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)
Bonjour to all the children in Year 4 who enjoyed a fabulous French day on the last Thursday of term. This included practising greetings, counting to 20 and beyond, learning colours, actions and parts of the body (singing Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes) in French as well as learning a bit about the French Revolution! Bonne Vacances! #engageandinspire #prideandjoy #nurtureandgrow
Our onsite nursery, Acorn Childcare Centre, still has vacancies for EYPs. Please apply/share! Thank you.
Y5 have been involved with the Fly to the Line Glider Challenge over the last few months, and after a successful regional final earlier this month, the winning team from Mrs Stenson's class went to RAF Cosford to the National Finals on Tuesday. The boys designed and built another glider with the support of the team at Cosford and the RAF STEM ambassadors. They thoroughly enjoyed being part of the event. #engageandinspire #prideandjoy #nutureandgrow.
12 of our Y5 children performed their favourite poem at Oundle Music and Drama Festival recently. They had to think really carefully about projecting their voices and portraying the mood and style of the verse through their expression. A special mention to Mackenzie and Liam who came 3rd jointly . #prideandjoy #enageandinspire #nurtureandgrow
