'We all look after each other'

Welcome to Marden Vale C.E Academy


I have been in post since September 2017 and am priveged to be leading such a caring, nurturing and hard working school community with the children at the heart of all we do. We had a SIAMs inspection during June 2016 which gave the school a good outcome and as a school we are awaiting an OFSTED inspection.


At Marden Vale we have worked hard on embedding our one school rule-

'We all look after each other'

and we continually strive for all of us to show this, at all times during our time in class, in school and in our lives outside of school. By following this rule and by having a positive ethos, we are all committed to ensuring children have a wide array of learning experiences, helping children to attain to the best of their abilities, and develop them so they are equipped with the knowledge, skills and values that will enable them to become fantastic members of their community.


As a Church School, we have good links with the clergy of St Mary’s Church. As well as clergy leading some worship within our school, we hold services in church, support community events/fundraising and use the church as a learning resource for our children.

One of my key aims is to foster strong links between school and home and positive, strong links between us are essential. All staff are available to talk to at the end of each day, and we welcome any comments, thoughts or help you can give. In addition I am always on the school gate at the start of each day if you want to raise any concerns you may have or just to wish me a Good morning!


If you have any questions or would like to come and look around our wonderful school, please do not hesitate to contact us.
