Our school is a fantastic place to be – we have a dedicated team who support our children, we strive for excellence and are united in providing experiences that will support children in their life-long learning. We encourage all children to have high aspirations – giving them experiences and a voice to aspire to whatever they wish to be. The well-being of our children is equally important to us and we put this at the heart of everything that we do for our pupils and their families. Our well-being team are well known in the community and provide a service that enhances, nurtures, and supports our families where and when needed.
We work hard to ensure that our environment is safe and secure but also bright and colourful that reflects the high-quality learning that takes place. We strongly believe that children will achieve their full potential when they also have the support of their parents and local community, therefore as a school we work hard to build these relationships.
Our school values centre around four key areas – ‘Aspiration,’ ‘Fortitude,’ ‘Unity,’ and ‘Innovation.’ We divide all our children into four ‘Houses’ named after these values and we meet regularly, allowing children of all ages across the school to work together on a shared theme. These events encompass all our values providing our children with the skills to communicate, investigate, imagine and to be brave to use their voices to share ideas.
Mowmacre Hill Primary School is immensely proud of the Mowmacre Hill community, but we also work further afield with other Primary schools. We are part of the Discovery Schools Academy Trust which consists of 13 other schools across Leicester City, Leicestershire, and Rutland. We have the privilege of working with Teachers and Staff members from all these schools to share ideas and practice, of which then goes towards enhancing the learning experiences for our children. Collaboration is particularly important to us and ensures that our pupils and families receive experiences which are current and reflective of excellent teaching and learning.
