Virtual Spotlight Visit to Marine Academy Primary

Event details

Join NSN for our next virtual Spotlight visit to Marine Academy Primary on Tuesday 7th July at 10:00-11:00am.

Spotlight visits are events for senior leaders of open and pre-open free school groups. For this virtual event, the host school will give a presentation sharing their best practice and discussing their free school journey.

Marine Academy Primary is part of the Marine Academy all-through free school based in Plymouth. The school is unique: it is the first ‘marine’ primary school, and the first free school in the south west to be graded as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted (June 2015). Ofsted spoke highly of the teaching team at Marine Academy Primary: ‘Teaching is outstanding; teachers are passionate and show a determination to provide the best education they can for pupils.’

The focus of this Spotlight visit will be on how the school manages transitions (reception and secondary), and plans for recovery and catch up as a result of the pandemic. The content will be relevant to all primary and all-through free school leaders.

We are always on the lookout for fantastic free schools to share their journey with other free school leaders. Have you been open for more than three years and are interested in sharing your best practice? We would love to hear from you!
