Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Pupils thrive in this happy school, which one parent or carer described as a 'gem'. They make good progress in all years and reach standards that are above average in reading, writing and mathematics by the end of Year 2.

Pupils behave extremely well in lessons and around the school. They enjoy learning, feel safe and are respectful and courteous towards each other and to adults. The quality of teaching is consistently good and some is outstanding.

Teachers are enthusiastic and make learning fun for pupils. They give pupils regular, helpful written feedback on their work. Relationships are a strength and create an atmosphere where pupils... feel confident enough to answer and ask questions in lessons.

Teachers encourage and foster pupils' curiosity and learning across a rich and relevant range of subjects, enhanced by after-school clubs, activities and trips. Pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is promoted well. Staff and governors are committed to the school and to the best interests of the children.

Staff work effectively as a team and share responsibilities well. With local authority support, leaders have developed a good system for assessing and tracking pupils' progress. Parents and carers are very supportive of the school and believe that it makes a valuable contribution to the local community.

Parents and carers are kept well informed about their children's progress. It is not yet an outstanding school because: The outdoor area does not include a wide enough variety of activities for nursery and reception children to choose from. Assessment does not involve the children enough in evaluating their own or others' learning or in responding to teachers' detailed next steps comments in books.

Information about this school

Marsworth Church of England Infant School is a much smaller than average village school on the outskirts of Tring. The number of pupils on roll has decreased over the past five years. There are two classes: one for four- to five-year-olds and the second for pupils in Years 1 and 2, aged five to seven years.

Children start school in the term after their fourth birthday. All of the pupils are of White British heritage and none speak English as an additional language. A very small number of pupils receive support through school action because of their special educational needs; the proportion is much lower than average.

There are no disabled pupils and none who receive extra support through school action plus or who have a statement of special educational needs. At present, no pupils are eligible for the pupil premium (additional government funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, looked after children and the children of service families). There was one pupil eligible for pupil premium funding last year.
