School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
This is a primary academy with a Nursery, situated close to Brompton Barracks, the base for the Royal Engineers. It is larger than most primary schools. The Nursery is full time but children attend part time.

The proportion of pupils eligible for the pupil premium (additional funding for pupils in local authority care, those known to be eligible for free school meals and pupils from service families) is higher than average.

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

The academy manages a Sure Start children's centre. This was not part of this inspection.

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

Most pupils are of White British origin with a slightly lower than average proportion from minority ethnic backgrounds.

A much higher proportion of pupils join the academy at times other than in the Nursery or Reception class. Approximately 40% of pupils join the academy at different times of the year. Approximately one third of pupils are from armed forces families.

On 1 October 2014 the school became an academy. When the predecessor school, also called Brompton- Westbrook Primary School, was last inspected by Ofsted in November 2012, it was judged to be good. The academy's board of trustees was formed on 1 October 2014 and replaced the school's governing body. The headteacher was promoted to the post of acting executive headteacher in June 2013. She is a local leader of education who is currently providing support to Byron Primary School. At the same time, the assistant headteacher was promoted to acting head of school. Significant building work is in progress at the academy.
