School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Acre Hall Primary School opened as an academy on 1st July 2013. It is part of The Dunham Trust which consists of two academies, Acre Hall and Elmridge Primary School. There is an executive headteacher who provides leadership to both academies and, in addition, Acre Hall Primary School has a head of school who is responsible for the work of the academy.

The executive headteacher is a national leader of education (NLE) and she provides support to Acre Hall Primary School to improve the quality of teaching and to raise standards in particular. Acre Hall Primary School is smaller than most primary schools.

The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs is above the national average.

Within the academy, there is specially resourced provision comprising three small specialist classes catering for 30 pupils aged from five to 11, each with a statement of special educational needs. The provision's specialism is for pupils with complex needs and social, communication difficulties. In addition, there is a small number of pupils in the mainstream provision within the academy who have a statement of special educational needs.

Most pupils are of White British heritage and very few pupils speak English as an additional language.

The proportion of disadvantaged pupils is above the national average. These are pupils supported through pupil premium funding, which is additional funding for those pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals and those children who are looked after by the local authority.

Children in the early years attend full-time provision in the Reception class and part-time provision in the Nursery class.

In 2014, the academy did not meet the government's current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics by the end of Year 6. The governing body provides a breakfast club for pupils who attend the school.

Urmston Children's Centre is located on the Acre Hall Primary School site but is not managed by the academy. It is inspected separately and the report is available on the Ofsted website.
