Bishop Ellis Catholic Primary School is a voluntary aided Catholic primary school located in Thurmaston, Leicestershire, England.[1] Approximately 315 pupils aged 5–11 attend the school under the direction of the Head teacher Gail Neill.[2]

It was granted the Healthy Schools award in February 2007, presented by the then Leicester City F.C. manager Rob Kelly.[3]

Academic standards

In the report of the Ofsted inspection on 5 June 2006 the school was rated Good, point two on a four point scale. Each topic was rated outstanding or good with, notably, none less than good. However, the highest possible award of Outstanding was given for the Personal development and well-being of the pupils.[2][4]

Radio project

A two year project started in April 2004 in which children made radio shows. Bishop Ellis worked with Dovelands Primary School, Fullhurst Community College and Takeover Radio.[5]

Madeleine McCann

Madeleine McCann would have attended this school from September 2007.[6] On 18 June that year, as part of the appeal for her safe return, the children lined up in the playground to spell out Find Madeleine, and the school raised £1,500 for the appeal.[7] The school said that a place had been reserved for Madeleine and lit a candle for her.[8]
