School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
The school is similar in size to the average-sized primary school and pupils are taught in single age classes. The school is expanding to become a two-form entry primary school by September 2017.

Currently there are two forms in Years 1, 2 and 3 and one form in each of Years 4, 5 and 6.

There is provision in the early years in the two Reception classes. These pupils attend full time.

Most pupils are White British. Other pupils come from a wide range of ethnicities, although very few speak English as an additional language.

The proportion of pupils who are entitled to the pupil premium funding is above average. The number of eligible pupils varies considerably between classes and there were very few in Year 6 in 2014. Pupil premium is additional funding provided by the government to support those pupils who, in this school, are eligible for free school meals or who the local authority looks after.

The proportion of disabled pupils and who have special educational needs is broadly average. The school meets the government's current floor standards. These set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics.

There have been a number of changes to the staff team since the previous inspection. The leadership team has re-structured with the appointment of two new assistant headteachers.

There are two Chairs of the Governing Body who share the responsibility for this role.

School leaders and governors have managed a recent building programme to accommodate the increasing pupil numbers as the school expands.
