School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Alban City School is smaller than the average-sized primary school. It opened in September 2012, having registered with the Department for Education as a non-maintained free-school academy to take a maximum of 420 pupils.

The school currently has pupils in Reception and Year 1. It will accept pupils into Year 2 from September 2014, building by one year group a year until it has classes from Reception to Year 6 by September 2018.

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

The proportion of pupils supported through the pupil premium is well below the national average and represents only a very small number of pupils. The pupil premium is additional funding for specific groups of pupils such as those known to be eligible for free school meals and children in local authority care.

The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups is below average.

The proportion of pupils who speak a first language other than English is above average. Pupils speak 19 different home languages. A small but increasing number are at the early stages of learning English.

There is on-site pre-school provision. This is not managed by the governing body and was inspected separately in December 2013.
