Ofsted Inspection Rating Outstanding
This inspection rating relates to a predecessor school. When a school, converts to an academy, is taken over or closes and reopens as a new school a formal link is created between the new school and the old school, by the Department for Education. Where the new school has not yet been inspected, we show the inspection history of the predecessor school, as we believe it still has significance.

Description of the school

The school is a larger than an average-sized primary school. It draws its pupils from a very wide area, some having long daily journeys in order to attend the school. Most pupils are from White British backgrounds. The percentage of pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities is above average and the proportion with a statement of special educational need is well above average. An above average number of pupils join the school during the school year other than at the normal time, particularly in Years 3 to 6. These include a significant number of pupils who have been excluded from other schools. Key for inspection grades Grade 1 Outstanding Grade 2 Good Grade 3 Satisfactory Grade 4 Inadequate
