School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
The school is much larger than the average-sized primary school.

The proportion of pupils eligible for pupil premium funding is lower than usual. This is additional funding provided by the government to support disadvantaged pupils known to be eligible for free school meals or who are looked after by the local authority. The proportion of pupils who are from minority ethnic groups or who speak English as an additional language is much lower than average.

There is provision for children in the early years in three Reception classes. Most children attend full time.

The school meets the government's current floor standards that set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in English and mathematics.

There have been significant changes to the teaching team since the previous inspection.
