Letter from Executive Headteacher & Headteacher

At the close of a very challenging year, we were just wondering what to write to you all in our end of term letter, when I received an email to say that our Willow Ofsted report had been published. 
It states that Willow is ‘more than a school’ and that ‘we work tirelessly to understand the needs of our pupils and their families.‘  The same is true of Marish.
A little while later, we received an email from a parent of a year 6 leaver which said the following:
‘Good teachers do not expect children to learn the way they teach; they teach the way the children learn. This is exactly why Marish is so special and well done for that.‘ The same is true of Willow
Resilience is a quality we aspire to develop in all our children, so after such a year, perhaps it is fitting that the last word comes from a resilient child. This young man, also a year 6 leaver, commented recently that: ‘I will never give up because I know I have to believe in myself.’
We have always been very proud of Marish and Willow, but never before have we felt quite so honoured to be a part of this amazing, resilient community. Thank you for all you have contributed to our partnership this year. Wishing you a wonderful summer filled with rest and refreshment.
Mrs Denham and Miss Court

Dear Parents and carers,    
What a relief it is to have made it into April Finally. We have the prospect of the summer term ahead, with warmer days and lighter evenings, along with the easing of restrictions on socialising and family get togethers. Thank you so much for your continued support and partnership over what has been a very challenging year, not just for our community or even our country but for the whole of humanity spread across the globe. 
At our schools, staff and children have been thrilled to be back together since the 8th March and we have been fortunate once again to not have to close any bubbles. Marish Academy Trust’s focus on developing resilience has paid off, with most children eagerly accessing the high quality face to face learning that is vital to their continued achievement and wellbeing.
