Ofsted Inspection Sept 2018 quotes;

St Mark’s is a nurturing and happy school where pupils behave well and work hard.  Pupils are polite to visitors and get on well with each other and the adults who teach them. Along with other school leaders, including governors, you have sustained many of the school’s strengths, including the positive and welcoming ethos. 

Parents are overwhelmingly positive about the school. They value the care, guidance and support which their children receive and the positive relationships that they have with members of staff.

Outcomes have improved in mathematics, and many pupils now make strong progress across key stage 2 in this subject. Pupils are also making better progress in reading, and the provisional results for 2018 show that the proportion achieving the expected standard at the end of key stage 2 has risen significantly.

There is a strong culture of safeguarding at St Mark’s. Leaders have ensured that all safeguarding policies meet current requirements, and that appropriate checks are made on all adults who work with children at the school. Safeguarding records are detailed and show that the school works effectively with outside agencies, where appropriate, to support vulnerable pupils and families.

Pupils say that they feel safe in school. They said that staff help them to learn what to do, and how to stay safe, in different situations. The Year 6 pupils that I spoke to told me how they learn to stay safe when using the internet. They also showed a good understanding of the different forms of bullying. They told me that bullying rarely happens at St Mark’s and that they have confidence in staff to quickly resolve any problems of this kind.

There are many strengths in the early years. Staff provide a well-organised and stimulating learning environment for children, both indoors and outside. There are excellent relationships between staff and parents and carers. Parents value the close interaction they have with school.
