Welcome to New Monument Primary Academy
The staff, governors and I would like to welcome you to New Monument Primary Academy. We are a collaborative Multi Academy Trust consisting of New Monument Primary and Nursery, and Broadmere Primary and Nursery.
Our children learn in a caring, safe, nurturing environment that reflects the multicultural society in which our school is set. We value all children as individuals and we encourage them to develop into independent, resourceful and caring citizens. We value and encourage parental involvement as we consider that a close partnership between home and school is essential for children to gain maximum benefit from their time with us. For this reason we employ a Home School Link worker to ensure our families are supported and we operate an ‘open door’ policy.
Our curriculum is tailored to meet the needs of every learner in our school. It is creative, investigative and relevant as it is our mission to inspire our learners. Our teachers love teaching and strive to provide real life experiences to enhance their pupils' learning. During the year classes enjoy several educational visits along with on site workshops or visitors chosen to engage our learners with the topics they are exploring. The children’s learning environments are vibrant and encompass indoor and outdoor learning experiences.
Our children benefit from the large school field and playground. Sports coaches and teaching staff provide lunchtime and after school clubs which are very popular. We have recently opened an Early Birds Club for those families who require an earlier start time. The library is now open 2 afternoons a week for families to access as Reading is a whole school focus. We hope to build upon our resources in the library and would welcome suggestions from our school community.
This year we have developed a whole school ICT and Computing vision and refreshed our approach to teaching the Computing Curriculum with a significant investment in IT equipment. From January 2016, a set of 8 Learn Pads will be available in every classroom.
As a learning community we are committed to ensuring that all staff members participate in a cycle of appropriate, continuous training, relevant to the needs of our school.
We are currently in consultation with local stakeholders with a view to opening our nursery to 2 year old children (FEET funded initially). We will provide 1 adult per 4 children and the setting has been greatly refurbished to meet the needs of all of our youngest learners. Please contact the office for further information (see the FEET tab at the top of this page).
I hope you enjoy reading about our school – it will give you a flavour of the opportunities we provide for our children, however, please come in to see us in action as we welcome visitors to Broadmere.
