School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
The school is similar in size to most other primary schools. There is a much higher than average proportion of boys in most year groups. The number on roll has risen significantly since the last inspection. The school is gradually moving towards two classes for each year group. A second Reception class opened in November 2013 and there are now two classes in Year 1 and one class in each of the other year groups. Nursery children join the school in the term of their third birthday and attend part time. Children attend the Reception classes full time.

The large majority of pupils are from minority ethnic groups. At 65%, the proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is more than three times the national average. Some join the school soon after entering the country and many are at an early stage of learning English. The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs is similar to the national average. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils, those eligible for support through the pupil premium funding, is double that found in most other schools. The pupil premium is additional funding provided for those who are known to be eligible for free school meals and those who are looked after by the local authority. The proportion of pupils who join or leave the school at other than the usual times is high when compared to the national average. The school has experienced changes to staffing since the last inspection, including the appointment of a new headteacher in September 2013. A building programme is underway to significantly increase the size of the school building. The school meets 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 governors provide breakfast and after-school clubs for pupils who attend the school.
