"Pupils behave well. They feel very safe, are polite and attend school regularly" Ofsted June 2014
Queensmead Primary Academy opened its doors in November 2012 as the first primary academy in Leicester City sponsored by the Greenwood Academies Trust (formerly known as the Greenwood Dale Foundation Trust) - which was formed in 2009 and now educates approximately 16,000 pupils across seven local authority areas including Nottingham City, Nottinghamshire, Leicester City, Northamptonshire, Peterborough, Lincolnshire and Central Bedfordshire.
"Pupils make good progress during their time at the academy and attain broadly average standards in English and Mathematics" Ofsted - June 2014
The Academy serves a long-standing local community in the Braunstone area of Leicester. We operate in an open culture with ambitious staff, very well supported by the Trust who are committed to accelerating our progress for the benefit of our 460 pupils and for the future of Queensmead. We've come a long way and continue to grow year by year and day by day.
"There is a very positive learning environment in the school and pupils have good attitudes to their work" Ofsted June 2014
The Academy is exceptionally well resourced and all our classrooms have an interactive whiteboard, overhead projectors, modern resources and clean and tidy spaces, all teachers are equipped with a laptop. There's an excellent ICT room, a soundproof music room and fully stocked Library and the extended services within the Academy are some of the best within the Trust. Our spacious building and extensive grounds offer some of the best facilities children and parents could wish for; we strive to continually improve and update these spaces to meet the changing needs of our learners.
"The quality of teaching is good with some outstanding practice. Teachers show that they have high expectations for what all pupils can achieve" Ofsted June 2014
We aim to continue our recent improvements as an Academy and are committed to further improving quality and standards in a swift yet sustainable manner. The scene is securely set for Queensmead to tackle its challenges and to raise standards even further!
"Parents and carers speak highly of the work of the academy and are very pleased with its support for their children" Ofsted June 2014
