It is my privilege to welcome you to the Malcolm Sargent Primary School.
Our school aims to provide the best all round education for children. Collectively, our approach is called
“The Malcolm Sargent Way” and is centred on our three core values:
Engage & Inspire: Our pupils are inspired and motivated by the learning opportunities which have been created for them.
Nurture & Growth: Everyone seeks to improve, develop and share; not because we are not good enough, but because we can all be even better!
Pride & Joy: We take pride in our achievements and this is evident in what we do and how we do it.
My excellent staff team has very high expectations of our pupils and we are very proud of their achievements, which prepare them exceptionally well for the future. Academically, our outcomes are consistently ranked in the top 20% of high performing schools nationally. We are, however, equally proud of our emphasis on our pupils’ outstanding personal development including their behaviour, manners and attitudes.
My staff team strives to provide an exciting and engaging curriculum, rich in opportunities for children, to further their interests and expertise. Of particular note is our emphasis on music, sport, and art. Unusually, for a primary school, we are proud to be able to employ specialist staff in these areas, similar to a secondary school, and the standards we achieve in these more vocational subjects, together with the core curriculum subjects, is exceptional.
Most of all, however, we recognise that all of our children are unique; each possessing different skills and abilities. Our values help us to nurture each individual child to be happy, to achieve, and to have fun during their seven years with us. It is an honour for me to be able to serve as Principal at our school, helping each of our pupils to achieve their full potential and to grow up as happy and balanced individuals.
I hope that you find the information in our prospectus and on our website useful, but please feel free to contact us should you have any queries. I would be delighted to guide you round our school and to help you with any questions you may have.
Mr T J Revell, Principal (BSc, NPQH, Local Leader of Education)
Congratulations to Archie whose artwork is part of a giant installation in Piccadilly Circus this Saturday called "The People's Moon" celebrating 50 years since the moon landings. Well done Archie! #prideandjoy
This week we were visited by Mark from SMART technology! He brought lots of exciting coding equipment with him and worked with a small group of children to design and code moving gadgets. The children then presented these to the whole school in assemblies on Tuesday – we were all fascinated by everything they had learned and made! #engageandinspire #prideandjoy #nurtureandgrow
Following the success of the 'Thank You' week last November, we would like to adopt the #thanks! postcard system which was used, as part of our ongoing practice and ethos as a happy, healthy school. For those members of our school community who will be leaving us at the end of the year, we hope you will use a postcard to say a final thank you to someone who has made a difference to you during your time at Malcolm Sargent School. Postcards are available at the office and we have also launched a #thanks! icon on the school website, making it even easier to drop a line to anyone in our school community throughout the year. #prideandjoy #nurtureandgrow #engageandinspire
The national 'Don't Step on a Bee Day' coincided with a very interesting talk from Mr Revell to The Green Team on keeping bees. The children learnt about the different types of bees, how to identify the queen bee, why the bees build hexagonal combs, what pollen and nectar is used for and why bees swarm. They had an opportunity to handle some honeycomb and try on a bee keeper's suit. Mr Revell very kindly donated a jar of honey from his own bee hives for the children to try. #prideandjoy #engageandinspire #nurtureandgrow
