Welcome to Malden Manor Primary School

Welcome to Malden Manor, where our aim is to provide an educational experience of the highest quality for all the children in our care. By creating an inclusive and stimulating learning environment, we seek to capture pupils’ interest, extend their knowledge and raise their aspirations. Our teaching and learning is designed to bring learning to life, both in the classroom and through a variety of inspiring experiences in the wider community. In line with our objective of being the best we can be, we encourage children to take an active role in their education, developing the skills they need for independent learning. Parental involvement is vital for children to achieve their best so it is encouraged at every stage of learning.

Malden Manor is a vibrant and welcoming community in which we strive for the highest standards of attainment – whether academic, artistic or sporting. We find and nurture hidden talents, celebrating the strengths of every child.

Our expectations in terms of both learning and behaviour are high and the children respond with delightful enthusiasm, politeness and consideration for others. Our broad curriculum and rich programme of extra-curricular activities – including the popular breakfast and after-school clubs – provide a well-rounded education, supported by excellent pastoral care. Together with my team of dedicated staff and governors, I invite you to visit the school to see for yourself the fantastic opportunities it offers your child.

PE & Sports Grants

PE and Sports Grants 2017 - 2018

 Review of 2016 - 2017

We hire external qualified sport coaches to offer Hockey curriculum coaching – the children have enjoyed the hockey coaching through the year and as a result there has been an increase in numbers in the After School Club (ASC). Teachers have benefitted from the skills taught and joined in with the coaching as part of their own professional development. Teachers are now equipped to apply these skills and games to other areas of the PE curriculum more effectively. 41 children have regularly attended the after school club last year with children attending from each year group. Another benefit from this is that more of our children are looking for pathways to extra sport and 6 children have joined Surbiton Hockey Club. One of these children has been invited to attend county training for Surrey.

We hire qualified sport coaches to offer Gymnastics curriculum coaching – Geoff Rellis (Good Life Gymnastics) has provided children (Reception to Year 6) with gymnastics lessons. These lessons focused on developing key skills and the teachers benefitted as they joined in with the coaching as part of their own professional development. We have continued with this into the new academic year and also provided the children with a lunch time club as it has had such a positive response. Teachers have become more confident and they are replicating the skills and ideas.  68 children have regularly attended the lunch club last year with children from each year group attending This has also identified pathways for our children as many of  them are with local gym clubs such as, Tolworth, Avondale and Genesis.

This academic year we have continued to buy into the Kingston School Sports Partnership (KSSP). This has enabled us to participate in 14 different sports and over 30 events, there is also a range of sports for different ages, gender and abilities. In total 300 children from Malden Manor participated in these events, although many children will have competed more than once.  For example one Year 6 girl and one Year 6 boy represented the school in 8 different sports.

In addition to this we have again bought into the Richard Challoner Sports Partnership (RCSP). They too provide us with competitions, but also use of their excellent facilities including their 14 table tennis tables, long jump pit and sports hall. They also use their young leaders to run competitions including Year 1 and 2 events and inter house competitions.

Both the KSSP and the RCSP provide pathways to the sports that we offer for both competitions and clubs. Many of our children take part in clubs outside school and Malden Manor School has provided some of those links.

This year has also seen the introduction of a cluster partnership event. A group of Year 4s and Year 2s took part in a swimming gala at the Malden Centre, this was organised by a team of teachers from the cluster. This is now an annual event. We are hoping that there are additional cluster sport events to follow.

Children participating in after school clubs has risen to 71% for Years 1-6 for the academic year 2016/17 compared with 68% in the academic year 2015/16.

Sport competition participation in Years 1 – 6 has risen to 69% of the children for the academic year 2016/17 compared with 61% in the academic year 2015/16.


What is the PE and Sports Grant?

The Education Funding Agency is providing additional funding to each school for this academic year 2017 - 2018 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – is allocated to primary school headteachers. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.


Malden Manor PE and Sports Grant

PE Curriculum
Malden Manor children receive a broad and balanced programme of physical education, in which all children have an equal opportunity to participate successfully in a wide range of physical activities at their own level. This promotes a sense of well-being and awareness of the benefits of exercise that will stay with the children throughout their adult life.
In lessons we encourage the children to develop an understanding of how the body functions including how to warm up appropriately and key aspects of hygiene. For reasons of hygiene and safety we insist on appropriate clothing and footwear, furthermore we insist that no jewellery should be worn for any PE activity.
At Malden Manor we focus on six areas of study: dance, games, gymnastics, swimming, outdoor as well as adventure and athletic activities. Within these areas of study we provide opportunities for the children to experience a wide range of sports, for example: tennis, cricket, hockey and handball.
Regular weekly games sessions are enriched where appropriate, with visits from professional coaches and other sport specialists. These lessons aim to promote co-operation with others and the appreciation of the importance of fair play whether they achieve success or not. Teachers at the school hold PE and coaching qualifications.
Intra Sport – Level 1
We have an intra school sport competition set up at Malden Manor where the children have the opportunity to compete against each other both in the curriculum and on other occasions. We are currently working with the Youth Sport Trust to promote Level 1 Intra Sport within our school. All children from Reception to Year 6 are allocated a house team and siblings are included in the same house. Our houses are named after local places/history linked to our community. They are: Saxon Kings (Yellow); London (Red); Thames (Blue) and Kingston (Green). Each house has their own house captains, these are children who apply for the job and are then selected. This year’s house captains are: Otto, Judy, Lewis, Jae Hee, Taim, Tilly, Archie and Lily.
At Malden Manor we encourage our children to take part in leadership within PE. Within PE lessons children are encouraged to lead. For example, recording scores in a small sided game or measuring distances of a throw in athletics. Additionally, in Year 5 children take part in a scheme of work called ‘The Young Leader Award’. This helps our children to develop leadership skills such as organisation, communication and teamwork, as well as helping to develop confidence and self-esteem.
During the course of the year, children in Year 4 go to Cheam Swimming Pools to have weekly swimming lesson with qualified instructors.
Sports Day
We hold a sports day for the whole school, which includes cultural and sporting events and we encourage parents to join us in the support of their children having fun.

PE comments

Staff view

‘Physical development really is one of the key starting points for a child’s learning. Throughout the Early Years at Malden Manor, our children are provided with a huge range of exciting, challenging and stimulating physical activities on a daily basis. These range from developing fine motor skills with engaging activities such as malleable play, threading and pencil skills, right through to exploring our generous outdoor space on a free flow basis, allowing our children to run, climb and experiment with different ways of moving.’ Mrs. Veal, EYFS Leader.
‘I am impressed by the outside space that the children have for their PE lessons. The school also has a sports hall and is well resourced. Malden Manor participates in a range of Borough competitions and has even represented Kingston at a higher level. I enjoy teaching PE as there is a range of areas to teach the children such as Handball and Badminton. The school recognises the importance of PE and sport alongside other areas of the curriculum, as an equally valuable part of children's development and well-being.' –Mr Gibbons KS2 Teacher
