School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
This is a smaller than average-sized primary school.

Most pupils are of White British heritage.

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

The proportion of pupils eligible for the pupil premium funding is above average. (The pupil premium is additional funding for those pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals, come from armed forces families and those who are looked after by the local authority.) The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' learning and progress.

The number on roll has risen significantly since the previous inspection. The proportion of pupils who join the school at other than the usual times is greater than that found nationally.

The headteacher supports other schools as a Local Leader in Education and the school has operated as a `Lead Literacy School' for a local university over the past four years.
