Welcome to Marfleet Primary School
Our school ethos is borne out within our four core values: Excellence, Belonging, Opportunity, Respect
Excellence – To inspire and instil in others , the desire to be the best we can.
Every lesson counts – we believe that through expert teaching and support all children can achieve a high standard. We provide a curriculum which is both broad and balanced and which offers all children an opportunity to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding in a full range of subject areas. Our thematic, topic approach to learning fosters children’s natural curiosity for discovering and learning about the world we live in. We believe that children should have a wide range of experiences, achieving high standards in academic subjects whilst taking part in creative and sporting opportunities. Children enjoy and are motivated by learning.
Strength in Partnership – We value and promote effective collaboration at all levels, from within our school extending to the local community and to our partners across our group. Communication and the ability to work in partnership is a strength of the school. We welcome and actively encourage an open dialogue with all those involved in the life of the school.
High standards for all – We are a community celebrating success for all. Our expert staff team have high expectations of themselves as well as our pupils. In return our school provides staff with outstanding professional opportunities. We pride ourselves in the training opportunities we provide for the development of subject knowledge, teaching and leadership skills.
Belonging – To work together as a community, having a unique and valued part to play within the academy trust.
Feeling safe – our academy is safe, friendly and welcoming. We have high expectations of all our children’s behaviour. Pupils at Marfleet Primary School know that wow behaviour is expected of them. Children are praised and rewarded for trying their best, for being kind, hardworking and well behaved.
Every child matters – Each child is taught in the way that suits them best. For some children this might involve more personalised support either one to one, or in small groups or for some it could mean stretching them to keep them challenged in their thinking.
Parental partnership – we believe passionately that children, parents and staff belong to a learning community. We work really closely with parents to enable them to understand how they can best support their child in the learning journey. We provide opportunities during the year for parents to come into the School to see how lessons are taught. Parents are actively encouraged to discuss with us at any time any individual needs or concerns. We see this as a really important part of our partnership. We also have a School Leader for behaviour and wellbeing, based in our treehouse who creates and supports great links between home and school. The school also have a number of parent ambassadors that support the school and other parents within the school.
Teamwork – Together Everyone Achieves More – we know that for us , success is built from team work. Belonging to a wider academy group means we have access to an extensive range of expertise. We access this in order to contribute to improving all aspects of the experience we deliver to our children.
Opportunity – To give, and be given, the opportunities to grow, flourish and celebrate success.
Specialist teaching opportunities – As a school we believe that children deserve high quality teaching from staff equipped with specialist training. As such we have specialist teaching in Music and PE and offer our staff a range of CPD opportunities to ensure they are equipped in delivering a high quality curriculum to all.
Wrap around care – For those families who need to access extended care facilities, we do offer a breakfast club from 8.00am every morning – the entrance in free and children just pay for what they have eaten. We also offer an extensive range of extra-curricular and lunch time clubs for children to enjoy.
Respect – Building positive relationships is at the heart of all we do. We expect all adults and pupils within the school to respect each other and act with integrity. We believe that building a firm future involves trust and honesty at all levels. We celebrate achievement and through honest discourse, reflect on aspects to improve. We respect individual differences at school and personal levels.
