Description of the school

This is a much larger-than-average infant school with Early Years Foundation Stage provision for one hundred and four children in Nursery and one hundred and twenty children in Reception. Although the large majority of pupils are White British, the proportion of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds is above average. Black African and Asian Indian are the largest groups. The proportion of pupils learning English as an additional language is below the national figure and few are at an early stage of learning English. The proportion of pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities is lower than average. The majority of these pupils need help to settle to their work, or have speech and language difficulties. The school works closely with the junior school that shares the same site.
