School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
This is a smaller than average-sized primary school. The proportion of pupils supported through school action is triple the national average.

The proportion of pupils supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is just below average.

The school receives additional funding through the pupil premium for the majority of its pupils.

The pupil premium is additional funding for those pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals, children from service families and those children that are looked after by the local authority.

The school has a very small proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups, and very few speak English as an additional language.

The school meets the government's current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics by the end of Year 6.

Since the previous inspection the school has been reorganised and has a new headteacher and deputy headteacher as well as a new middle management tier. A number of new teachers have been employed, including a newly qualified teacher. Several new governors have been appointed The school runs a breakfast club and a range of after-school activities. A Children's Centre operates from the site; this is subject to a separate inspection.
