It was a pleasure to attend the annual Junior School Remembrance Service at the Cenotaph in Marsden Park. The whole school attended with members of The Junior Leadership Team reading a poem. Mrs. Mansell and her staff should be commended on the behaviour and respectful way the students remembered the fallen.

Reflective Badges

Keeping Children Safe

As the nights draw in, it becomes more difficult for motorists to see people, especially if they are not wearing any bright items of clothing. At Marsden Infant and Nursery School, the Head Teacher Mrs Swallow, took an assembly for the children where they were told about the dangers of the dark nights and how to keep safe whilst walking. To ensure the children can be seen at night, we provided every child at the school with a reflective owl, which can be attached to an item of clothing or a bag.
