nmcn and St Mary Magdalene CE Primary School announce innovative partnership

24th September 2019

nmcn PLC and St Mary Magdalene CE Primary School are delighted to announce a new partnership which will see nmcn bring specialist knowledge and expertise to the school’s curriculum.

The new partnership for the 2019/2020 school year, sees specialist professionals from across nmcn work with 7-11 year olds from St Mary CE Magdalene Primary School on projects involving Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). STEM is a key area in which the school must develop their children and nmcn will bring a different dimension to the curriculum.

The lessons and projects have been designed alongside the Novel Study approach taken in the school as each will link with the books that children are studying. nmcn will also provide support to the younger children at the school through the provision of much-needed resources for ‘engineering areas’ in Foundation and Keystage One classes.

Novels being studied and supported

 

For nmcn, the partnership is part of their Positive Impact plan. Within the plan nmcn have set out their goal to inspire young people around the world of work and encourage them to the construction industry. They have committed to providing meaningful interventions to young people under the age of 12.

Sam Robinson, Headteacher at St Mary Magdalene CE Primary School commented “We’re excited to begin this partnership as it will add real-life contexts and impetus for our STEM curriculum. One of our key responsibilities as a school is to provide children with the skills and ambition to be successful in their adult life; this partnership will help us to fulfil that role.”

Rich Smith, Relationship Manager at nmcn added “Our partnership with St Mary Magdalene Primary School provides a hugely engaging programme which will support both the national curriculum and Ofsted standards.”

Charlotte Crake, Customer Liaison Manager for nmcn added “Our links to the novels being studied by the children will hopefully inspire them to consider a STEM related career in the future.”
