Queniborough C.E. Primary School is an ex Voluntary Controlled school with a caring, Christian ethos, which converted to Academy Status on November 1st 2012. A special feature of the school is its inclusive nature and the care and concern shown for each member of the school community.
We have strong links with the local Anglican Church and village community. The school has very attractive grounds, which are used beneficially for outdoor learning activities. The original National School building is in the centre of the village and now houses our small swimming pool. The present school was built between 1953 & 1966 in four major phases.
Approximately half of our learners live in the village of Queniborough with the other half from Syston and neighbouring villages. We are single form entry. At present we have 203 children in school. We are viewed positively in the local area.
The building has the usual facilities including a hall, and ICT suite. The playgrounds, sports field, daily mile track, outdoor gym and grassed areas provide ample space for children to play and participate in the programme of physical education. We have recently established a designated Forest school area within the grounds.
Children start at Queniborough in the September before their fifth birthday and transfer to Wreake Valley Academy or other schools in Syston/Melton Mowbray/Loughborough at eleven years of age, after Year 6.
Queniborough has a varied catchment area covering a wide range of social backgrounds with a wide range of housing, from council estates to large privately owned properties. In each cohort, there is a wide range of ability, which is reflected in the attainment of pupils at every stage.
Queniborough was last inspected in October 2018 and was judged to be good. Our SIAMS inspection was in May 2016 and the school was judged as outstanding.
