Enabling children to flourish and succeed

Our little village primary school is filled with life, love and learning and we hope that a glimpse through these pages helps you to get a sense of this in its many forms.

We are 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. We are located just outside Grantham, Lincolnshire, and near to Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire; both towns having access to national railways. We have strong links with our local community including the church and partnership schools; we are proud to be part of the Vale School Cluster which includes the nearby schools of Redmile, Waltham-on-the-Wolds and Wymondham (all Church of England Primary Schools).

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 childcare facility. We have maintained high standards, achieving excellent results that are often above national averages, which has been reflected in the good grade awarded to the school by Ofsted (2019).

We were delighted to become an Academy within the RISE Multi-Academy Trust on 1st November 2013.

Our teaching staff includes two full-time class teachers; two part-time, job-share teachers; a Head of School; two experienced Early Years support staff; and two learning support assistants. Our pupils also benefit from the expertise of visiting music teachers and sports coaches, all of whom teach with us on a weekly basis and are very much part of the school. We also have a number of assistants and leaders who run our Penguins CReW Club extended school facility, school office and lunchtime supervision.

We have three classes, of mixed ability and gender, all vertically grouped: Reception, Year 1 and 2, Years 3 and 4 and Years 5 and 6. We have developed a rich curriculum, building on sequential knowledge and developing skills in all aspects of learning including the creative arts, with literacy and numeracy central to our work.

At Croxton Kerrial, we aim to provide a happy, caring, vibrant school that will promote high standards of personal achievement and the opportunity for full social, emotional and spiritual development of all the children in our care.

As a Church School we not only encourage our pupils to strive for excellence in the core subjects, but to broaden their education, to embrace and develop the concepts of faith and spirituality, of hope and charity and to enable them to develop into knowledgeable world citizens who love life and learning.

We are exceptionally proud of the caring, family-orientated Christian ethos we share at Croxton Kerrial; it is what makes us special.

Vision and Values

“Let all that you do be done with love.” - 1 Corinthians 16:14


School Vision

Inspiring a Love for Learning.

Our Values

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.”

Rise is a family of schools. We work with and for each other.

We currently comprise of 23 CofE and Community primary schools, Great strides have been made and we are proud of the fact that all our schools are now deemed to be’ Good’ in the eyes of Ofsted. We want, however, for that milestone to be a marker on our journey, rather than the destination itself. Our family of schools are all different shapes and sizes, serving rich and varied communities and that is one of the many things we love about our Trust.

Our vision and our values show how we place great importance on what we do and how we do it. Our values underpin our interactions with each other and strengthen our sense of family. Children are placed at the heart of everything we do. Our team of staff are skilled, hardworking and committed to developing all of your child, not just their academic ability. We recognise that success for every child will be different and we celebrate this.

We are developing and maturing as a Trust. We are ambitious. We are evolving into a Trust that is led by schools for schools. Our headteachers and talented subject leaders play an active role in Trust and school improvement. Our central team are committed to serving schools in a manner that enables them to be great schools, doing great things that enable every child in a Rise school to both ‘flourish and succeed’; and ensuring that our colleagues and communities thrive in a similar way.

Our family of schools are all different shapes and sizes, serving rich and varied communities and that is one of the many things we love about our Trust.
