    Together we inspire and succeed

    Welcome and thank you for taking an interest in Ullesthorpe Church of England Primary School

Our Values

As a Church of England primary school, we aim to provide a safe, secure and nurturing learning environment where each child can grow in God’s love. Twelve Christian values are at the heart of our ethos and curriculum – friendship, thankfulness, forgiveness, trust, peace, hope, service, compassion, justice, endurance, wisdom and community. We have strong links with St Peter's Church, Claybrooke Parva.

Ullesthorpe CE Primary School is a Church of England school aiming to deliver excellent results across the curriculum

The Curriculum

We endeavour to provide our children with a broad range of learning opportunities throughout their time with us. Class based activities are enhanced through the use of stimulating resources, our spacious outdoor environment, excursions to well chosen destinations and residential visits. We also make use of outside individuals and groups to extend children’s learning beyond what we can provide ourselves. The curriculum for each class can be found on the class pages links.

The children and staff came together to raise a superb £300 for Children in Need.

PTA -Parent Teacher Association

PTA stands for Parent Teacher Association, – parents, teachers and other staff working together to provide occasions where the children and their families can have fun together and raise money for the school at the same time. All parents, grandparents, and relatives are considered to be a PTA member and are welcome not only to support the fundraising, but also to enjoy the social interaction it offers. Our latest newsletter can be found on the documents tab under newsletters.

We are a small but active group that bring parents and staff together with a mutual interest in supporting our school. We raise money for non-curricular activities or to provide additional resources for the children that cannot be squeezed from the school budget. For example, we have provided the outside shelter and a variety of play equipment. We also fund the coaches for educational trips and the annual panto.

Our current target

We are currently fundraising to enhance our school grounds, library and computing equipment. Our targets are ambitious – could you help to make them a reality?

How can I support the fundraising efforts?

You don’t have to attend meetings to support our school. However You can:

  • Feed in fundraising ideas to a PTA member. Perhaps you are part of other organisations that have run successful fundraising events?
  • Source donations? Do you know people or places that give to charitable organisations in either money, support or equipment?
  • Support the events/activities organised for both children or adults
  • Arrange charitable donations offered by your workplace? Does your employer undertake money match schemes, corporate donations or other charity support?

All our events are well attended, are lots  of fun and raise money for the school.If you have any ideas to share, can offer donations or time please contact Suzanne Dibble, Paula Leary  or Liz Keenan or alternatively see the school office.

Our Governing Body

Our instrument of government states:
“Recognising its historic foundation, the school will preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and in partnership with the church at parish and diocesan level.”

The Governing Body is a voluntary, corporate one fulfilling a largely
strategic role in the running of the school. Parent governors are representative parents rather than representatives of parents. The Headteacher has responsibility for the internal organisation, management and control of the school and for the implementation of the strategic framework established by the Local Governing Body. The Local Governing Body meets each half term. The Pay Committee meets annually and working groups meet as required. Please see ‘Our Governing Body’ in ‘other documents’ on the documents page for more detailed information.

Ullesthorpe Primary School is committed to working in close partnership with all members of the school community. We aim to be a warm, welcoming school with positive relationships between all members of the school community and we strive to provide an outstanding education for all our children, placing great value on the role which parents and carers can play in supporting children’s learning. If, at any time, you have a concern about an aspect of life at the school, the concern will be dealt with by the school as quickly, sympathetically and effectively as possible. In the first instance, please discuss your concern with your child’s class teacher. If you are still concerned, please speak to a member of the School Leadership Team. At this stage, if your concern cannot be resolved, please contact the Chair of Governors.
