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.

Zones of Regulation

The Zones of Regulation is a programme that helps children gain skills in regulating their actions, which in turn leads to increased control, resilience and problem solving abilities. Each activity is designed to help children recognise when they are in different states called “zones,” with each of four zones represented by a different colour.

Children begin to learn how to use strategies or tools to stay in a zone or move from one to another. They explore calming techniques, cognitive strategies, and sensory supports so they will have a toolbox of methods to use to move between zones and therefore understand how to self-regulate.

Learning about emotions, how to read facial expressions and body language, understanding personal triggers and how we can manage them in an appropriate and effective way are all vital skills for all children to develop.

Each child from years 1-6 took part in a series of 18 lessons all based around the zones of regulation. Please look at the powerpoint to learn more and use the resources so that you can use this programme with your child at home and throughout their lives.
