School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Cestria Primary School is a larger than average-sized primary school. The number of pupils on roll is similar to that during the previous inspection.

The vast majority of pupils are of White British heritage.

Since the previous inspection, a number of teachers and leaders, including the deputy headteacher, have taken up post.

The headteacher and the Chair of the Governing Body were in post at the time of the previous inspection.

The proportion of disadvantaged pupils who are supported by the pupil premium funding is below average. The pupil premium is funding provided for pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals and those who are looked after by the local authority.

The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is above average.

The school meets the government's current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in English and mathematics at the end of Key Stage 2.

Children in Reception attend full time. The school does not have a nursery.
