School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
This school is an average-sized primary school.

Most pupils attending the school are of White British heritage.

The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs supported through school action is well above the national average. The proportion supported by school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is also well above average.

The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium (which provides additional funding for children in local authority care, children from service families and those known to be eligible for free school meals) is well above that found nationally.

The children in the Early Years Foundation Stage are accommodated in a designated Early Years Foundation Stage Unit, which contains Nursery and Reception classes. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set out the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in English and mathematics.
