School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
This is an average-sized junior school.

The proportion of pupils who have special education needs or disability is in line with the national average.

No national curriculum test results are available for Year 6 pupils for 2015. It is not possible to say if the school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress by the end of Year 6.

The proportion of pupils who are supported by the pupil premium (additional funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals or in care) is much higher than the national average. The majority of pupils are of White British heritage. A range of minority ethnic groups is represented including those from African and `Any other White' backgrounds.

A quarter of pupils have English as an additional language. This is above the national average.

The deputy headteacher was appointed as the substantive headteacher in April 2016. He was the acting headteacher between September 2015 and April 2016.

There is an executive headteacher for the school provided by the trust. The school provides a daily breakfast club.

The school's website meets the requirements for the publication of specific information.
