Welcome to Kestrel Mead Primary Academy

Welcome to our school website. Kestrel Mead is situated in the growing area of Hamilton on the outskirts of Leicester City. We are a vibrant, caring and aspirational primary school catering for children between the ages of three and eleven. We are proud to be a school across 2 school sites, with one school ethos.

The infant school site caters for children from Nursery to Year 2. On the infant site we also have an 10 place special needs unit called ‘The Nest’. This is a designated specialist provision for pupils with Autism and co-occurring needs. Our Junior school site serves our Year 3-6 children.

We welcome enquiries to the school; for prospective pupils, interested parents and professionals who would like to see our pedagogy and curriculum offer in practice. We have structured open mornings and can arrange visits for professionals with prior warning.

Although most of our parent communication and sharing of good work is now done through a closed platform (Class Dojo) we are still active on Twitter, so be sure to follow on @KestrelMead to see photos and updates of events that take place within the school.

If you would like to see a little virtual flavour of our school, take a look at our speedy school tour. It was taken during COVID times and despite the barriers, you can still feel the love of learning across the school. I love this video as it captures the children’s curiosity, team work and deep desire to learn in all classes.

We are proud to provide an exceptional educational and pastoral offer for the children of Kestrel Mead and this is validated through Challenge Partners reports and 3 national areas of excellence. Our most recent Challenge Partners report can be found below.
