Gallery of Greatness
Our Gallery of Greatness is a place where our community celebrate fantastically great people. The gallery is curated to include inspirational individuals that reflect the diversity that exists within Modern Britain and the wider world. Every half-term, the gallery features a ‘spotlight on’ feature. This is an opportunity to celebrate achievement on an individual level. In October, we decided to feature pupils from our school in the gallery in recognition of our own fantastically great children.
Malvern Primary School is committed to ensuring equality of provision throughout the school community. To achieve this, our equality objectives are as follows:
- To promote cultural development and understanding through a rich range of experience, both in and beyond the school
- To tackle prejudice and promote understanding in relation to people with disabilities
- To ensure that pupils, parents and staff understand an accurate definition of bullying and ensure that school processes and procedures are effective in preventing it and tackling it should any form of bullying occur.

- To allow equal access to information for all parents
- To ensure that our curriculum provision for relationships and sex education matches the requirements from the newly updated Religious Education curriculum
