Marner is a three form entry primary school, with a nursery, catering for the needs of a very wide range of pupils. The school also hosts a satellite autism/speech and language provision, with children attending on-site from Phoenix Special School. Please see the video below, which explains the excellent collaborative work between Phoenix Special School and Marner Primary, demonstrating our joint commitment to a learning model for social inclusion, we strongly believe benefits all our pupils.
A note to prospective parents, children do not gain entry to the Phoenix Satellite via Marner Primary School admissions. All admissions to the satellite are carefully thought through and are only open to children attending the main school at Phoenix.
At Marner, all children are valued and respected. We recognise that each child has a variety of abilities and that a child with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND) will require additional support, over and above the usual differentiated activities to enable them to access a broad and balanced curriculum. At Marner, our commitment to children with a special educational need or disability is reflected in our whole school policy.
We believe that each child should participate in the everyday life of the School. We aim to respond with sensitivity to the needs of the individual and to work in partnership with parents and outside professionals to create the best possible learning path for their child. We know that at times this can feel stressful for parents, as they navigate the best options for their child. We strongly encourage you to talk with us if you do have any questions or feel anxious.
