School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Heron Park Primary Academy is a larger-than-average-sized primary school.

Children can start at the Heron Park Nursery once they are two years of age. The nursery, which is on the same site, has been incorporated into the school since the last inspection.

The academy opened in September 2012 and is sponsored by, and is part of, the Aurora Academies Trust. The trust operates four academies in East Sussex. The executive headteacher of the school has been responsible for three of the academies since April 2013. In addition, the head of school has been in post since February 2014, but held an interim position at the time of the last inspection.

The school receives pupil premium funding for nearly half of all pupils, which is well above the national average. Pupil premium is additional funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and those looked after by the local authority. The proportion of pupils with special educational needs or disability supported by the school is well above average. The proportion of pupils with a statement of special educational need or an education, health and care plan is twice the national average.

The school did not meet the government floor standards in 2015, which are the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics by the end of Year 6. A higher than average number of pupils start school at different times of the school year. As a result class groups change constantly.
