School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Forest Fields Primary is larger than the average-sized primary school. There are two classes in each year group from Nursery to Year 6, apart from the Reception Year and Year 1. The Early Years Foundation Stage children are taught in a separate Nursery unit and three Reception classes.

Pupils come from a variety of ethnic backgrounds and nine out of ten speak English as an additional language, with an increasing number at an early stage of learning English in every age group.

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

The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium (additional government funding for certain groups ­ in this school pupils known to be eligible for free school meals) is higher than average.

Forest Fields Primary School meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.

In 2013, the governors appointed a new head of Years 5 and 6 and one new teacher started at the school in February, and one in September.

Major building work took place in the school over the previous year.

There is a breakfast club managed by the governing body.
