Most pupils are White British.

The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium (which in this school provides additional funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals) is below average.

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

The school has mixed-age classes in Key Stage 2.

There have been several changes of teaching staff since the previous inspection, including the headteacher. A new Chair of Governors was appointed in September 2013.

The school meets the current government floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' progress and attainment by the end of Key Stage 2.
