School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
This is an above-average-sized primary school, with 11 classes.

The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium is well above average. (The pupil premium is additional funding for those pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals, children from service families and those children that are looked after by the local authority.) The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs supported at school action is above average. The proportion supported at school action plus or who have a statement of special educational needs is also above average.

The vast majority of pupils are from White British backgrounds.

A new headteacher has been appointed since the previous inspection, and there have been several other staffing changes. Three teachers joined the school this year.

The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.
