Vision and Values

As part of Acorn Multi Academy Trust, we aim to provide high quality education and deliver the best possible outcomes for young people, enabling every child to flourish, regardless of background.

Our school mission is to 'Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength... Love your neighbour as yourself.' Mark 12v30-31

Nurture, Grow, Flourish

Nuture Grow FlourishAt Marshwood, we are committed to motivating and nurturing all members of our school family to be happy, self-confident and supportive of one another. We provide a high-quality, engaging curriculum which is enhanced by a range of stimulating and enriching experiences. We are committed to seeing everyone grow in understanding, appreciation and respect for themselves, people around them, and the world they live in. We want everyone to grow in their love of learning, creativity, and sense of both individuality and collaboration. All of this enables each person to flourish, aspiring to live out an active and fulfilling life within school, the local community and beyond.

Respect, Wisdom, Love

Our core Christian values, chosen with the children, permeate through school life. They guide us all and help us to reflect upon how we can be respectful, wise and loving individuals with the resilience to cope with the challenges of life. We focus on one value in particular each half term across our two year cycle.

Love God - Trust and Forgiveness

with all your Heart - Kindness and Joy

with all your Soul - Peace and Hope

with all your Mind - Wisdom and Honesty

with all your Strength - Courage and Perseverance

Love your Neighbour - Respect and Friendship

Through our times of Collective Worship, the whole school community engage in understanding and living out our values as individuals, as a family and within the local community and the wider world.
