School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
This is a larger-than-average-sized primary school, where most pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of pupils eligible for the pupil premium (additional funding from the government for specific groups of students) is much higher than the national average, and makes up just over half of the school's population.

The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs who are supported by school action, school action plus, or by a statement of special educational needs is below the national average.

The school has a separate area, referred to as the `Nurture Room', for some children in Reception to specifically develop their social and communication skills.

The proportion of pupils entering the school during the school year is above average.

No pupils are taught in alternative provision away from the school site.

The school meets the current government floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.
