Description of the school

This larger than average size infant school serves a locality where the socio-economic characteristics are well above average. A low proportion of pupils are eligible for free school meals. The proportion of pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities is very low, although the number with a statement of special educational need is broadly average. Almost all pupils have a White British heritage and none requires support for English as an additional language. The school works closely in federation with the neighbouring junior school.
