Martinshaw is a one-form entry school where children and staff are happy, resilient, motivated, independent, aspiring, well behaved and hard working. The children have a healthy outlook on life and are well equipped for their next journey into secondary education. We believe in inclusion of all children and openly encourage the support of parents, governors and other stakeholders to ensure that all children reach their full potential.

About Us

As the Head Teacher of Martinshaw Primary School, it is a pleasure to welcome you to our wonderful school. We are very much a community here at Martinshaw, with a happy, nurturing and aspirational ethos.

At Martinshaw, we see every child as an individual, developing their specific talents and interests. We pride ourselves on helping each child to grow and develop socially and emotionally, as well as ensuring that they achieve their academic potential. As you look through our prospectus, you will see that we focus on bringing ‘learning to life’ through a challenging and creative curriculum which is full of real-life experiences. Our school is a vibrant and enabling learning environment with excellent resources and facilities.

We are proud of our passionate and dedicated team of talented teachers and classroom assistants, all of whom believe that our children come first. This enables us, along with the support of our Parents/Carers, to prepare children for the wider world. At Martinshaw, we believe that we can succeed together.
