School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
This school is larger than the average-sized primary school.

The school has specially resourced provision for pupils with special educational needs, the Marlborough Centre, which is a resourced provision for pupils with autistic spectrum disorder. The specialist resourced provision and the mainstream classes are each led by heads of school under the overall direction of an executive headteacher. At present, 65 pupils attend the specialist resourced provision from Reception to Year 6. All have a statement of special educational needs and many have increasingly complex needs. Typically, pupils in the specialist resourced provision have much lower starting points than other pupils and their expected rate of progress differs from those in the mainstream classes. However, due to the specialist resourced provision being registered with the mainstream classes as a single school establishment, the attainment and progress of pupils in the specialist resourced provision are aggregated with that of pupils in the mainstream school. As a result, published information shows that, in 2015, the school did not meet the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics at the end of Year 6 in mainstream primary schools.

The large majority of pupils are White British.

The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is well above average.

The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium (additional government funding given to those pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and children who are looked after by the local authority) is average.

Children in the early years attend full-time provision in the Reception.

There have been extensive staff changes since the last inspection.
