Information about this school
Bishop Lonsdale Church of England VC Primary School is smaller than most other primary schools. It is situated in a small market town near Stafford. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups is much lower than in most other schools. Very few pupils speak English as an additional language. The proportion of pupils eligible for the pupil premium, additional funding given to the school to support specific groups of pupils, is smaller than in most other schools. A few pupils are looked after or known to be eligible for free school meals and none have parents in the armed forces.

The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is below average. The proportion of pupils supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is also below average. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in English and mathematics.

The school has close links with groups in the town who provide care before and after school.

The school currently uses two buildings which are separated by a main road. Pupils are always supervised to cross this. Building work to accommodate the whole school on one side of the road was in progress during the inspection.
