We aim to enrich our children's education and experiences by offering a wide range of extra opportunities.We provide an excellent range of after school clubs as well as breakfast club. Parents have the right to request wraparound and holiday care (we work in conjunction with an after school and holiday club run at Heathlane Academy called Explorer to facilitate this.)
We strongly believe in developing positive relationships between home and school and we work together in partnership to help your child grow and develop their full potential.
In 1858 the Reverend Tower drew up a Trust Deed on behalf of the Church to provide a school for the community. The school was called Weavers Close, the name was taken from the nearby 'Weavers Springs' which in the last century was dammed by the local weaving community, creating a pool for the washing and dyeing processes to be carried out.
The old school site was used up until 1994.
On 1st March 2013 Weavers Close became an academy sponsored by the Diocese of Leicester Academies Trust.
On Friday 24th August 2018, the school became known as St Simon and St Jude Church of England Primary School, to greater reflect it's Christian Ethos and to strengthen links with the Church.
Rise is a family of schools. We work with and for each other.
We currently comprise of 17 Church of England primary schools and 2 community schools, but we would like to further extend our family to non-church schools.
Our schools each have their own vision and values. Many schools had these before they joined the Rise family. These all complement the work of Rise to enable pupils and staff to ‘flourish and succeed’.
We are proud that all our schools are now deemed to be ‘Good’ in the eyes of Ofsted. However, we want that milestone to be a marker on our journey, rather than the destination itself. We want Rise schools to be great schools.
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.Find out more about the Rise Multi-Academy Trust here.
