Marden Vale CE Academy
We are a larger than average school in the town of Calne (NOR 292) with a Resource Base for children with complex needs. We continually strive for all of us to show our one school rule 'We all look after each other', 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. In our recent SIAMS inspection, the school was graded as ‘Good’ in all areas. We are excited at the prospect of the next stage of our improvement journey, as we look to raise standards further under the leadership of our new headteacher.
'The school has a strong vision of care of pupils and their families and consequently this is a strength of the school, creating a loving Christian atmosphere in which all feel safe, respected and valued.' – Marden Vale SIAMS report June 2016
