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.

MUSIC Intent

Music is an integral and well-resourced part of life at Malden Manor. Music lessons are fun and inspiring, engaging the children with songs, lyrics and movement. We want the children develop their own appreciation of music with the opportunities we provide as a school.

At Malden Manor we aim to enable our children to use the universal language of music (musical elements) within a high quality musical education that promotes the love of music and use of talent in a variety of contexts.

We believe that every child should have the opportunity to develop their musical potential and we aim to nurture and encourage musical development across the school.

Charanga provides many examples of music styles and genres from different times and
places. These are explored through the language of music via active listening, performing and composing activities, which enable understanding of the context and genre.

Through our music lessons children are actively involved in a wide range of musical
opportunities. Children develop their singing voices, using body percussion and whole body actions, and learning to handle and play classroom instruments effectively to create and express their own and others’ music. Through a range of whole class, group and individual activities, children have opportunities to explore sounds, listen actively, compose and perform.

Children at Malden Manor love to sing and create music, and in doing so gain musical skills that they can apply through further education and into adulthood. We love to sing and perform to a high standard at regular venues throughout the school year including Infant Nativities, Junior Carol Concerts, Christmas Carols in John Lewis and at St. John’s Church, Young Voices (Bi-Annually) and the KMAS Festival of Choirs.
