School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
This is a larger than average-sized primary school. The vast majority of pupils are from White British backgrounds.

The percentage of pupils eligible for the pupil premium funding, which in this school provides additional government funding for those pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, is below the national average.

The proportion of pupils supported at school action is higher than the national average. The proportion of pupils at school action plus and with a statement of special educational needs is below the national average but has increased over the last two years. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set out the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.

The school shares a site with a secondary school and a community building which provides child care and a pre-school provision. These are all managed separately from this school and are inspected separately by Ofsted.

The school has received many awards including the Basic Skills Quality Mark, Investors in People Standard, National Healthy School Award, Activemark and the International School Award at Foundation level. The school is one of the Gateshead's three to seven- year-old `School -Centred Initial Teacher Training' providers. (SCITT) There have been many changes in staffing since the last inspection, including changes within the leadership team.
