Monkston Primary school first opened in 2001. It is a very special community, in which pupils and staff feel challenged to contribute at the highest level and feel valued for their efforts. At Monkston, we are determined to provide the very best pastoral care and the very best learning opportunities for all pupils as they progress through our school; working in strong partnership with parents and carers. 

At Monkston, we believe in a 'heart and soul' approach to teaching and caring for children. We really do want to make a positive, tangible impact on society through helping our children develop into enthusiastic, honest, compassionate and responsible UK & global citizens. In short, we want to change the world!

During our Ofsted inspection of May 2011, inspectors judged us to be a "good school with outstanding features." They spoke of outstanding behaviour and outstanding pastoral care leading to very happy children and a very positive climate for learning.

"Pupils thoroughly enjoy all aspects of school, say they feel safe and are keen to talk about the exciting activities" - Ofsted 2011

Whilst we were delighted by the comments of the inspection team, we remain sharply focussed on climbing all the way to the 'top of the mountain', so that all aspects of provision can be deemed outstanding ... and, once we reach the top of the mountain, we need to stay there!
