Information about this school

The school is a much smaller than the average-sized primary school and serves a district of Reading and the surrounding area. The proportion of pupils who are eligible for additional government funding, known as the pupil premium, is much lower than the national average. The proportions of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs and who need extra help are much lower than in other schools nationally. Some of these pupils have moderate learning difficulties. No pupils have statements of special educational needs. A very small minority of pupils join or leave the school during the school year. This minority is much smaller than that found in most other schools. A large majority of pupils are of White British heritage. The school opened in September 2011 as one of the first free schools in the country. It works in partnership with the Schools Trust set up by an education charity. The school currently consists of two classes catering for pupils in Year 3 and Year 4. The headteacher was appointed in April 2011. The school moved into its permanent site in September 2012.
