A message from our Head Teacher

Welcome to our school website. At Marsden Primary School we are very proud of the work we do and hope you will experience a flavour of this as you browse our site.
We are fortunate to have a dedicated team of skilled professionals working at our school who understand the importance of putting the children at the heart of each learning experience. Our school vision is summed up in the phrase ‘Everyone Cares, Everyone Matters’ and when you visit our school, you will see this vision lived out by every individual.
Marsden Primary School welcomed comments from recent OFSTED inspectors, who noticed that ‘The care and support provided by staff at the school is of the highest quality.’
We look forward to welcoming you to our school in the near future so you can experience this quality first hand!

Year Six visits ‘The Word’

Year Six visited The Word in South Shields for a series of activities revolving around filming some  scripts written about World War Two.

The children also had a fascinating session on constructing Lego robots and then using bluetooth to link them to i-pads.

Here are some pictures of what we did.

Year Six find out about food for healthy hearts.

Two scientists from Greenshift education came into school to help Year Six find out more about keeping their heart healthy. Katie and Angela lead the class through a series of activities – they found out that our children knew quite a lot already about how the heart functions and how to keep it healthy.

Citizenship Award

PC Wilkinson joined us today to celebrate our Citizenship Award. It was very difficult to choose our nominees as we were looking for children who have good attendance, excellent behaviour and a great attitude at all times.

The nominees from Foundation Stage and Key Stage One were: Ruby, Lilly and Lainee.
The nominees from Key Stage Two were: Gabriel, Alex, Alanya and Tom M.

Our lucky winners for our Citizenship Award 2017 were Lilly and Gabriel!

Well done everyone!

Winter Wonderland

Today, the Nursery Children had a fantastic time at West Boldon Lodge learning all about being an Elf.

We started by making our own Christmas hats before exploring the Candy Cane forest. We searched for made Christmas jigsaws and sang Christmas songs as we toasted marsh mellows by the campfire. Then we went back inside to help deliver Christmas presents and drink some hot chocolate.

However the best part of the day was meeting Santa and finding out if we were on the Nice list.

As always the children were excellent ambassadors for the school.
