School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
This school is average in size when compared with other primary schools.

Although the large majority of pupils speak English as their first language, it is an additional language for just over a quarter of the pupils at the school. This figure is above average.

A minority of the pupils (just under half) are of White British and Other White heritage backgrounds. A small minority (around a quarter) are from Asian or Asian British backgrounds. There are a few (around 10%) pupils from both Mixed and Black or Black British heritage backgrounds. A few come from various other ethnic groups.

There are currently two Reception Year and two Year 1 classes; children attending the Reception classes do so full-time. There is one class in each of Years 2 to 6.

At some 66%, the proportion of pupils for whom the school receives the pupil premium is well above average. This is additional government funding for pupils currently or previously known to be eligible for free school meals.

The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is above average at about 22%.

Some 3% of the pupils currently at the school have an education and healthcare plan. The school is in the process of implementing the new code of practice for pupils who have special educational needs and is gradually implementing education and healthcare plans for those pupils for whom this is appropriate.

The local authority has delegated the role of school improvement adviser to a National Leader of Education who is a headteacher at a local partner school, Colmore Junior School.

The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for the attainment and progress of pupils by the end of Year 6 in reading, writing and mathematics.
