"We know what we are; but not who we may become."
Every child at Montgomery is given the chance to thrive, and what makes Montgomery special is the wealth of opportunities that every single child is provided with during their time at primary school that stretches way beyond the curriculum. We believe that enrichment is an entitlement!
At the heart of our curriculum is our belief that physical and mental well being is vital. Pupils access specialist PE provision alongside a vast array of additional sporting clubs and competitions. We have been awarded the Gold Artsmark in recognition of our enriched curriculum, which includes working alongside the Hippodrome Theatre, an artist-in-residence, Birmingham Royal Ballet and The Royal Shakespeare Company to name but a few of the partnerships we have cultivated over the years.
Most importantly, pupils are happy at Montgomery and are big-hearted. They support local charities and work alongside the local community volunteering and know what it means to be an active, positive member of society.
From performing on the radio to working with a horticultural expert, each experience is mapped from EYFS to Year 6 and helps our young learners develop the confidence, resilience and articulacy to become successful citizens.
"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go."
At Montgomery we have a dedicated, enthusiastic and talented team of staff. Everyone is committed to ensuring all children at Montgomery achieve their very best academically through excellent teaching and a well-crafted, ambitious curriculum. Each classroom is supportive and inclusive and every child feels worthy, safe, and encouraged to participate actively. Teachers continuously assess pupil progress, provide constructive feedback, and adapt their teaching accordingly. Ultimately, excellent teaching is a transformative force that empowers our children, equipping them with the knowledge, language, and confidence to succeed academically and in life.
"Everyone is born in. We don’t have to earn the right to be included – we are all born as equal citizens and part of a community."
National Development Team for Inclusion
Montgomery provides a nurturing environment where every child feels valued, respected, and supported. Each individual's unique strengths and abilities are recognised and embraced. We cater to the diverse needs of pupils, fostering an atmosphere of acceptance and understanding. Collaboration and teamwork are encouraged, enabling children to learn from one another's perspectives and experiences. Through open dialogue, empathy, and awareness, we promote a sense of belonging, empowering children to reach their full potential, and preparing them to become compassionate and inclusive members of society.
"Creativity takes courage."
We are immensely proud of our arts curriculum. The arts play a crucial role in school, offering a profound and intrinsic value that enhances our pupils' lives in countless ways. They serve as a powerful means of expression, allowing children to convey their emotions, thoughts, and ideas in unique and creative ways. Through visual arts, music, dance, theatre, and literature, we inspire imagination and creativity, fostering personal growth and self-discovery.
We provide an avenue for pupils to explore their identities, challenge conventional thinking, and push the boundaries of innovation. Moreover, our arts curriculum promotes critical thinking, problem-solving, and communication skills. All staff encourage collaboration and cooperation, which nurtures a sense of community and empathy. The arts at Montgomery bridges cultural divides, promoting cross-cultural understanding and appreciation.
"They cannot stop me. I will get my education, if it is in the home, school, or anyplace."
