School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
The school is much larger than the average-sized primary school. A significant proportion of pupils travel to the school from beyond its normal catchment area. It has a Nursery class for five mornings each week in its own separate accommodation. The three Reception classes share a spacious indoor area divided into zones and the recently improved outdoor area. There are three single-age classes in each year from Year 1 to 6.

Numbers in school are fairly static. Most pupils are White British. One in five pupils is from a range of minority ethnic backgrounds, the largest group being of Indian origins. One in ten of all pupils are learning English as an additional language. The proportion of pupils supported by additional government funding through the pupil premium is about half the national average. In this school, the pupil premium almost entirely applies to pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals.

The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is broadly average. The proportion who are supported at school action plus or who have a statement of special educational needs is just below average.

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

A new headteacher started at the beginning of this term. The school funds sports coaches and has a history of successful sporting achievements for its teams and individual pupils.
