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 half term, our Y1 children have been working with Mrs Brown, making their Fiver Challenge artwork. They re-created Monet's Water Lily Pond using oil pastels and ink, made clay waterlilies and even tried building the Japanese bridge out of art straws! #engageandinspire
Our Y6 classes enjoyed a science lesson this week, looking at sheep's eyes, linked to our topic of 'Light'. We have been researching how light travels and how we see things. The children really enjoyed dissecting and identifying the different parts of the eyes! #engageandinspire
This week, our Y4 children spent some time in a DT session as part of our geography topic on natural landscapes, based on our book 'Mud, Blood and Sweat' by Bear Grylls. We all designed and made our very own 3D models of a river. Everyone worked really hard on their projects and produced some amazing results! #engageandinspire
Y5 children have enjoyed being part of the 'Fly to the Line Project' organised through RAF Cosford. The children made gliders out of foamboard and flew them in class trials. The top team from each class enjoyed a day at RAF Cranwell on Tuesday at the Regional Finals where they all built and flew a new glider. The team from Mrs Stenson's class built a winning glider and are heading to the National Finals at RAF Cosford in April! Well done! #engageandinspire #prideandjoy #nurtureandgrow
