School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
The school is a much larger than average-sized primary school. The very large majority of pupils are of White British heritage.

The proportion of pupils who are eligible for additional government funding, known as the pupil premium, is twice the national 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 through school action is above average. The proportion of pupils supported through school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is around three times the national average. There is a high turnover of pupils, with an above-average number joining or leaving the school other than at the usual times. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in English and mathematics by the end of Year 6. The school has additional funding for supporting pupils with a statement of special education needs for hearing impairment. During the inspection, three pupils were being funded for this support with one pupil being present.

Waterloo Primary Academy converted to become an academy school in August 2012. When its predecessor school Waterloo Community Primary School was last inspected by Ofsted it was judged to be good. Since September 2013, three additional teachers have been employed in Key Stage 2 to boost support for literacy. In addition, a specialist teacher for mathematics has been employed to give support to the most able mathematicians.
