School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Butts is slightly smaller than the average-sized primary school. Almost three quarters of pupils are of minority ethnic, mainly Pakistani, heritage. Over half of pupils speak English as an additional language.

A high proportion of the pupils ­ around half - are disadvantaged pupils who are supported through the pupil premium (additional funding provided by the government for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and children looked after by the local authority). The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is below average.

No pupils attend alternative provision.

The school meets the government's floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.

After the school was placed in special measures following its last inspection in May 2013, it received interim leadership support from the headteacher and deputy headteacher of Alumwell Junior School nearby. Following the resignation of the previous headteacher in February 2014, the governing body sought to formally federate with Alumwell Junior. Federation was ratified in May 2014, and the two schools now have a single governing body. Alumwell's headteacher is now also executive headteacher of the federation. The former Alumwell deputy headteacher, who provided interim support, was appointed as substantive headteacher of Butts in May 2014.
