It is a real pleasure and absolute privilege as the Executive Head Teacher of Marine Park Primary School to welcome you to our school website.

Our unique school is part of our wonderful South Shields Community and is close to some of the most historic parts of South Tyneside.

The whole school team aspire to create a truly outstanding school built on secure foundations of excellent teaching, a memorable and creative curriculum and consistently high academic attainment and progress for all of our learners.

At Marine Park Primary School we value education in the broadest sense because it has the power to change and improve people’s lives. We believe that every child really does matter. To ensure each child reaches their full potential, we give them the opportunities and experiences to enjoy and achieve, in a safe and healthy environment.

Together we will make Marine Park Primary an exciting place for our children in which to learn, grow and flourish in the centre of our vibrant community and also as a beacon of excellence across our town.
