Arnesby Church of England Primary School

Welcome from Ruth James, Headteacher

Welcome to Arnesby Church of England Primary School.

Arnesby is a wonderful school and although small in size, it has a big heart.  Welcome to our school website.

We hope that you will find your visit informative and that it provides information with a flavour of some of our school activities. We are all enormously proud of all our pupils and the individual contribution each one of them brings to make school life special. We have wonderful children, a dedicated staff team, supportive parents and we are part of a great community. We benefit from small classes with a unique place in our village community.

Christian values and ethos are at the heart of the school.  Our aim is to provide children with a high-quality education, where purposeful learning, interesting stimulus and a full partnership between teachers and parents encourage each child to reach their maximum potential. Within a safe, friendly and caring environment, pupils are encouraged to develop their academic, physical, spiritual and emotional capacities. The school helps children recognise their place in the community, to be life-long learners, ready to be active citizens and to accept their responsibilities as they grow up and contribute positively to society; locally, to feel part of the wider, more diverse community of Leicestershire, and nationally and globally in their understanding of the world around them so that they can be a real part of building a peaceful future.

The school has many strong links with the community taking part in competitions, festivals, charity fundraising events, community events and visiting our church.  The church family are regular visitors to our school.  We believe that our school is a place where every child feels special and loved by God for who they are and we hope that every child understands they have something unique and special to offer.

Children are encouraged to become independent, creative learners who also respect and care for others.  We are proud of our nurturing ethos for everyone where our children have a strong sense of belonging.  Staff know and care for the children with a genuine concern so that every child feels valued, safe and happy in school.

Our strong and supportive culture is secured by a real sense of partnership between home and school.  Parents, carers and relatives are welcomed into school, and we value their views, ideas and expertise, which help to enrich our school.  The school also benefits from the support of an active Parent, Staff Association (PTA).

This website can only give you a snapshot of life in our school.  To find out more, please come and visit us to see and feel for yourself what we have to offer.

Please contact us either by phone or by sending an email to make an appointment to come and see us.  We look forward to meeting you and sharing more of the life of Arnesby School with you.
