Description of the school

The great majority of pupils at this average-sized primary school in Wandsworth come from a wide range of social, ethnic and cultural backgrounds. The proportions of pupils eligible for free school meals, those whose first language is not English, and those from minority ethnic groups are much higher than those found usually. The main ethnic groups are White British and Pakistani. More pupils than normal start and leave the school at times other than usual and this varies significantly between year groups. There are 19 languages spoken by the school community at present. The school provides a good range of extended services including a breakfast club and Family Learning Group. An after school care service is provided by Wandsworth Play Services. Early Years Foundation Stage provision is in a Nursery and a Reception class in a building separate from the main school.
