Main findings

  • New Marske is slightly larger than the average-sized primary school. Almost all the pupils are of White British heritage. A very small number are from other ethnic groups.
  • The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals is below the national average as is the number of pupils known to be eligible for additional pupil premium funding.
  • A below average proportion of pupils is supported at school action or has a statement of special educational needs. The number of pupils at school action plus is higher than that found nationally.
  • The school meets the current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils attainment and progress.
  • Since the previous inspection report there have been significant changes in staffing, in addition to the appointment of a deputy headteacher and Early Years Foundation Stage coordinator.

  • Pupils behaviour is exemplary. Pupils say that they look after each other and that they feel safe at school.
  • The additional support for the small number of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs is well focused so that these pupils make good progress.
  • Pupils spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is promoted well through a wide range of opportunities.
  • Teachers have created a bright and attractive learning environment to encourage learning.
  • Attendance is above average.
