Welcome to Malden Manor Primary School

Welcome to Malden Manor, where our aim is to provide an educational experience of the highest quality for all the children in our care. By creating an inclusive and stimulating learning environment, we seek to capture pupils’ interest, extend their knowledge and raise their aspirations. Our teaching and learning is designed to bring subjects to life, both in the classroom and through a variety of inspiring experiences in the wider community. In line with our objective of ‘creating successful learners’, we encourage children to take an active role in their education, developing the skills they need for independent learning. We also believe that parental involvement is vital for children to achieve their best.

Malden Manor is a vibrant and welcoming community in which we strive for the highest standards of attainment – whether academic, artistic or sporting. We find and nurture hidden talents, celebrating the strengths of every child.

Our expectations in terms of both learning and behaviour are high and the children respond with delightful enthusiasm, politeness and consideration for others. Our broad curriculum and rich programme of extra-curricular activities – including the popular breakfast, after-school and holiday clubs – provide a well-rounded education, supported by excellent pastoral care. Together with my team of dedicated staff and governors, I invite you to visit the school to see for yourself the fantastic opportunities it offers your child.

PE & Sports Grants 2016/17

Review of 2015 - 2016

Hockey curriculum coaching – the children have enjoyed the hockey coaching and as a result there has been an increase in numbers in the After School Club (ASC). Teachers have benefited from the skills taught and joined in with the coaching as part of their own professional development. Teachers are now equipped to apply these skills and games to other areas of the PE curriculum. Another benefit is that more of our children are looking for pathways to extra sport and more children have joined Surbiton Hockey Club. Additionally, we were awarded 2nd place in the borough’s Quicksticks hockey tournament.

Gymnastics curriculum coaching – Geoff Rellis (Good Life Gymnastics) has provided children (Reception to Year 6) with gymnastics lessons. These lessons focused on developing key skills. The teachers benefited as they joined in with the coaching as part of their own professional development. We are continuing with this into the next academic year. We also provided the children with a lunch time club and will be continuing with this as it has had such a positive response.

At the beginning of the school year we invested in Outdoor and Adventurous Activities (OAA) where the school had 2 days INSET providing teachers and TAs with practical and fun activities making use of learning outside. We invested in the school site being mapped, so that the children can improve their mapping skills as well as fitness levels in orienteering. This had a very positive outcome as we came 2nd in the borough’s orienteering competition.

The high number of children participating in after school clubs has been maintained.68% of our children in Years 1-6 participated for the academic year 2015/16.

Sport competition participation in Years 1 – 6 has risen slightly to 61% of the children for the academic year 2015/16 compared with 60% in the academic year 2014/15.

What is the PE and Sports Grant?

The Education Funding Agency provided additional funding to each school for the academic year 2015 - 2016 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – is allocated to primary school Headteachers. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on PE and School Sport provision in schools.

Malden Manor PE and Sports Grant

Funding for schools is calculated by reference to the number of primary-aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11), as recorded in the annual school census each January. For this academic year Malden Manor will receive approximately £9 230.

Purpose of funding

Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

Possible uses for the funding might include:

  • hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers when teaching PE
  • supporting and engaging the least active children through new or additional Change4Life clubs
  • paying for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport
  • providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE and sport
  • running sport competitions, or increasing pupils’ participation in School Games
  • buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE and sport
  • providing some places for pupils on after school sports clubs and holiday clubs
  • pooling the additional funding with that of other local schools.

Use of the 2016/2017 PE and Sports Grant allocation for Malden Manor has been planned to offer the following:

  • Specialist coaches to work alongside teachers when teaching PE.

PE Curriculum

Malden Manor pupils receive a broad and balanced programme of physical education, in which all pupils have an equal opportunity to participate successfully in a wide range of physical activities at their own level. This promotes a sense of well-being and awareness of the benefits of exercise that will stay with the children throughout their adult life.

In lessons we encourage the children to develop an understanding of how the body functions including how to warm up appropriately and key aspects of hygiene. For reasons of hygiene and safety we insist on appropriate clothing and footwear, furthermore we insist that no jewellery should be worn for any PE activity.

At Malden Manor we focus on six areas of study: dance, games, gymnastics, swimming, outdoor and adventure and athletic activities. Within these areas of study we provide opportunities for the children to experience a wide range of sports, for example: tennis, cricket, hockey and handball.

Regular weekly games sessions are enhanced where appropriate, with visits from professional coaches and other sport specialists. These lessons aim to promote co-operation with others and the appreciation of the importance of fair play whether they achieve success or not. Teachers at the school hold PE and coaching qualifications.

Intra Sport – Level 1

We have an intra school sport competition set up at Malden Manor where the children have the opportunity to compete against each other both in the curriculum and on other occasions. We are currently working with the Youth Sport Trust to promote Level 1 Intra Sport within our school. All children from Reception to Year 6 are allocated a house team and siblings are placed in the same house. Our houses are named after local places and people. They are: Saxon Kings (Yellow); London (Red); Thames (Blue) and Kingston (Green). Each house has their own house captain, these are children who apply for the job and are then selected. Our 2016 house captains are: Zak, Trinity, Ciaran, Amalie, Raazia, Mohamad, Galina and Karish.


At Malden Manor we encourage our children to take part in leadership within PE. Within PE lessons children are encouraged to lead eg. Recording scores in a small sided game or measuring distances of a throw in athletics. Additionally, in Year 5 children take part in a scheme of work called ‘The Young Leader Award’. This helps our children to develop leadership skills such as organisation, communication and teamwork, as well as helping to develop confidence and self-esteem.


During the course of the year, children in Year 4 go to Cheam Swimming Pools to have swimming lesson with qualified instructors.

Sports Day

We hold a sports day for the whole school, which includes cultural and sporting events and we encourage parents to join us in the support of their children having fun.

PE comments

Staff view

‘From an Early Years perspective being physical is such a fundamental part of our everyday learning and I love the fact that Malden Manor is a school where being active and physically engaged is of great importance. Our children are offered the opportunity to develop and become physical beings with the love of outdoors.’ –Mrs Ashworth EYFS Leader

'When I visited Malden Manor for my interview, I was impressed by the outside space that the children have for their PE lessons. The school also has a sports hall and is well resourced. Malden Manor participates in a range of Borough competitions and has even represented Kingston at a higher level. I enjoy teaching PE as there is a range of areas to teach the children such as Handball and Badminton. The school recognises the importance of PE and sport alongside other areas of the curriculum, as an equally valuable part of children's development and well-being.' –Mr Gibbons KS2 Teacher
