Welcome to the website for Broom Leys Primary School.
We are a large Primary School in Coalville, Leicestershire, catering for children aged 4-11. Through our website we hope to give you a flavour of what we offer but if you are a new parent or a parent who is considering applying for a place here for your child, please do come to have a look around. Simply phone the school office (01530 832234) to make an appointment.
We are proud of our pupils' academic achievements, which were recognised in our most recent OfSTED report, but we are just as proud of their achievements in sport, music and the arts.
All schools are different but what makes Broom Leys special is its site, the facilities we can offer and the broad range of expertise of a large staff.
The school is set on a plot of nearly 9 acres. Within the grounds we have mature trees, garden areas and a pond. The playing field has a 400m running track and space for three football pitches; we also have a flood-lit ball court which can be used all year round. The main school building is a Victorian mansion; many of the original features of the house remain.
In November 2012, Broom Leys Primary School became an Academy. This makes little difference in the day to day running of the school. The biggest change we noticed was the way in which school is funded. Our children still take the same national tests as children in other schools and our curriculum reflects the National Curriculum.
