School Description by Ofsted

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

The proportion of pupils with special educational needs or disability is well below average.

The proportion of disadvantaged pupils, those supported by the pupil premium funding, is well above the national average. The pupil premium funding is additional government funding to support those pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals and those who are looked after by the local authority.

There were no looked after pupils at the time of the inspection.

Almost all pupils are of White British heritage and a very small proportion 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 English and mathematics.

The headteacher left in April 2015 and a local leader of education from Summerfields Primary School was interim headteacher until December 2015. The current deputy is now acting headteacher and has the support of the local leader of education one day a week.

The new Chair of the Governing Body took the position in November 2015.

A before- and after-school club operates on the site. The school's governing body manages this.
