Welcome to the new school year!

The autumn term is well underway now, two and a half weeks in! We have welcomed forty-three Reception children in to the school and eight children into other year groups. We hope that they will all be very happy at Marden Primary School.

This term, we have started to teach our new curriculum. Whilst it covers all the subjects and objectives of the National curriculum, we have tailored it to suit the children at our school. Up until Christmas, children across the school we be learning about the global theme of ‘Inclusion and Diversity’. We will be exploring different aspects of this through different subjects, for example what makes us special, belonging and community. Take a look at your child’s class pages to find out more and discover how you can help your child at home.

After a long wait, the mini-pitch is now progressing nicely. The toilet block is in and the bulk of the work on the pitch itself has been completed. There is still paving, fencing and landscaping to finish but we are hopeful that this will be done soon – weather permitting!
