School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
The school is much larger than most primary schools.

Almost all pupils are from a wide range of minority ethnic backgrounds. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is high. Many are at the early stages of learning English.

The school receives pupil premium funding for an above-average proportion of the pupils. This is extra government funding given to schools to support pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, those in local authority care and children with a parent in the armed services.

The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is broadly average but falling. The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is above average and rising. More pupils than in most other primary schools join or leave part-way through their primary education.

The school has experienced considerable staffing changes since its last inspection. The headteacher was appointed in September 2013 following a period when the school was led by an interim headteacher. Most other leaders are new in post and a large number of teachers and support staff have been appointed since the headteacher's arrival. The school's governing body was replaced in June 2013 by an Interim Executive Board.

The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.
