School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Burnley Brow Community School is larger than the average-sized primary school. The vast majority of pupils are of Bangladeshi heritage and almost all pupils speak English as an additional language. The overwhelming majority of pupils start school speaking no English. A very small number of pupils are from White British heritage backgrounds. 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 below average.

The proportion of disadvantaged pupils supported by the pupil premium is above the national average.

The pupil premium is additional funding for those pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals and those children who are looked after by the local authority.

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.

Since the previous inspection there have been changes in senior leadership. A new headteacher took up post in January 2014, and a deputy headteacher in May 2014; both were existing members of staff. The early years leader is also new since the previous inspection.

The early years is comprised of a morning and afternoon Nursery and full time Reception classes.
