School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
This is a much larger than average-sized primary school with more boys than girls.

A very small minority of pupils is White British. Most pupils are from a diverse range of minority ethnic backgrounds, although the largest group is Asian or Asian British. The proportions that speak English as an additional language are well-above average. However, other than children in the Early Years Foundation Stage, a few are at an early stage of learning to speak English.

The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium is above average. (The pupil premium is additional funding for those pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals, children from service families and those children that are looked after.) The proportion of pupils supported through school action is above average. The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is also above average. The school also operates a specialist unit for 12 hearing-impaired pupils. Movement of pupils in and out of the school at times other than is normal is above average.

The school meets the government's current floor standards which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress. There has been a significant number of staffing changes over the last two years, including the appointment of the new headteacher in September 2012.
