School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
This school is much larger than the average-sized primary school and the number of pupils is rising.

The school serves pupils from a wide range of ethnic backgrounds. The largest single group is those of White British heritage, although this represents less than one third of the total. Nearly half of all pupils speak English as an additional language.

The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for pupil premium funding is slightly higher than the national average. This is additional government funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals or looked after by the local authority (disadvantaged pupils).

The proportion of pupils identified to receive additional school support for disability or special educational needs is just below average. The proportion with a statement of special educational needs or an education, health and care plan is broadly average.

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

The school provides a breakfast club.

The headteacher started in January 2015, after the previous inspection.
