Kirkby Malzeard is a forward looking school which provides an excellent education for around 90 pupils aged between 4 and 11 years of age in four classes. Most of the children come from Kirkby Malzeard, Laverton and Dallowgill, but a number come from outside of the catchment area.
Our school ethos is:
Respect for others
Excellence and enjoyment
This is incorporated in our mission, "to create a stimulating learning environment in which the full potential of all pupils is realised. This is achieved through the high quality teaching from a well qualified and motivated professional staff in sympathy with the teachings of the Church of England."
We offer a rich, broad and balanced curriculum which is enhanced by many extra curricular activities. We are extremely proud of our new library, which was officially opened by children's author, Wes Magee, in February 2004. The library provides a valuable resource which can be enjoyed by all and it augments the learning of our children.
A further project has now been completed - the development of the ICT suite in the old school has been officially opened.
After our very successful "Multi-Cultural Week" in the Autumn, we are already planning our "Science & Technology Week" for early March 2008.
We work closely with the independent pre-school which shares the school site - which enables the children to become familiar with our school and the staff.
We are fortunate to have strong links with a thriving and supportive community. Please feel welcome to call in and visit us.
