Croxton Kerrial CE Primary School
Croxton Kerrial CE Primary School is surrounded by beautiful rural countryside, close to the historic Belvoir Castle with ease of access to local secondary schools, including nearby post- 11 grammar schools. It is located just outside Grantham, Lincolnshire, and near to Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire; both towns having access to national railways. It has strong links with their local community including the church and partnership schools; it is part of the Vale School Cluster which is overseen by an experienced Executive Head Teacher.
Croxton Kerrial is a friendly, welcoming school that can cater for up to 84 pupils aged 4 to 11 and has a thriving before and after school child care facility. The school has maintained its Good standard, which has been reflected in the grade awarded to the school by Ofsted (2019).
With God's guidance, we demonstrate a passionate commitment to inspiring a love of learning. We celebrate the uniqueness of each individual and together with parents, the church and wider community, we seek to discover the potential within all our children, preparing them to be happy, aspirational, kind and responsible citizens within our diverse society.
“Let all that you do be done with love.” 1 Corinthians 16:14
‘Inspiring a Love for Learning.’
At our school, guided by Christian and British values, we maintain that learning should be an exciting and enjoyable experience for everyone (adults and children); it should be fun and interactive, challenging and celebratory so a love for learning deepens.
Our Christian values support our spiritual, moral, social and cultural development as we grow and learn together in a happy, safe, aspirational environment. Through God’s example, we celebrate the uniqueness of each individual and endeavour to unlock their full potential. We inspire and enable our children to contribute to and thrive in a diverse society through promoting the following core values:
Kindness, Peace, Hope, Forgiveness and Respect
In so doing, our vision is that our whole community will actively demonstrate: “Let all that you do be done with love.”
“Leaders and governors are determined to make the school as good as it can be. You have created an ethos where pupils’ happiness and well-being are at the heart of the work of the school.”
A high percentage of pupils at Croxton Kerrial continue to meet their expected standard in reading, writing and maths at a rate above the national and local authority average. The school has maintained these results for the past three years.
