School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
The school is smaller than the average-sized all-through school. It admits 60 pupils each year, although there are almost double this number in Year 10. From Year 5, girls and boys are segregated for lessons, and break- and lunchtime.

As an Islamic voluntary- aided school, priority admission arrangements are in place for pupils practising the Islamic faith.

An interim executive board commenced responsibility for governance of the school in May 2014.

From June 2014, the school has been led by an executive headteacher, originally commissioned through a local teaching school providing support to the school. A permanent headteacher has very recently been appointed and commenced in November 2015.

Until recently, the school has been receiving support to improve leadership and teaching through Calthorpe School, a local teaching school. This support ended in June 2015.

All pupils are from minority ethnic groups and most are of Pakistani heritage with others from a range of backgrounds including Black African and Bangladeshi. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is much higher than the national average.

About two fifths of pupils in the school are supported by pupil premium funding, which is higher than average. This funding is provided by the government for pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals and those who are looked after in public care.

A very small number of pupils in the school have disabilities or special educational needs and this is typically around three or four pupils in each year group.

The school does not make use of any alternative or off-site provision.

The school meets the government's current floor standards for primary and secondary pupils. In primary, this sets the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics. In secondary, the minimum expectations are for attainment and progress in English and mathematics.
