School Description by Ofsted

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

The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported at school action is above average. The proportion supported at school action plus or through a statement of special educational needs is also above average.

An above-average proportion of pupils join the school partway through their primary education.

Many of these pupils are disabled or have special educational needs, often emotional and behavioural difficulties.

No pupils are currently educated in alternative provision away from the school site.

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

The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium is well above average. This extra funding is for particular groups, including those known to be eligible for free school meals. Three members of the teaching staff have joined the school since the last inspection. Most of them started their teaching career at Beckers Green.

The governors manage a daily breakfast club on the school site. The school has established links with the local housing association, and shares an attendance officer with five local schools.
