Welcome to Marsden Junior School
School Closed due to Strike Action
Thursday, 10th July 2014
Marsden Junior School is a caring school where we encourage children of all abilities to achieve their potential and to have a voice within the school. We ensure our pupils access a broad and balanced curriculum so that all pupils are able to experience success. Our pupils enjoy coming to school and behave well when they are here. We are very proud of their achievements and the contributions they make to the life of our school.
School Arrival and Departure
Please be reminded that children should not arrive at school before 8.30am. The rear doors will be opened at 8.50am and close at 9.00am. Children should use the visitor entrance if they arrive after 9.00am. The porch doors open at the end of the school day at 3.10pm and will be closed at 3.20pm. If a child has not been collected by 3.20pm they must come back into school, wait outside the office and parents will be contacted. Parents and carers are responsible for providing adequate care for their children from 3.10pm onwards. Please ensure children are collected on time, both from school, and After School Clubs.
Our Lunchtime supervisors have recently taken part in a training session to help improve the provision of activities available over the lunch break. One of the recommendations is that we update our selection of small toys and puzzles available. Another suggestion is to provide a dressing up box. If you have any items which you feel may be suitable, no longer need and wish to donate them to the school. Please bring them into the school office.
