Information about this school

This is a much larger than average sized primary school. Children in the Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 are taught in two classes. In Year 3, pupils who have attended a separate infant school join this school.

In Key Stage 2, pupils are taught in three classes in each year. For mathematics pupils are taught in four classes in each year group when they are in Years 5 and 6. Almost all pupils are of White British heritage.

The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs supported through school action is below average. The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is below average. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium, which is additional funding for looked after children, pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and children from service families, is low.

The new headteacher took up her role in January 2014. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress. There is a nursery joined to the school, which will be inspected separately.
