Information about this school

This is a larger-than-average primary school.

The school converted to academy status in August 2012. When Ofsted last inspected its predecessor school, of the same name, in February 2009, it was judged to be good. The very large majority of pupils are of White British heritage.

The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups is below average. Very few pupils speak English as an additional language. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported at school action is below average.

The proportion who are supported at school action plus, or with a statement of special educational needs, is above average. The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium (additional government funding to assist certain groups, which in this school applies to pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals) is well below average. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum national expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.
