Our offer

We are part of the Peterborough City Council Local Offer for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.

The support we provide at Marshfields is student-centred. We work hard to liaise with parents and professionals to ensure that our students make progress and achieve their full potential, successfully transitioning into adulthood as confident, well-qualified citizens.

We have a dedicated teaching team across a wide range of subjects who have experience of working with young people with varied special educational needs.

Our teachers and support staff receive regular training and opportunity throughout an academic year to extend their knowledge and skill base of effective classroom strategies in order to meet the needs of students within their class.

Our teachers and support staff recognise the importance of delivering high-quality lessons and as a result, they plan lessons which are creative and inspiring. We ensure that practical learning activities are available for those students who require it and work with off-site providers to ensure curriculum opportunities we cannot deliver are still accessible for our students.

Students at Marshfields follow a differentiated secondary school curriculum, attending the full cohort of subjects they would find in a mainstream provision. The differentiated curriculum and careful identification of qualifications pathways ensure that individual SEND needs are met. We also offer individualised support through bespoke strategies and interventions, addressing the needs as outlined in the EHC plan.

For any further information please contact the school office who will be pleased to put you in touch with the appropriate members of staff to help you.
