Headteacher’s Welcome

I would like to warmly welcome you to the website of New Marston Primary School in Oxford.

Since arriving at the school earlier this year, I have been struck by the warmth and kindness of the pupils, staff and parents. The first thing that I would like to say is that if you are a potential new parent reading this and are concerned about our previous Ofsted report, then I would like to warmly invite you into the school to meet with myself and our staff and pupils and see and feel for yourself what kind of school we are.

We are based in the Marston area of Oxford and benefit from a unique mix of pupils, whose families come from local areas and from all parts of the world. Adults and children really look after and care for each other here. Academically, our pupils are benefiting from a brand new curriculum from September, with very high expectations built in. We are expecting all of our pupils to thrive academically and personally over the years ahead and will continue to update this website with lots of information over the next few weeks and months, so that families can see what we plan to do, and share in it with us.

We are proud that we are part of the River Learning Trust. Further support comes from the new Governing Body, who are similarly relentless in their approach to school improvement.

New Marston is committed to providing an exciting and safe environment where everyone feels valued, loves learning and develops the skills to learn for life.

Thank you for taking the time to visit us on-line and if you would like to visit us anytime please call 01865 761560 to arrange a time and ask to speak to me.
