School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Beechwood Primary School is slightly larger than the average-sized primary school. The number of children currently entering the Reception class each year means that some classes through the school contain mixed-age ranges.

The proportion of pupils who are known to be eligible for the pupil premium, which is extra funding provided to support pupils eligible for free school meals or in the care of the local authority, is below the national average.

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

Most pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups is average with the proportion of Indian pupils being above the national average. The number of pupils at early stages of learning to speak English as an additional language is below average.

The school runs a breakfast club and a range of after-school clubs paid for by parents and carers. The school does not use alternative provision.

Pupils have the option to sit entrance exams to selective local secondary schools.

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