Coronavirus update

Dear Parent/Carer,

From Monday 22 June we will invite groups of Year 5 pupils back into school on different days across a week. Year 5 pupils have only attended MBMS for approximately 7 months before the school was closed to all pupils. We feel we need to re-engage with them as the next group. We have now developed a comprehensive risk assessment that minimises risk across the school site and have adapted our policies and procedures to reflect this.

As this term progresses we also hope, if factors allow, to have year 8 pupils back for a period of time. Presently, we cannot confirm if we will have the capacity to invite year 7 pupils back before the end of the summer term.

From 22 June, year 6 provision remains the same;

  • Monday 6CBL
  • Tuesday 6EB
  • Wednesday 6SMc
  • Thursday 6SW
  • Friday 6LC

Year 5 will now build on top of this;

  • Monday 22 June 5AGR
  • Tuesday 23 June 5MD
  • Wednesday 24 June 5CF
  • Thursday 25 June 5CC
  • Friday 26 June 5FL

Year 4 Transition

A brand new section of our website was launched on 8 June.  It's aim is to provide detailed information to the Parents of Year 4 pupils joining Marden Bridge in September.

Current restrictions have curtailed our normal transitional experiences and we hope that this website will provide much needed guidance, advice and information to parents and pupils alike.

As the site contains some sensitive elements, it is password protected. If you are a parent or carer of a pupil joining us in September and have not received credentials, please contact the school office or email
