School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
This is a smaller than the average-sized primary school. Pupils leave the school at the end of Year 4 and attend a middle school. There are six classes and a morning and afternoon Nursery class. Most pupils are from White British backgrounds. The proportion of pupils for whom the school receives the pupil premium is above average. This funding is for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals. The proportion of disabled pupils and those supported through school action is above average.

The proportion of pupils supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is well above average.

Since the previous inspection, there has been a change of half the teaching staff, including a deputy headteacher. The school is awaiting the local authority's imminent decision regarding school reorganisation in the area.
