School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
This is larger than the average-sized primary academy.

An above-average proportion of pupils are eligible for the pupil premium. (The pupil premium provides additional funding for pupils in local authority care and those known to be eligible for free school meals.) The proportion of pupils with special educational needs and supported through school action is below average.

The proportion of pupils supported through school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is above average.

Most pupils are from White British backgrounds.

In 2013, the academy met the government's current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.

The academy is part of the Inspire Multi-Academy Trust, which includes two other local primary academies. All three academies have their own headteacher.

The headteacher from the predecessor school is now the Chief Executive of the Inspire Multi- Academy Trust. The present headteacher has been in post since the academy opened in December 2012. A new deputy headteacher has recently been appointed. When the academy's predecessor school was last inspected by Ofsted in 2008, it was judged to be good.
