Values and vision 

The school has a policy of support and respect. It welcomes children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). Its mission is to provide outstanding education that ensures all pupils reach their greatest potential. 

As part of MAP, the primary school has similar values to the secondary school when it comes to its specialist subjects. Technology, art and sport are all integral to Plymouth, and they are to Marine Academy Plymouth. The academy won a national Special Needs Inclusion award in the Education Business Awards.

Ofsted report 

“From their starting points, pupils achieve exceptionally well in reading, writing and mathematics and make very rapid progress. Achievement gaps between disadvantaged pupils and their peers have closed. Similarly, pupils identified with special educational needs are also making outstanding progress.”
