School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Balgowan is an above average-sized primary school. It became an academy school managed by the Balgowan Academy Trust in August 2011. When the predecessor school, Balgowan Primary School, was last inspected by Ofsted it was judged to be good.

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

The proportion of pupils for whom the school receives additional funding (the pupil premium) is low. This is additional funding provided by the government to support pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, children who are looked after and the children of service families. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups is below average. The proportion who speak English as an additional language is also below average. The school does not manage the on-site after-school club, so it was not included in this inspection. The latest report for the after-school club can be found on the Ofsted website.

The school does not use any alternative provision (lessons that take place regularly away from school). The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.
