I am very proud to welcome you to Monksmoor Park CE Primary School.
We are a growing school, having opened our doors for the first time in September 2018 to 11 Reception children and now work with 140 children across Nursery to Year 3. Academic achievement is important and we have high expectations for our children, however, we also know that children are only ready to learn when they feel safe and loved.
CurriculumOur curriculum will provide each and every child the opportunity to flourish. Children will feel safe and happy at school and will be in the best possible position to learn and grow. They will acquire wisdom, knowledge and skills and be able to use them to explore the world around them and develop a sense of curiosity. We understand how outdoor learning helps us to be healthy, both physically and mentally and enjoy a spiritual connection with nature. Children at Monksmoor Park will embody our school values and leave school ready to embrace the challenges ahead of them.
Clubs and ActivitiesWe are proud to offer a range of after school clubs and lunch time activities to enhance the opportunities available at our school.
The School DayStart of the school day: All children should come to the playground in the morning. The playground can be accessed either by the main reception gate or the gate at the side of the car park. Gates open at 8:30 a.m. and there will an adult on duty to supervise.
Forest School allows children to develop physically, socially and emotionally by supporting play, exploration and risk taking.
At Monksmoor Park we believe it is a valuable opportunity for our children as it develops their confidence, self-esteem, perseverance, creativity and imagination. They learn about our natural world while having fun, exploring and working together.
We know that God wants us to flourish as human beings and to be the best that we can be. In response, we value and nurture all that leads to the creation of a sense of wellbeing in our lives as individuals and a community.
I have come in order that you might have life—life in all its fullness

Show proper respect to everyone
1 Peter 2:17
We understand that joy comes from knowing God through Jesus Christ in the power of the Spirit. In response, we celebrate everything that is good about our school and wider community, and seek to be a source of joy to others.
The Lord has done great things for us and we are filled with joy
We know that Christian hope is rooted in the love and faithfulness of God, who is a ‘strong rock’ and one whose promises can be trusted. In response, we see learning as an open-ended and hopeful activity involving the mind, body and soul for pupils and staff.
Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength
We recognise that Jesus came in to the world so that everyone could experience the 'forever friendship' that God offers. In response, we always treat others, as we would like to be treated ourselves.
I speak to you as my friends
We appreciate that each one of us is a unique human being created by God. In response, we are always accepting of others and ourselves, and seek to celebrate our diversity.
Let us make every effort to do what leads to peace and to the strengthening of one another
