School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
This junior school is a similar size to the average-sized primary school. The school offers specially resourced provision, known as `The Phoenix Suite', for pupils with autistic spectrum disorder. Currently, there are 17 pupils in the resource. In addition the school has enhanced resource provision for a further 15 pupils with autistic spectrum disorder. The school shares the expertise of the Phoenix Suite and the inclusion managers with other schools.

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

Overall half of the pupils at the school have autism, or speech and language disorders. The proportion of pupils for whom the school receives the pupil premium grant (additional government funding for disadvantaged pupils) is higher than average. The school did not meet the government's floor standards in 2014; these are minimum expectations, set by the government for pupils' attainment and progress.
