Description of the school

Belleville is one of the largest primary schools in the country. It serves a mixed and diverse community. Around half its pupils are of White British heritage and the other half from a wide range of ethnic backgrounds. There is a growing and significant French population. About one in five pupils speaks English as an additional language, which is higher than average. Relatively few are at the early stages of learning English. The school has a small Nursery and accounts for only about one in three pupils entering the Reception year. On entry to the Reception year children’s skills and understanding are a little above average. The school was awarded a Gold Artsmark in March 2007.
