Welcome to Marshland Primary Academy

I would like to say a very warm welcome and thank you for taking the time to look at our website.

I am delighted to have this opportunity to tell you about the academy and hope it will give you an insight into the wide range of opportunities offered to every pupil.

If there is any more information you need then please do not hesitate to get in touch and make an appointment to come and visit the staff and children in the academy.

At Marshland Primary Academy, we aim to provide the very highest standards of education. All the staff have high expectations and work closely together to ensure each child achieves their full potential.

We aim to provide the children, staff and visitors with a safe, warm and welcoming environment; one in which relationships can be fostered and learning can be loved.

At our academy, we encourage the development of independence, respect, ambition, enthusiasm, kindness and confidence. We also emphasise the importance of caring, sharing and learning to work and play together. These are skills and attitudes which are important throughout life and will equip our children to be respectful and responsible members of a community.

Obviously, the school is only part of a child’s education. The staff recognise that it is imperative to involve parents and carers with the process of learning. We actively encourage a partnership between home and school. I strongly believe in an ‘open-door’ policy and encourage parents to come in and ask questions, raise concerns or to simply up-date us with information.

We all want the best for the children of Marshland Primary Academy and by working together we can ensure this happens.
