Achieve, Believe and Celebrate.
Welcome from the Headteacher
“Marsh Green is a good school. Pupils make better than expected progress in reading and mathematics.Pupils behave well and enjoy lessons because they are nurtured and supported in school by skilled and caring staff”. OFSTED July 2013
Marsh Green aims to provide a safe and secure sanctuary for all members of its close community. We try very hard at Marsh Green to help each child fulfil his or her potential, but recognise that this goes way beyond just educational results. We carefully track pupil progress to ensure pupils achieve what they are capable of and beyond. However, we also look at the whole child to develop caring, considerate citizens of the future who will aspire to great things. We look at enriching children’s lives by providing a wealth of experiences, many of which children have not had the opportunity to experience before…trips to the seaside, visits from authors, outdoor adventurous learning, working together across different age ranges, theatre visits, opportunities to play musical instruments…
Marsh Green also strongly believes in supporting families and parents by providing weekly drop-in sessions, family learning opportunities, parenting courses and financial support through a school bank and access to financial experts. We believe a strong partnership helps to more fully support our children as they grow up and choose their own pathways in life. We have a purpose-built provision for 2 year olds, our Young Explorers, where funding is available for 15 hours a week. The school caters for children between the ages of 2-11, meeting their needs appropriately for their stage of development.
Marsh Green is a part of Kingsbridge SCITT and we provide full time school placements for those wishing to undertake the GTP route.
At Marsh Green we want everyone to 'Be the best they can be'
I am very proud to be headteacher of Marsh Green Primary School. I would be delighted to invite you to visit our school and look forward to meeting you.
Mrs G Leigh, Headteacher
