School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Covingham Park Primary is larger than the average-sized primary school.

Most pupils are White British. A smaller than average number of pupils is from minority ethnic backgrounds and an even smaller percentage speak English as an additional language.

The proportion of disadvantaged pupils supported through the pupil premium is lower than average. The pupil premium is extra government funding to help the education of pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals and those who are looked after by the local authority.

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

The school has had a turnover of one third of the teaching force since the previous inspection.

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.

Early years provision is full-time in the Reception classes.

The school has an informal partnership with the Dorcan Cluster/Dorcan Academy.

Privately run before- and after-school clubs and an independent pre-school operate on the school site and share some of the school's facilities. They are managed independently and so they were not a part of this inspection.
