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.

Curriculum Guidelines

Literacy Phonic 

Literacy Phonic Intent

The English curriculum is broken down into components, with reading and writing being key elements which underpin all other areas of the curriculum and should provide children with a genuine love for reading.

It should enable children to acquire the necessary skills to know more, understand more and remember more.

Phonics sessions from KS1 to KS2 underpin the sounds, giving children increasing confidence and independence when segmenting words into syllables and blending.

Taught phonics should enable children to access a wider vocabulary that they are able to accurately read and write in order to achieve automaticity.
