0116 2882228 and we will be happy to help.
