School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
The school is much larger than the average sized primary school. The very large majority of pupils are from minority ethnic backgrounds, mainly of Bangladeshi and Pakistani heritage, and speak English as an additional language. The proportion of pupils supported through school action is decreasing and is now broadly average. The proportion of pupils supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is below average. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium funding is high compared to the national average. (The pupil premium is additional government funding provided for children that are looked after, those from armed services families and pupils known to be eligible for free school meals.) The proportion of pupils joining the school at other than the normal time in the school year is rising and is now above average. A daily breakfast club is provided which is managed by the governing body. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress. The school has experienced instability in staffing since the previous inspection. This includes a number of staff taking maternity leave and changes to the senior leadership team.
