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)
Our Y2 children enjoyed a talk this morning about Judaism. We were very lucky to have Yaniv visit us to talk about the festival of Hannukah and explain some Jewish traditions. The children enjoyed playing with the dreidels and learning how to write their names in Hebrew. #engageandinspire
Our Y4 children visited Peterborough Museum this week, and learned about evacuation during WW2. They practised marching as though they were in the Home Guards and looked at how to diffuse a bomb! There was also a presentation about Anglo-Saxons at the Museum. The children then explored Peterborough city centre, imagining what it would have been like in a bombing raid. Everyone loved the trip and learned so much about WW2 and the Anglo-Saxons! #engageandinspire
The school is a CLIC Sargent collection point for used stamps. Please bring any old stamps to the office and we will send them off with those collected in school by our Green Team after Christmas. Thank you. #prideandjoy #engageandinspire #nurtureandgrow
Ms Barton was delighted to win this cake at the Christmas Fayre on Saturday. She had fun sharing it with her Y4 class on Monday. They thought it looked fantastic and tasted delicious! Many thanks to Mrs Cooper-Smith of The Purple Pumpkin Cake Company for donating the cake, and the PTFA. #prideandjoy #engageandinspire #nurtureandgrow
