Marlborough Primary School is a happy, vibrant school which is situated in a semi-rural, relatively affluent suburb of Macclesfield. The school was originally built in 1967 and was extended in 1994 to provide for the needs of a growing housing estate. The older part of school has 6 traditional classrooms; the newer extension has 8 classrooms and two large shared practical areas. The school benefits from two halls, one of which houses a library, and both are used for P.E., dance, drama, music and P.S.H.E. as well as for school meals. The school has a main kitchen with meals provided by a small catering team employed directly by the school. There is also a children’s kitchen used for curriculum work. In addition to the main building, the school has several mobile classrooms, which accommodate a SEND and EAL resources base, out of school care club and a separately run pre-school.

The school Governors took the decision to convert to an Academy in 2015 and joined Fallibroome Academy Trust on the 1st September 2019. Joining Fallibroome Trust has provided excellent collaborative opportunities and has enhanced our Continuous Professional Development programme.

The school received a short, one day Ofsted inspection in January 2019 and retained its Good grade.
The report states that:
“Pupils enjoy coming to school. This is reflected in pupils’ high rates of attendance, commendable behaviour and positive attitudes to learning. This is a school where pupils’ achievements are celebrated. The school’s annual ‘festival on the field’, the art exhibition and the displays around school of pupils’ work, all showcase the best of what pupils at Marlborough have to offer. Children get on well together. They are quick to lend a hand when classmates need help. They are keen to please their teachers.”

It goes on to say “Staff are proud to work at the school and have confidence in their leaders and managers. They share your vision for the school’s future. Staff work exceptionally well together as a team. Staff are keen to help each other, making sure that their different experience and expertise benefit their colleagues. In particular, this helps teachers in the early days of their career, as well as new staff who join the school.”

Our current School Development Plan (SDP) priorities are:
• Monitor implementation and development of our recently introduce curriculum with a focus on impact and assessment.
• Ensure a consistent and proactive approach to behaviour management to ensure the best social and academic outcomes for pupils and a happy and supportive environment for all stakeholders.
• Introduce a new synthetic phonics scheme in line with new government regulations and to further develop early reading skills.
• Further develop the teaching of writing.

In addition to the priority School Development Plans, each subject leader contributes to the SDP, creating specific action plans for their responsibility area. This empowers staff to ensure that all areas of school can grow and develop. In our drive to improve, we welcome innovation but also place great value in the traditional elements of school life – good manners, perseverance and hardworking attitudes. Visitors to school often comment on the excellent behaviour of pupils and the positive atmosphere.

There are currently 378 pupils on roll between the ages of 4 and 11 years. Although many of our children attend the on-site, privately run pre-school, the school also takes children from a wide range of preschool settings. The school has a good reputation for supporting children with SEND and we are proud of our inclusive approach. ASP shows that in 2019/20, 10.4% of our pupils were at SEN Support on the Special Educational Need and Disability register and 3.1% of our children have an Education Health Care Plan. 10% of children are on the Gifted and Talented register and the school is keen to further develop an appropriate range of challenge and support for these pupils. The number of pupils entitled to free school meals is below the national average with 7.3% of pupils classed as Ever 6 and in receipt of Pupil Premium funding. We also have a small number of pupils who are in the care of the Local Authority. 4.4% of our children have English as an Additional Language. The school is sometimes used by relocation agencies who assist families from abroad to settle in the Macclesfield area.

Alongside striving for high academic standards, the school enjoys an excellent reputation for competitive and non-competitive sport and many pupils and staff get involved in the wide range of sport offered. We have been awarded the Gold Active Mark in recognition of this work for four years on the run and in 2019, we were very proud to be awarded the Platinum Active Mark. The school also ensures that pupils have lots of opportunities to take part in performing arts, including Fallibroome’s performing arts week, which are very well supported by parents.

The school has a supportive Local Governing Body who are involved in school improvement. Governors meet twice per term at full Governing Body meetings which are split into two agendas: pupils and resources. The Multi Academy Trust has a Board of Trustees who meet regularly to oversee the work of the Trust. We have an active PTA who provide a wide range of social activities for children and their families, raising about £10,000 each year. Parents have high aspirations for their children and many take an active part in the life of the school.
