The school is much larger than an average-sized primary school. The number of pupils on roll has
increased since the previous inspection, as has the number of staff.
The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is above average. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils, those supported by the pupil premium funding, is well above the
national average. The pupil premium is additional government funding to support pupils known to be
eligible for free school meals and children who are looked after by the local authority.
The majority of pupils are White British. A small proportion of pupils are from minority ethnic families. A higher proportion of pupils than usual are from Gypsy Roma families. Children attend the nursery on a part-time basis. A much higher proportion of pupils than usual do not enter the school in the early years. The school meets the current government's floor standard, which is the minimum expectation for pupils'
attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics by the end of Year 6.
The school manages `The Learning Centre' on behalf of the local authority. The centre provides outreach
support for pupils with emotional and social difficulties in up to 58 schools. It opened after the previous inspection.
`Smilers' provides registered childcare on the premises. It is subject to a separate inspection and receives
a separate report which is available on the Ofsted website.
The school runs a daily breakfast club. The school is a National Teaching School. The headteacher is a National Leader of Education and four of
the staff are Specialist Leaders in Education. They provide training programmes and support to other
schools as part of Partners in Learning.
