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)
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
Our Y2 children had a fantastic day at Burghley this week. They walked through the Sculpture Gardens and spotted Colin Furze's sculpture. They also took part in a Sculpture Workshop using clay and thoroughly enjoyed the Garden of Surprises! Thanks to Stamford Young People's Charity for funding this trip. #prideandjoy
Thanks to a very generous donation from The Stamford Round Table, the Green Team has been able to buy new trowels, forks and secateurs and will be able to buy further supplies for use next year. Thank you! #prideandjoy
Our Year 5 children enjoyed a super sunny trip to Tallington Lakes yesterday using their Fiver Challenge money. The children took part in kayaking, paddle-boarding, raft-building, tobogganing and rock climbing! #engageandinspire #prideandjoy #nurtureandgrow
