School Description by Ofsted

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

The great majority of pupils are of White British heritage.

The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium, which is additional funding provided by the government for children in local authority care, pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and children with a parent in the armed services, is below the national average.

The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs supported by school action, and the proportion supported by school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs, are both below average.

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

Children in Reception (the Early Years Foundation Stage) are taught in two classes, in one alongside Year 1 pupils, and in the other alongside pupils from Years 1 and 2. There is one class comprising Year 2 pupils. There are two classes comprising both Years 3 and 4 pupils and two classes comprising both Year 5 and Year 6 pupils.

The school operates both before-school and after-school clubs.

The headteacher joined the school in September 2012 and there were other changes to the senior leadership team at that time.

The school has Green Flag Eco-School status and is a UNICEF Rights Respecting School.
