School Description

Cardiff Montessori School was founded by the proprietor and current headteacher in 2016. The school implements the Montessori approach and curriculum faithfully. It empowers pupils to ‘be Montessori’ and embodies the values of kindness, honesty, respect and responsibility highly successfully. There is a determined focus on the promotion of well-being through these values, and consequently the school has the affection and loyalty of pupils, parents and staff. Nearly all learning experiences throughout the school are authentic. Throughout the school there is a clear and progressive focus on sensorial, physical and cognitive development. Pupils are taught independent living skills from an early age, and kindness, respect, grace and courtesy are actively taught to pupils of all ages. Pupils at the school are inquisitive, confident, responsible and highly independent. They feel happy and safe due to the nurturing and respectful relationships that exist between all members of the school. Pupils confidently resolve many of their own problems and excitedly take responsibility for their own learning. As a result, most pupils make strong progress from their starting points. Leaders are knowledgeable, compassionate and caring and their management of the school is highly effective. There is a strong sense of staff unity and everyone at the school works together in pupils’ best interests. All staff actively contribute to the school’s improvement. However, these arrangements are not focused or structured sharply enough. The Montessori teaching approach is firmly embedded across the school. All staff know their pupils extremely well and respond to their well-being needs effectively. Teachers work as ‘guides’ to facilitate pupils’ learning, which is sequenced so that their knowledge and skills build as they move through the school. However, pupils do not always receive feedback on their work in a timely manner to help sustain improvements. Cardiff Montessori School meets all the Independent School Standards (Wales) Regulations 2003.
