School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
The school is larger than the average-sized primary school.

The large majority of pupils are White British. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds is in line with the national average and the proportion speaking English as an additional language is well below average.

The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium, which provides additional funding for children in local authority care and pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, is well below average.

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

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

There have been significant changes in staffing, including to the senior leadership team, over the past year. The previous headteacher retired in July 2013 and the deputy headteacher was appointed in the post of acting headteacher in September 2013. Five new teachers have joined the school at the same time and some of the subject leaders are new to their posts.

The school is a member of the local schools consortium, which includes several primary schools.
