School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
This school is larger than the average-sized primary school.

The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups is above average. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is broadly average.

The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium is significantly above average. (The pupil premium is additional funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals or looked after by the local authority.) These pupils are referred to in the rest of the report as `disadvantaged'.

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

Significant numbers of pupils join the school from other schools in different year groups.

The school meets the government's current floor standard, which is the minimum expectation for pupils' attainment and progress in English and mathematics by the end of Year 6.

The school sponsors Seymour Road Academy in Clayton, Manchester and is a partner in the Greater Manchester Family of Schools, in the `everyone learning @Teaching School Alliance'.

Briscoe Lane Academy converted to become an academy school on 1 September 2012. When its predecessor school, Briscoe Lane Primary School was last inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to be good overall. The school is led and managed by a Principal and an Executive Principal. The Executive Principal is a Local Leader of Education.
