Description of the school

This larger than average primary school serves an area containing significant deprivation, and the proportion of pupils eligible for free school meals is well above average. Pupils are drawn from a wide range of ethnic backgrounds. Over half of the pupils are at an early stage of learning to speak English. Almost a third are from refugee families or those seeking asylum. A larger than usual proportion of pupils join or leave the school at other than the usual point of entry. An above average proportion of pupils have been identified with learning difficulties or disabilities, although the percentage with a statement of special educational needs is similar to that in most schools. The school has the Gold Artsmark, Activemark, Healthy Schools and Sustainable Travel awards and the Basic Skills Agency Quality Mark.
