OFSTED Inspection Report

OFSTED INSPECTION of St Mark’s CE Primary School

15 & 16 January 2019


As you all know, St Mark’s CE Primary School was recently inspected by a team of three OFSTED Inspectors on Tuesday 15th and Wednesday 16th January 2019. I am writing to inform you that we have received our full and final OFSTED Inspection Report and it is now available for you to view on our school website.


From the website home page, please go into 'Key Information' and then into  the 'OFSTED Reports' area where you will find the

OFSTED Inspection Report January 2019.


The Inspection process was very rigorous but very fair throughout and the report gives a very accurate view of our school and the work that we do. There are always things that we could be doing better and areas that we need to improve on; we know that ourselves and we continually to strive to be the best that we can possibly be as a school serving the community of Pensnett. Nevertheless, the report also clearly acknowledges all the hard work of our amazing staff team and appropriately recognises all that we do well here at St Mark’s for your children. There are lots of examples of our work that we can celebrate and be proud of, as you will see.


As a school, we would like to thank all our families for their continued support of their children and the work of the school. If you would like a personal paper copy of the full OFSTED report, please kindly make your request with the school office and a copy will be made available to you.
