School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Frederick Bird Primary School is much larger than most primary schools. It is expanding from a three-form to a four-form entry school to provide 840 places for pupils by September 2018. A new building extension is due to open its doors in July 2014.

Most pupils come from minority ethnic backgrounds. A few are of White British heritage. Four in every five speak English as an additional language. This is much higher than is found in the majority of schools.

A well-above-average proportion of pupils are eligible for the pupil premium, which provides additional funding to the school. The funding is based on, for example, the number of children at the school in local authority care and those known to be eligible for free school meals.

The percentage of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs who are supported by school action is well-above-average, as is the proportion of pupils supported by school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs.

The number of pupils joining and leaving the school at different times of the year is well-above- average.

The school meets the current government floor standard, which sets the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.

Five new teachers have joined the staff since September 2013. All are at an early stage of their teaching career.

A breakfast club, managed by the governing body, operates on the school site.

As a National Teaching School, this school takes a leading role in the training and professional development of teachers, support staff and headteachers. It also supports other schools in improving teaching and learning.
