Description of the school

The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds in this average sized school has risen to above average. The proportion of pupils with a mother tongue other than English has also risen, to an average level, although very few are at an early stage of learning English. Free school meal eligibility remains low and the proportion of pupils who need help with their learning is below average. Specific learning difficulties, such as dyslexia, are identified as the main reasons for higher levels of need. Provision for children in the Early Years Foundation Stage is through a part-time Nursery and a Reception class. The school has gained Investors in People accreditation on three occasions and was awarded the Active Mark this year.
