Head Teacher's Message
Montem is a vibrant inner-city school. We aim to nurture and inspire our learners to become motivated and successful citizens who are equipped to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow. We do this by creating a positive, stimulating environment that promotes the development of children’s academic, social, moral, spiritual and physical learning.
Montem School is a two form entry Primary School catering for children from 2 to 11. There are 14 classes with 30 children per class and a 52 place Nursery. The classes are organised into age groups with two classes in each year group from Reception through to Year 6.
Our most recent Ofsted report in June 2017 described the school as ‘an orderly community where pupils behave well and look after each other’. Ofsted found that ‘teachers build pupils’ confidence through praise and encouragement and this ensures a good atmosphere for learning, with pupils feeling positive and keen to do well.’
Our school motto is ‘Together We Learn’ because learning is at the heart of everything we do. We provide a rich and varied curriculum that enables everyone to succeed. We have high expectations of our children and provide lots of support to help them achieve. We believe everyone should enjoy school and we plan lots of exciting activities to make learning fun. Our school values – Cooperation, Honesty, Peace, Love and Respect – are very important to us. Children learn about these values and are expected to support them. We expect children to treat one and other in a friendly and fair manner. If bullying occurs we will deal with it as quickly as possible and with the cooperation of parents.
We aim to provide an environment where children feel safe, secure and happy. Children learn best when school and parents work together. We work in partnership with parents and carers to support children and are always happy to meet with parents and carers to discuss children’s progress. It is the responsibility of the whole school community to ensure that every child feels cared for and safe in our school. We take seriously our responsibility to protect and keep children in our care safe.
