Cambridge Partner School


Dear Parent,

We offer you a warm welcome to Melton Primary School and hope that your child‟s time with us will be both rewarding and enjoyable.

The aim of this prospectus is to give you some idea of what school life is like here at Melton.

The school is situated in the village of Melton, close to the market town of Woodbridge. It was built in 1965 and is pleasantly situated in wooded grounds, with its own sports field, playground and adventure playground. The original school was extended in 1987 to give us a total of seven classrooms with adjoining areas (wo of these classrooms are used as a music room and nurture group room), a hall, a well-stocked library and a computer suite. . Children in the Early Years class have access to a secure learning area. A quiet area and a recently constructed woodland walk are available for all children to use at break times. A room for the local community to use is also available.

Melton is designated a Community Primary School. The school has close links with the local area. The children are encouraged to work with local organisations and have established links with St. Andrew‟s Church, Sutton Hoo, Foxborrow Farm field studies centre and with local businesses. We always invite any new links with the local community.

At Melton we strongly believe that children learn best from being able to access a wide range of opportunities. We endeavour to make learning a real experience, involving children in their own learning every step of the way. The school has a positive reputation for its strength in the arts. This received national recognition in May 2012 when we were awarded an Artsmark by The Arts Council. Pupils work has been displayed around the local area. The children have also had the opportunity to perform at Snape Maltings in the Celebration of Schools Music, as well as performing to a variety of groups within the local area.

The school operates a genuine open door policy. A positive relationship between home and school is crucial in allowing your child to succeed both academically and socially during their time with us. We encourage all parents, both new and those with children at the school to let us know how we are doing, to tell us when things are going well, and to help us identify ways in which we can get even better. We would also welcome visits from parents at any point during the year. If possible, please telephone to make an appointment. During the school year, parents are invited to attend open evenings, concerts, sporting events and numerous other functions.

If you wish to find out more about our school please explore the website which contains a wide range of information and resources for parents and children.

We look forward to working with you over the coming years.

Yours sincerely,

Mark Girling
