School Background: At Malmesbury Park Primary School, we believe every child deserves the very best education, opportunities to shine and the chance to achieve their hopes and dreams. We place learning at the heart of all we do, driving this through the development of our six learning values (Thinking, Independence, Collaboration, Creativity, Spirituality and Emotional Intelligence) within the school curriculum. Our curriculum is designed to meet the needs of our learners, providing them with rich, memorable and meaningful experiences.

 

We offer a stimulating, exciting, enriching curriculum designed to challenge, motivate and inspire children. Underpinned by the school ethos and learning values, our curriculum is broad, balanced and ensures continuity and progression in key skills, knowledge and understanding. Our curriculum, taught through an integrated approach, ensures learning becomes meaningful, relevant and purposeful and supported by the discrete teaching of maths, PE, MfL and Music ensures subject specific skills are delivered to a high standard. A wide range of opportunities and experiences are offered - visits out (including residential trips), having ‘experts in their field’ working in school alongside the children and engaging with the local community.  These opportunities enrich the curriculum and support understanding of how skills learnt in school are applied in the world of work whilst ensuring children develop both personal and academic skills and achieve success.
