Key findings

This school provides an outstanding quality of education. A very large number of parents and carers returned the inspection questionnaire and almost all had positive views about every aspect of the school's work.

A typical comments was 'Marston Green is an outstanding school; it gives the children the opportunity to reach their full potential.' Another wrote, 'It has the children's learning at heart and all are treated equally regardless of their cultural background and ability.' The inspection evidence supports these views.

The majority of pupils make outstanding progress in English, mathematics and most other subjects in the curriculum. Their progress is rarely less than good. As a result, t...hey achieve standards that are well above average, and this has been the case consistently for the last five years.

The majority of teaching is outstanding and the remainder is consistently good. Teachers motivate pupils in all subjects by providing interesting practical activities and by setting learning in contexts that excite them. They assess pupils' achievement in detail and use this information to plan lessons that are mostly at the right level of challenge for all groups of pupils.

In a small number of English lessons, the tasks are not challenging enough to help more-able pupils to accelerate their progress from good to outstanding. Pupils enjoy coming to school and their attendance is above average. Their behaviour is excellent and they are very enthusiastic learners.

They feel safe in school. The headteacher and her team of senior and middle leaders are very effective in sustaining and further improving the high quality of teaching across the school. They have a detailed understanding of provision and pupils' outcomes in each classroom and they ensure that every teacher receives exactly the support and training they need to help them raise standards of attainment further.

Information about the school

The school is larger than most junior schools. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals is broadly average, as is the proportion of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is below average.

There have been significant recent changes in staffing and leadership, one result of which is that a quarter of the staff are newly qualified and in their first post. The governing body manages the Ark club on the school premises which provides activities for 79 pupils before and after school. The school exceeds the national floor standard for pupils' attainment and progress.
