School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
The school is larger than an average-sized primary school.

The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium is well below average. There are too few pupils to report on at the end of Key Stage 2. The pupil premium is additional funding for those pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals and children looked after by the local authority.

The early years provision consists of a part-time morning and afternoon Nursery class and two full-time classes in Reception.

The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is well below average.

The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in English and mathematics by the end of Year 6.

Since the previous inspection there have been a number of changes in teaching staff including the restructuring of the leadership team. The previous headteacher retired at the end of the summer term in 2013. The substantive headteacher was appointed in January 2014 and was supported by a temporary assistant headteacher until September 2014 when the new leadership team, including the deputy headteacher were appointed. A breakfast and an after-school club operate on site. These are not managed by the school and were not part of this inspection.
