At Marlfields we strive for excellence in all we do in school and in the wider community. We provide a place where we all can achieve our potential; develop our mind; be creative and cultivate our interests.
We have received the Ofsted report from when they visited the school on Thursday 2nd March 2017 to carry out a Section 8 inspection. Please click on the report below, to read it in full.
Our new weekly ‘Bake at Home Kits’ are ready and have gone to the first ten children who will enjoy all necessary ingredients and instructions to make something ‘delicious’ each week. Watch out on our weekly newsletter for the photos and comments.
MARLFIELDS PRIMARY ACADEMY bags a share of a £12.5million carrier bag charge fund.
Marlfields Primary Academy has bagged a massive £12,000 cash boost from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative.
The supermarket has teamed up with Groundwork on its Bags of Help initiative, which see grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 – all raised from the 5p bag levy – being awarded to environmental and greenspace projects.
Marlfields Primary Academy is one of the groups that submitted a bid which will see children in our neighbourhood learning to be citizens capable of recognising the importance of working alongside our eco system. Our environment does not only sustain life but can also be a place that can be enjoyed by all in a recreational way. Sandie Isherwood, Principal quoted “Being successful for a Bags of Help award is a real achievement for us and we thank all Congleton citizens who voted for us, this will allow us to so improve Congleton not only for the children but residents as well. If you are interested in more information on our project please just give us a call and the children will be more than happy to talk to you.’
Groundwork’s national Chief Executive, Graham Duxbury, said: “Bags of Help is giving our communities both the funding and the support to create better, healthier and greener places for everyone to enjoy. We’ve been thrilled to see the diversity of projects that have applied for funding, ranging from outdoor classrooms, sports facilities, community gardens, play areas and everything in between. They’re all fantastic projects that make a real difference in our neighbourhoods. We’re looking forward to learning the results of the customer vote and then supporting each group to bring their project to life.”
