School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
The number of pupils in the secondary phase of the school is currently below the national average. The school is building larger year groups in key stage 3, which will filter through to key stage 4 in the next two years: at this stage, given current numbers, this part of the school will be slightly larger than most secondary schools.

There are two classes in each year of the primary phase. At present there are only pupils in the early years, and Years 1, 2 and 3. When all year groups are populated in the primary phase, this part of the school will be larger than an average primary school.

The school is part of the Sir John Lawes Academies Trust.

An above-average proportion of pupils are from minority ethnic groups or pupils who speak English as an additional language. The proportion of pupils eligible for support from the pupil premium is average. This additional government funding is for children looked after and pupils known to be eligible for free school meals.

The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs or disability is above average.

The school met the government's current floor targets in 2015 for primary and secondary pupils. These express the minimum expectations for what pupils should achieve by the end of their time in the school.
