“We aim to send all young people into an ever-changing world able and qualified to play their full part in it.”


The Monkwood Pledges are at the very heart of empowering students to be confident, well-rounded, enthusiastic, caring, happy, can-do people, ready for the wider world. The Pledges, coupled with the Monkwood Way, develop personal skills and attributes and broaden the horizons of our students.

At Monkwood Primary, we aim to send all young people into an ever changing world able and qualified to play their full part in it. The qualified aspect of this speaks for itself; we aim for our students to achieve strong qualifications that support them in their next steps of education, training or employment. 

Furthermore, a student who makes that commitment to the Monkwood Pledges will develop independence and self-discipline by augmenting their participation, performance, communication, creativity and cultural capital.
