Markyate Village School was inspected by Ofsted on the 5th and 6th December 2019. The links to the Inspection Report and the Letter from the Head teacher and Chair of Governors are below, together with several quotes from the Report.
Pupils enjoy the topics they study. They talk confidently about their recent learning. For example, older pupils were enthusiastic about writing a manifesto showing they understand democracy and enjoy having various debates.
Pupils demonstrate their good behaviour through their ‘proud walking’ in corridors, and their ‘legendary lining up’. In lessons, they listen carefully to adults and to each other. They know that staff will listen carefully if they are worried about anything, including any concerns about bullying.
The teaching of reading is particularly strong. Teachers encourage a love of reading.
PSHE is a particular strength of the school. High-quality work is seen through-out the school.
Pupils benefit from a range of wider opportunities which complement their learning, such as visits linked to their curriculum learning.
