School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Marks Gate is a larger than average-sized primary school. Nearly half of the pupils are from a White British heritage. Other pupils are from a variety of other ethnic heritages, including Black African.

The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is much higher than average. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium, which is additional funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, those from forces families and those looked after, is well above average.

The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs supported through school action is well above average. The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is broadly average.

The proportion of pupils who join or leave the school, other than at the usual times, is average.

The school hosts a breakfast club managed by the governing body. In addition, some after- school clubs are provided by external organisations. These are not managed by the governing body and were not part of this inspection.

The school is part of a hard federation with Marks Gate Infant School. The executive headteacher of Marks Gate Junior School is also the executive headteacher of the infant school. The school meets the government's current floor standards for Year 6, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in English and mathematics.
