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.

Cooking and Nutrition Intent

At Malden Manor, we want to instill a love of cooking in our children, where, not only will they develop the vital cooking and nutrition skills to ensure their growing independence and lifelong good health, but they will also have the confidence to be creative and express themselves through their cooking skills.

Teaching children about cooking and nutrition can make a real difference to the quality of their lives, equipping them with the confidence to make healthy and affordable food choices and helping them develop a healthy enjoyment of food. Learning to cook from an early age can contribute to maintaining a healthy weight, good oral health and general health and wellbeing.

Our scheme of work is based on the Twinkl units, which we have modified to fit the needs of our children and to work alongside the rest of the curriculum. We provide the children with the opportunities to work with the school caterers, to grow some of their own food and cook with it, and to take part in activities with a local secondary school.

The Cooking and Nutrition curriculum at Malden Manor has been developed using both the National Curriculum and the scheme of work provided by Twinkl, with modifications to fit the needs of our children and to work alongside the rest of the curriculum, the resources and facilities available to us. The children have opportunities to work with the school caterers, to grow some of their own food and cook with it, and to take part in activities with a local secondary school.
