About Us

South Marston C of E Primary School is a popular oversubscribed village primary school located to the East of Swindon.  We have served the community of South Marston for over 140 years; today families from surrounding areas also choose our school because of its reputation, its traditions and its Christian background. 

The staff and governors of our school aim to provide a happy, secure and stimulating environment; our mission statement is "Achievement for all". We foster a family ethos where everyone is valued and makes a unique contribution to the life of the school. 

Our Values

Our school values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.

Our Mission Statement is 'Achievement for all'

Proverbs 8:11: "For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it."

We believe in living "life in all its fullness".  We do this through our values of:

Wisdom, Dignity, Hope and Community.

We believe learning creates wisdom; kindness fosters community; opportunities give hope; and respect brings dignity.

School Values

During Collective Worship (Assembly) , which takes place every day, we teach the children about the following Christian Values, which we believe have an important part to play in everyone's lives, whether Christian or not. Through Bible stories we teach our children to be tolerant of others who may have different beliefs to our own.

About Diocese of Bristol Academies Trust

DBAT was founded in 2012, enabling the Diocese of Bristol’s Board of Education to sponsor academies.

DBAT families of schools work together on teaching, learning and administrative work, ensuring that collaboration results in improved outcomes in all areas.

Mission Statement

DBAT’s core purposes are to:

• focus on improving the educational experiences, employment prospects and life chances of young people, especially those from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds;
• demonstrate that children’s life-chances are improved when their formal education is within the context of an Academy that is founded in the Christian tradition, establishes an ethos that is distinctively Christian and embraces the very best practices in teaching, learning, leadership, management and safety;
• accelerate students’ levels of attainment and achievement, and raises student, teacher and parental aspirations and ambitions;
• help to create more cohesive communities enhancing opportunities for social mobility by striving to eliminate the attainment gap between students from disadvantaged backgrounds and young people who by circumstances of birth and inheritance take for granted their automatic right to a good education;
• transform the overall performance of underperforming schools in deprived areas, helping to improve and innovate in all aspects of teaching, learning and leadership and promoting the development of future leaders.


Diocese of Bristol Academies Trust (DBAT) aspires to transform the educational landscape of the Diocese, working with all Church academies (including educationally under-performing academies in disadvantaged socio-economic areas) to accelerate student attainment and contribute to community cohesion, so transforming academy performance and students’ life chances through excellent leadership.


DBAT adopts the Diocesan values for schools which is that families of schools collectively meet all students’ needs and are based on the fundamental belief that all students can achieve, succeed and thrive. We own that it is our job to ensure this happens so that:
• Families protect all their member schools
• Families of schools meet the needs of all employees
• Families facilitate knowledge transfer
• Families distribute innovation
• Families save time and money
• Families ensure that all students can achieve, succeed and thrive
• Families deal effectively with special educational needs
• Families support new and existing leaders
• Families embed the capacity to improve/manage change
• Families build leadership capacity and succession
• Families aid the integration of Children’s services

In all Families there will be stronger and weaker partners but all are valued.
