School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
The school is similar in size to the average primary school. Currently, there are eight classes in the school ­ two Reception classes, three in Key Stage 1 and three in Key Stage 2. Nursery-aged children join the others in the Reception classes. Nursery -aged children attend on a part time basis.

The majority of the Nursery children transfer to the Reception classes where they are joined by others.

Some have attended other settings; others have not. The majority of the pupils come from minority ethnic backgrounds. The proportion of pupils from a White British background is considerably smaller than that found in most schools. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is much higher than average. Few are at the early stages of learning English. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs at school action level is above average. The proportion identified with a statement of special educational needs is average. (The onsite special educational needs unit, for pupils with a diagnosis of autistic spectrum condition, moved to a nearby school in September 2014.) The proportion of disadvantaged pupils supported through the pupil premium is broadly average. This is additional government funding for pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals, and those who are looked after.

The headteacher was appointed in April 2012, following several changes in leadership.
