School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Abbey Meads is a larger than average-sized primary school in Swindon. The large majority of pupils are of White British background. A very small minority of pupils use English as an additional language or are at the early stages of learning English. Children in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) are taught in two Reception classes. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported at school action is below average. The proportion of pupils supported at school action plus, or with a statement of special educational needs, is below average. The proportion of pupils eligible for the pupil premium funding is average. This is additional government funding provided to schools to support pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals or those in local authority care.

The school manages a breakfast and after-school club. The governing body manages Butterflies Children's Centre, located on the school site. The children's centre was not inspected as part of this inspection. A much higher than average number of pupils join or leave the school other than at the normal times. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which sets the minimum expectations for pupils' standards and progress.
