Monkwick Infant School and Nursery became a member of The Sigma Trust on 1st September 2016. We believe this enables us to plan for your child's educational journey through from 3-16 years.

What we do in school?
Most importantly we provide a safe atmosphere where children are valued: ensuring that this experience of school is a positive one. We believe that self-esteem plays a vital part in raising children's achievement. As part of this work we recognise children's effort, enthusiasm, progress and achievement. Children are rewarded with praise, stickers and certificates. We also recognise those children who maintain a caring approach to others and the environment.
