Building work in progress.
School is now ready for the builders to start.
I am delighted with our recent Ofsted report, which recognises that we continue to be a Good school. It truly reflects the hard work, dedication and commitment from both staff and pupils, that is apparent when you walk into our fantastic school.
Myself, the staff, Governors, parents and carers are all determined to ensure that the children have the opportunity to learn in an environment which will be memorable for them in years to come. I was particularly delighted that the Inspector recognised that Monkwray is,
“…a welcoming, warm and bright school. Pupils enjoy coming to school and are enthusiastic about their learning.”
Staff work their magic producing fabulous lessons and the Inspection report reflected this,
“Pupils are proud of their work and are keen to tell others what they have been learning.”
At Monkwray we are aware of how important it is to appreciate that we are all part of a wider community, and myself and staff remind the children about how saying something as simple as please and thank you, taking care of others and being proud of our school is all part of growing up. This has always been a strength of Monkwray because I believe Monkwray Junior School is part of a good local community who work hard to make everyone feel good about themselves. The report stated,
“Pupils are well mannered and polite. “
I feel extremely proud to be part of a good school and have the privilege of working with excellent staff and such incredible children.
As the report states,
“Staff never give up on a child at Monkwray Junior School.”

“ Very good relationships help to create a happy atmosphere throughout the school. Pupils’ behaviour is outstanding. Pupils enjoy school and feel safe.”
