|Marldon Church of England Primary School|
'This is a very good school with a particularly caring ethos in which pupils develop very positive attitudes and behaviour. Very good leadership and management enable the school to sustain good teaching so that pupils achieve well and attain above average standards. The teaching team projects a caring and fully inclusive ethos that firmly underpins the Christian basis and principles on which the school is run. Pupils are given very good opportunities to think about rules and codes of behaviour and this leads to an atmosphere around the school where pupils are keen to learn, respect and value each other and develop very good relationships.'
