Mr D. Nolan - Acting Headteacher
Welcome to Maidensbridge Primary School
We are a small friendly and caring school with committed and hardworking staff, very supportive parents and dedicated governors. Our last OFSTED inspection in June 2017 demonstrated that were a GOOD school and provide our children with opportunities to learn and fulfil their potential across the curriculum. Our results at the end of Key Stage 2 are consistently good and our children's attainment is consistently above the national average in both Maths and English.
As a school, we are committed to the concept of developing the 'whole-child'. We enable our children to access opportunities that will help them discover things about themselves, develop their characters and enable them to be good citizens. We have an exciting and engaging 'Knowledge Curriculum' which seeks to develop deep subject knowledge, as well as develop their vocabulary and their life experience. We believe that all children have their own individual talents, interests and characters and we endeavour to foster and nurture these through our curriculum, after-school clubs and the extended experiences we provide.
The school has extensive grounds and has a semi-rural location which provides our pupils with a spacious and natural environment in which to develop, learn and play. We also have a mature Forest School area which boasts an outdoor classroom, fire pit and cob oven. Our Reception and Year 1 classes are regular visitors during the autumn and summer terms.
Our HSA works tirelessly to support the school and raise important funds which are invested into the children's welfare and education. Our community bonfire in November brings together several hundred people from our community and this is repeated at our summer Glastonbridge Festival in June. The school also provides seasonal workshops for our Reception and Key Stage 1 parents, as well as a range of curriculum workshops and open days.
It has been my privilege to serve this wonderful school for the last ten years as Deputy Headteacher and more recently as Acting Headteacher. It is also my pleasure to work with our incredible pupils and lead a staff team of caring, committed and talented people who work tirelessly for them.
