Glebe Infant School

GPP Federation



It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Glebe and Picklenash  Schools.

The schools pride themselves on providing a nurturing and quality education for all of the children in its care.

The site comprises of two schools, Glebe Infants and Picklenash Juniors, and has established a welcoming and inclusive ethos with firmly embedded whole school values.

The values of Friendship, Courage, Perseverance, Trust, Respect, and Forgiveness are interwoven in to all aspects of school life and provide the foundations for creating the positive and supportive learning environment that allows all children to succeed.

Our School vision and motto, which was written in collaboration with our children, states that we:

Ensure that everyone reaches their full potential in a safe, supportive and encouraging learning environment.

Prepare, Progress, Prevail

All of our staff are dedicated to ensuring that children are 'Prepared' for their next steps both academically and socially; 'Progress' to meet their full potential and 'Prevail' against the challenges and barriers that they might face along the way.

With this in mind you can be assured that your child will have the support, care and challenge needed, in an enriching, engaging and exciting environment, to reach their full potential.

Split Site

We are a split site primary school comprising Glebe Infants (Reception - Year 2) and Picklenash Juniors (Years 3-6).  The Schools work closely together to provide a quality education under the leadership and management of a shared Governing Body and leadership team.

Caring and nuturing

Children within both Schools benefit from our outstanding pastoral and special needs team who work closely with staff and parents to provide focussed attention in meeting individual needs.  This is an area that we place great emphasis on.

A strong relationship with the community

Being the only primary provider within the town of Newent we are proud of our relationship with the local community and we work hard to ensure that strong links are made with local organisations.  Many of these links are able to provide our children with unique opportunities and experiences that adds breadth and balance to our curriculum.

Passion for learning

As staff we are passionate about developing a love for learning and working together to ensure everyone achieves to the very best of their ability.


Our curriculum is carefully structured to inspire children and provide opportunities for them to discover and learn in a fun and engaging way.

Life skills

As well as focussing on the key academic areas in school we recognise the need to develop the whole child and as such look to provide a range of opportunities that prepare children for the next steps in the educational journey and life in general.

Perspective Parents 

As a school we have chosen not to offer Open Days to prospective parents but to provide bespoke tours that will allow parents/carers to see the school in action on a normal day at a time that is convenient to you. This way you will receive a personalised guided tour, led by a member of the senior leadership team, where you can ask any questions relevant to your child and your family's needs. 

If interested, please contact the school office to arrange your visit.
