School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Benhurst is a larger-than-average-sized primary school. The school is growing in size. From September 2014 there will be two classes in each year group. The Early Years Foundation Stage consists of two Reception classes. Most pupils are White British, although the proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups is a little above average. The percentage who speak English as an additional language is also a little higher than in most schools. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is below average. The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is average. The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium is average. This is additional government funding provided for looked-after children and those pupils known to eligible for free school meals. There have been significant staff changes since the previous inspection, including at senior level.

The headteacher took up post in September 2013. Pupils have opportunities to attend before- and after-school clubs but these are privately managed and were not inspected at this time. The inspection report for this provision may be found on the Ofsted website. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.
