School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
The school is much larger than the average-sized primary school and is organised on two separate sites on the opposite sides of a main road. One site accommodates the early years provision and key stage 1 while the other site accommodates key stage 2.

The school provides full-time early years provision in three Reception classes. Since September 2015, the governing body have also been responsible for the on-site Nursery that provides separate part-time provision for two- and three-year olds. This includes funded provision for disadvantaged two-year-olds.

About one third of the pupils on roll are eligible for the pupil premium (additional government funding for disadvantaged pupils), which is more than the national average.

The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs or disability is above that found in primary schools nationally.

The vast majority of pupils are of White British heritage. One in 10 pupils has a first language other than English.

The school meets the current government floor standards which set out the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.

The headteacher chairs a group of 10 primary schools that work together as the `South Bank Consortium'.
