Redmile CE Primary School
Redmile CE Primary School is a small village primary school set in an idyllic rural location in the heart of the stunning Vale of Belvoir. The school is surrounded by beautiful countryside and is overlooked by the historic Belvoir Castle; it is located near Grantham, Newark, Nottingham and Melton Mowbray, making it popular with commuters to the big cities as the national rail links are excellent. It is also very close to excellent secondary schools, including post-11 grammar schools.
Redmile can cater for up to 105 pupils between the ages of 4 and 11. The original school opened in 1871 with permanent extensions to the school being added in 2009, 2010 and 2018 to allow the school to take in more children. There is also wrap-around care before and after school. 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.
The school has continued to improve over the last 3 years, which has been reflected in the Good grade awarded to the school by Ofsted.
