Marshwood CE Primary Academy is a Voluntary Aided Church of England School within the Diocese of Sailsbury.
The school is located within the Golden Cap Team of Churches which consists of twelve churches in West Dorset and East Devon. We have strong links and a very close relationship with the village church of St. Mary's in Marshwood. It is right beside our School and the children use the church building on an almost daily basis for many different activities. We hold regular Collective Worship within the church. The school actively promotes key services and visits the church for Harvest, Remembrance, Christmas, Easter and for the occasion of our Year 6 children leaving. We also regularly visit the church to help support RE learning or local history or to help in some way, such as carrying out research on the state of War Graves within the churchyard or creating tapestries and art to decorate the inside of the church.
