School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
The school is much smaller than the average-sized primary school. Few pupils live in the village and so most travel from a wide area. The school is oversubscribed, and at least three children apply for each place every year. The school grounds, with blue tractor, adventure play equipment and field, are larger than usually found in this size of school. There are mixed-age groups in the three classes. In the morning, pupils are grouped into four classes. The Reception-age children are in a class with Year 1 pupils.

The village has a research campus and the mobility of the workforce means that more pupils than usual join or leave the school during each school year. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds is above average. Almost all are fluent in English.

The proportion of pupils supported by additional government funding through the pupil premium is low. In this school, it mostly applies to pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals.

The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is average. The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is well above average, but the number of pupils is small. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.

There is an after-school club during term time which is managed independently of the school. It is registered with Ofsted and will be inspected separately. The headteacher joined the school in September 2012.
