Parent & Carers
In a recent survey, 90% of our parents said that they would recommend Marlborough Road Academy to their friends and family.
The staff at Marlborough Road are committed to improving the life chances of the children in our care by providing the very best education we can. Staff are committed to quality first teaching to ensure that children acquire the basic skills of reading, writing and mathematics. We recognise that children need to succeed in the world and therefore have to be confident in their literacy and numeracy skills. We also want the children to be able to apply their skills in different contexts so that they are well prepared for their future education and the world of work.
A common thread running through the work of the Academy is broadening pupils' horizons. This is achieved through the curriculum and by developing trips and visits and encouraging visitors to extend children's understanding. This broader approach to learning continues at lunchtime when children have a wide range of opportunities to develop their skills.
Parent quotes - July 2020:
"This school offers the most lovely and nurturing atmosphere. The staff members are super patient and understanding and are constantly working to promote children’s social and emotional wellbeing. My child had a previous negative school experience which had a great impact on his wellbeing. I couldn’t be more pleased with him having joined Marlborough Primary School. He has received the best support from day one and it has greatly improved his confidence, he's made progress in his subjects, feels more positive about himself and enjoys going to school. I am so grateful to everyone at the school and would encourage every parent to consider this school as the most wonderful and high standard where children thrive feeling safe and happy"
"I just wanted to say, thank you so much for the food. It really does help and the kids are loving it (the strawberry didn’t even make it to the fridge!)"
