Our School

Rushey Mead Primary School is situated to the north of the city of Leicester serving a community that is rich in a diversity of language, faith and culture. We try to reflect this diversity in everything that we do. We celebrate our differences and similarities, aiming to make children feel both secure in and proud of their many different identities.

We admit children from the age of 3 into our nursery. Most children transfer at the age of eleven to either Rushey Mead Academy or Soar Valley College. At the present time, we have approximately 630 children on roll. The school works hard to ensure that all of our children have the opportunity to enjoy a broad, balanced and exciting curriculum. We believe that the community that we serve is entitled to expect the school to have high expectations of their children and to strive to ensure that their children achieve their maximum potential. We are particularly keen to involve parents, teachers and children in an educational partnership to support learning.
