School Description

Kings Monkton School is an inclusive community with a powerful focus on equality and acceptance. Pupils have a wide range of abilities. A minority of the pupils have an additional learning need and a very few pupils’ needs are complex. Nearly all pupils are proud to belong to Kings Monkton School. They feel that individualism is celebrated as they are encouraged to ‘grow into themselves.’ Together, pupils and staff create a respectful, purposeful and highly inclusive community, which values happiness and prioritises everyone’s well-being. Nearly all pupils feel happy and safe at school, embody tolerance and equality and treat each other with kindness and respect. Staff support new pupils to settle in quickly and they swiftly build strong relationships and establish high levels of trust from pupils. Staff at Kings Monkton School provide skilful support for all pupils as a result of their strong understanding of individuals’ needs and abilities. Throughout the school there is careful and individual consideration of the curriculum on offer. Well-structured planning ensures that pupils build on existing knowledge, understanding and skills to make strong progress as they move through the school. Most pupils feel that the school organises learning in a way that gives them confidence; both the structure of the timetable and their ability to tackle work at their own level within class. Where appropriate, pupils follow bespoke pathways or benefit from effective additional support. Leaders carefully plan these interventions to meet the specific needs of individual pupils and, as a result, they improve their well-being, engagement and learning effectively during their time at the school. Staff and resources are used creatively and many teachers across the school apply themselves expertly in relation to the ability or needs of pupils. Classrooms and other spaces are calm, purposeful learning environments that enable pupils throughout the school to engage with their learning. When most effective, lessons provide stretch and challenge for all pupils. Leaders have established a clear school vision, which is understood and applied well by all members of the school community. The operational management of the school is strong and the well-being of the school community is leaders’ highest priority. Leaders have identified and addressed successfully relevant areas for improvement across the school. However, quality assurance activities do not always focus closely enough on the impact of teaching on learning and do not always identify where observed practice is not in line with policy. The school meets all of the Independent School Standards (Wales) Regulations 2003.
