School Information

Marlborough Road Academy – is a friendly, caring school with an exciting future.

Parents, staff and pupils have high standards and expectations and work together to help everyone achieve their best. Through the Salford Academy Trust, we are able to provide our children and parents with training and opportunities to explore the wider world.

We are all very proud of our school and its unique cultural and ethnic mix and the Academy and the Trust work together to realise individual ambition.

Our Vision

At Marlborough Road Academy we are dedicated to providing the highest possible standard of education for your child.  We are keen to work together with families, the community and a range of other agencies to make sure that all of our pupils are safe, happy and successful.  We want all of our pupils to grow and develop into the best version of themselves that they can be and to be able to make the most of opportunities that come their way.

Our Values

Our school values underpin everything that we do.  At Marlborough Road Academy we believe that our values provide the essential building blocks for well rounded citizens.  Our values are:

Knowing yourself
Making good choices
Trying your best

These values are modelled by the adults in school and are explicitly taught to and expected of our pupils and visitors.  The school values are regularly discussed with pupils at a weekly assembly and are rewarded with a series of badges, which pupils collect.

Our Rules

At Marlborough Road Academy our rules are: be safe, choose kind, work hard.  These rules form the basis of our approach toward the standards of behaviour we expect from both adults and children alike.  It also informs our reward system.  Each week, certificates are awarded to pupils and adults (nominated by pupils) under these three categories and postcards are sent home to parents/ carers. 

At Marlborough Road Academy we believe in encouraging everyone to reflect on how well they demonstrate the school rules and to identify and build on their strengths.  Developing relationships is very important to us and each child is welcomed into class in the morning with a handshake from their teacher and dismissed with wishes for a pleasant evening.
