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)
This week, our Y3-6 female footballers had a fantastic time representing the school at the Peterborough United Foundation's Girls' Football Tournament. This is the first time we have entered but we played superbly and were delighted that Y3/4 team reached the semi-finals and the Y5/6 team reached the quarter finals. All the girls represented the school brilliantly and we are very proud of them! Well done girls; you have inspired many to continue and we know you too have been inspired by the event. #prideandjoy #engageandinspire #nurtureandgrow
As an after-SATs treat, Miss Dakin brought in her dogs, Enya and Brae, to meet the children in her class. Her sister Lucy, who is a police officer, brought them in and answered the children's questions about the police force in Peterborough as well. The children thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon and were very interested in the police's work.#prideandjoy #engageandinspire #nurtureandgrow
At the weekend, children who play football for Stamford AFC received a trophy for excellent playing across the entire season. Some of the children in Y3G brought in their trophies to show their achievements and told us that the team had 13 wins out of 25 games and scored 128 goals over the season! What a fantastic achievement! Well done to all the children who play for the team. #prideandjoy #nurtureandgrow #engageandinspire
Freya, Class 7, recently won a competition organised by POSH for all local schools. In class, she had to write a book review, suggesting books which the team's mascot, Peter Burrows, might want to read. As well as a bag full of new books, Freya and her family were treated to tickets for a match where they saw Peterborough United win! #prideandjoy
