Maun Infant and Nursery School is situated in New Ollerton, an ex-mining village just 3 miles from the legendary Sherwood Forest. It is a mixed area though some aspects of social deprivation do exist. The school was built in the 1970s and was largely open plan until recently, when a building project modernised the internal school layout with walls and doors to separate classrooms throughout KS1, and to more clearly define shared areas. There are currently four classes in Key Stage 1: two Year 1 and two Year 2. Our two F2 classes are housed within the main school building, sharing their space for free-flow indoor and outdoor activities as part of the Early Years Curriculum. Maun Nursery occupies a separate building and outdoor play area, with up to 39 children in each morning and afternoon session. Across the school, the learning environment is welcoming and celebratory of our children’s achievements. The Maun team is a strong and creative one; we all work well together and are committed to promoting the strong school ethos whilst driving the curriculum using a project-based approach to make learning-links. We also work collaboratively with the families of our pupils and see this as crucial in helping children maximise their life chances. We strive to empower pupils in their own learning, making very good progress through the provision of an innovative curriculum which is delivered through consistently high-quality teaching. Our curriculum enables active learning which is well-matched to the interests and needs of our children, whilst making good use of our fabulous grounds. Our drive for excellence has seen us updating our curriculum over the past year, to make the most of local learning opportunities and to meet the needs of our community. We are committed to providing an integrated approach to curriculum planning while meeting the objectives of national requirements. We keenly recognise the value in learning breadth, especially in areas such as art, music, dance and drama to positively enhance curriculum learning and promote positive mental health and wellbeing amongst our pupils. At the end of Key Stage 1, pupils transfer to The Forest View Academy, the Key Stage 2 school which shares our site. We are involved in on-going, close partnership work with our KS2 colleagues to ensure an effective transition programme is in place.
