Welcome to the online gateway to Mount Pleasant Primary School. We are extremely proud of our school and you will see exactly why this is, as you journey through our website.
We have recently moved into a brand-new school building which cost nearly £10 million. It consists of amazing indoor and outdoor facilities and the latest educational technologies and resources. Whilst we are in a brand-new facility now, we were in fact established in 1872, and have been serving the local community’s educational needs for many generations. Each year, we focus our resources to within the classroom so that children receive the maximum benefit (for details on school spending, please click here to access the benchmarking report card).
Our Vision to "nurture and empower lifelong learners to think big, aim high and be successful in achieving their dreams and aspirations" highlights the school’s highest expectations for all children and a belief that there are no limits to what can be achieved. The school has a strong commitment to working closely with parents, carers and the local community to raise aspirations for all through providing high-quality education. Our goal is to ensure that every child has the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in life and become lifelong learners. Our core values are based around a list of key qualities which we aim for our children to develop. These are Aspirational, Connected, Happy, Immersed, Energised, Valued and Empowered. Through these values we develop happy and resilient children who are eager to embrace the challenges and joys of life and are taught that anything is possible with the right mindset and belief.
I am pleased to be able to confirm that we have been succesful in achievening the School's Vision and this is proven by our chidren's amazing SATs outcomes. The 2021-22 Results table on the Pupil Outcomes page compares Mount Pleasant figures with National outcomes (based on current available data). In Reading, Maths and GPS pupils at the school achieved higher than the national average for both the expected and higher standard. In Writing expected, pupils at the school scored higher than average. Most importantly, the combined measure which looks at how many pupils achieved the expected standard and higher standard for Reading, Writing and Maths, Mount Pleasant pupils achieved higher than the national averages. Given our children's very low starting points, this is a truly outstanding achievement!
In adition to learning outcomes, the well-being and safety of children are paramount at Mount Pleasant. This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of all children, and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
Our inclusive curriculum engages our learners through memorable, first-hand experiences which immediately motivate children with new learning. This helps to further develop their understanding and knowledge of the world. Our curriculum is underpinned by the development of social, moral, spiritual, cultural and fundamental British values so that our pupils become confident, caring and respectful citizens. A rich program of extra-curricular activities provides further opportunities to increase self-confidence and enjoyment.
