School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Leagrave Primary School is larger than most primary schools and the large majority of pupils are from minority ethnic backgrounds.

A well-above-average proportion of pupils speak English as an additional language. Many of them are at an early stage of speaking English or speak no English at all when they start the school. A significant proportion of pupils join classes throughout the school part way through their education.

The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium is very high, being double the national average. This is additional funding is for pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals or are looked after by the local authority.

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

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

The school hosts a daily breakfast club.

There were significant changes to the leadership team, teaching staff and governing body in 2013. The current headteacher led the school as interim headteacher from April 2013 until April 2014 when she was appointed substantive headteacher. Several new teachers took up posts in September 2013.

The school took an additional 30 pupils into Reception in September 2011 and 2012 but reverted to two forms of entry in September 2013.
