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.

Home Learning

Home Learning supports the development of independent learning skills, and provides parents with an opportunity to take part in their children's education. An organised Home Learning programme helps children to gain skills and build resilience which will benefit them throughout their schooling and as an adult.

At Malden Manor we believe there needs to be a balance between the amount of Home Learning set and the time given for completion for children to benefit from regular Home Learning within a full and varied life out of school.

Usually Home Learning will be given out every Thursday to accommodate children attending Home Learning Club on a Thursday evening, and returned the following Tuesday. Home Learning is not given for the holidays, with the exception of Reception and Year 6 for specific revision tasks.

Suggested time allocations for Home Learning

We appreciate parents support ensuring the home learning is completed and handed in on time. If parents could:

• Show that you value Home Learning and that it can help to be successful in school work
• Encourage pride in presenting work neatly
• Know you do not need any specialist knowledge – your child has been taught the skills needed to complete the Home Learning
• Write a note on the Home Learning if your child has tried but has not finished in a reasonable time
• If you have any questions or problems contact the teacher through the school office
