School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
This is smaller than the average-sized primary school. It has one class for each year group except in Reception, where there are two classes. Early years provision is only in the Reception classes.

Most pupils are of minority ethnic heritage and a majority speak English as an additional language. The largest group in the school are from Other White, largely Eastern European and Israeli, backgrounds.

Pupils of White British and Black African origin are the only other sizeable groups in the school. The proportion of pupils with disabilities and special educational needs is broadly average. Their needs relate mainly to speech language and communication and emotional and behavioural issues.

Around three out of ten pupils are supported by the pupil premium, which is slightly higher than average.

This is additional government funding provided for pupils entitled to free school meals.

The school meets the current government floor standard which sets the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress. The numbers of pupils joining or leaving the school during the course of the school year are higher than are typically the case.

The headteacher and deputy headteacher have joined the school since the previous inspection. In September, an assistant headteacher was appointed.

Six of the eight class teachers were new to the school at the beginning of this school year, including most of the Reception and Key Stage 1 teams.

There is a breakfast and after-school club, which is run by a private provider. It is subject to a separate inspection.
