An Outstanding Church School
Welcome to Bishop Monkton Church of England School
Welcome to Bishop Monkton CE Primary School. We are very proud of our school and delighted to be sharing it with you. Our aim is to provide all children with an enjoyable learning experience in which they thrive.
Education is a journey, not a race and we are in the privileged position to be able to shape that journey with your children. Along the way we have plenty of fun, with a varied and interesting curriculum that will bring out the best in your child. But don’t take my word for it!
Come and visit and see for yourselves what our children are achieving. Please feel free to contact the school to make an appointment and I would be delighted to show you around.
Thank you for visiting!

Celebrating World Book Day.
The whole school celebrated the many talents of Roald Dahl during World Book Day. Children worked in mixed "family" groups and took part in a variety of activities including mixing potions, making scrumptious fudge, taking part in the chocolate river challenge, designing dream-catchers and illustrating Roald Dahl stories.
Can you recognise these Roald Dahl characters ?
Which stories are they from?
As well as having fun the children engaged in some brilliant hands-on learning.
On Friday 11th November 2016 the school held a Remembrance Day Service to which all parents and carers were warmly invited. One parent wrote.
NSPCC come to visit
All the children got an opportunity to meet “Buddy”, the NSPCC’s mascot which helps them to remember to speak out and stay safe. With a sack full of worries the children helped Buddy shed these concerns by reminding him to tell trusted adults, or contact Childline for free help and advice.
The children will be helping to raise money for the excellent work of the NSPCC and Childline, by having a sponsored spell. Do support them!
School Council News…
Our newly appointed School Councillors had their first council meeting last week, with one important mission; to rename the houses. After nominations were put to all of the pupils, these are the house names that were chosen under the heading of Mythical Creatures.
We look forward to seeing their progress on the Golden Time Board.
