Marner at the Tower Hamlets Primary Cross Country

 From Ms Scott:

Congratulations to the 33 children from Years 3 to 6 who represented Marner in the Tower Hamlets Primary Cross Country in Victoria Park. Over 550 children took part this year! Year 3s and 4s run 800m, with Year 5s and 6s running 1500m – our children were brilliant, giving it their all and showing great sportsman and sportswoman-ship. A special mention to Favor, in Y5, who came a very impressive 3rd place in her race!

Football and Multi-Sports Pitch – Update!

We have opened and started using one side of our new pitch development this week.

From tomorrow, we will open the multi-sports side for playtimes initially so that all of the children have an opportunity to visit and get used to the space. The multi- sports side was delayed by the contractors over running with their work but the whole pitch will be fully up and running from Tuesday 27th June.

High Temperatures!

Just a reminder to all parents and carers to make sure that children have a hat to wear during the current sunny weather and high temperatures we are experiencing.

We have made arrangements at school for additional water to be available during lunchtime, as well as rotating classes so that they have time outside but also time in the shade. The school has purchased additional fans for the classrooms too.

Thank you for your continued support.

Bring Your Own Device — Tuesday 20th June 2017

We understand how difficult it can be to know what your children are doing online. To help you, we are running a “Bring Your Own Device Parental Control   Workshop” where we will set up parental controls on your devices with you.

  • Session in the Main Hall from 9:00-9:45am
  • Session repeated in the Main Hall from 2:45-3:30pm
  • Drop-in session from 3.30pm—4pm

There will be information about Online Safety and our technician will be there to help with parental controls and you will have the opportunity to ask us questions.


School Funding Crisis – Open Letter

Within this blog post you will find a link to an open letter which has been sent to Justine Greening, Secretary of State for Education by Teachers and Headteachers from Tower Hamlets – a copy of the letter signed by headteachers, teachers and the Mayor is available here.

For me, this transcends mere party politics and is about the investment we make to support our children to learn, grow and develop in a society which values all people for the unique talents they have and the contribution they can make.
