Description of the school

This is a larger than average size primary school. The proportion of pupils entitled to free school meals is lower than average. A below average number of pupils have learning difficulties or disabilities and a below average number have a statement of special educational need. About a quarter of the pupils are from minority ethnic families with a small number for whom English is an additional language.
