Ofsted 2013

"Pupils’ achievement throughout the school is good and pupils are well prepared for the next stage of their schooling. Children make good progress in the Reception class, where they benefit from a wide mix of exciting work. Pupils continue to make good progress as they move up the school. They reach above-average standards when they leave school in Year 5. Good teaching helps pupils to build on their skills year by year.

International Schools Award

At Fernvale Primary School we are very proud to be going for our third consecutive International Schools Award. This award is given to schools that include an international dimension into their curriculum and have strong links set up with schools abroad.

We have been re accredited with International School Status because of the links we have forged with other European schools and the work we have done to celebrate our international school communities.

We are part of the Comenius Project and have strong links with partner schools in France, Italy and Germany with reciprocal visits having been made by pupils in previous years.

We develop children's cultural knowledge and understanding and celebrate our international element through many events and activities

Young Voices 2015

On Tuesday 13th January 2015, 21 children from year 4 and year 5 travelled to Birmingham to attend the Young Voices Concert in the LG Arena. The children worked very hard for a number of weeks after school to learn the large number of songs.

The children became part of a 6000 strong children's choir and sang the songs extremely well and were a credit to the school.

Young Voices is a brilliant organisation, and if you want to find out more about the event or see some of the great work they do please visit their website at http://www.youngvoices.co.uk/

Living and Working in Leicestershire

In the Heart of England - Residents of Leicestershire enjoy the best of everything
From refreshing and beautiful countryside and personable market towns to vibrant city living, Leicestershire offers a distinctive and high quality of life that will suit all lifestyles
Leicestershire is a beautiful county at the heart of England, within the developing National Forest.  It is a county where you can discover completely unspoilt villages and market towns, open countryside and panoramic views with rocky summits and secluded valleys.
Leicestershire has a wide variety of attractions including Bosworth Battlefield, where the course of English history changed dramatically, Snibston Discovery Park, which recalls our industrial past, and the National Space Centre.
Loughborough, in the north of the County is at the forefront of Information Technology and Loughborough University is also the national headquarters for many sports in the UK.  A number of Olympic teams will be training at Loughborough University in preparation for the 2012 Games in London, including, among others, the British Swimming Team, the British Triathlon Team, the elite British Athletes and the English Women’s Football Team.
The jet engine was invented in Lutterworth, in the south of the County, while Hinckley in the west was where the hosiery and footwear industries evolved.  Ashby-de-la-Zouch, in the north-west, and Market Harborough, in the south-east, are two very attractive, historical market towns.  Melton Mowbray, in the north-east, is a rural market town famous for the pork pie and for Stilton cheese.
Cosmopolitan and cultured, historic but futuristic, Leicester in the centre of the County is nothing if not varied, with its strong cultural diversity, excellent entertainment, night-life and restaurants.  The newly re-developed centre of the City offers a wide range of shopping opportunities, from the largest permanent outdoor market in Europe to the extensive Highcross shopping centre.
Leicestershire is well served by many transportation networks.  Four motorways (M1, M69, M42 and M6) run through the County, and there are regular trains to London, Nottingham, Birmingham and the North.  For international travel East Midlands Airport is located in the north of the County, and Birmingham Airport is also easily accessible
