School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
This school is an average-sized primary school.

Most pupils are from White British backgrounds. There are an average number of pupils from many different minority ethnic backgrounds. The number of pupils who speak English as an additional language is well-above average. The proportion of pupils supported at school action is below average. The proportion of pupils supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is above average.

The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for pupil premium is well-above average. Pupil premium is additional funding allocated for pupils in the care of the local authority, those known to be eligible for free school meals or whose parents are in the armed services.

The proportion of pupils who start the school other than in Nursery class and those who leave the school before Year 6 is very high. The cohort sizes are much smaller in Key Stage 2 than in Key Stage 1. This results in relatively small cohorts of pupils taking national tests at the end of Key Stage 2.

The school has an Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 Assessment Resource Centre, which admits pupils from across the city of Newcastle.

The school meets the government's current minimum floor standard, which sets the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.

A new deputy headteacher was appointed in September 2013.

The school has provision for 0 to 3-year-olds. This facility was not part of this inspection.
