School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Beck Row Primary School is smaller than the average-sized primary school. Most of the children are from White British or Other White backgrounds. Only a small number of these children stay at the school for key stage 1 and key stage 2. A small number of pupils come from families of Gypsy/Roma or Traveller heritage; this proportion is above the national average.

Since September 2015, just under a half of all pupils who have attended the school have arrived or left during the year. The proportion of pupils for whom the school receives the pupil premium, which is additional funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and children looked after, is just below the national average.

The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities is below average. There are no pupils who have a statement of educational need or an education, health and care plan.

The school did not meet the government's floor standards in 2015. These are the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment in reading, writing and mathematics by the end of Year 6.

In December 2015, the school was issued with a pre-warning notice by the local authority. In May 2016, the Department for Education issued the governing body with a warning notice to improve.

A consultant headteacher has provided leadership support during the absence of the substantive headteacher. At the time of the inspection, the substantive headteacher had just returned to her position.
