Description of the school

The school is situated in an area of significant social deprivation. Attainment on entry to the Nursery is well below expectations for the age of the children. There is a very high proportion of pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities. The school has reduced in size since its last inspection by the equivalent of three classes. There is a high rate of mobility as pupils join and leave the school at different points during the year. The school offers extended services to the local community which include a Breakfast Club, Sure Start Library and Baby Bounce. The school has achieved a number of national awards, including Investors in People, Healthy School status, Early Years Naacemark (ICT), the ICT Mark, Eco School Silver Award and Active Mark Gold. There are Leading Teachers for literacy, ICT and Healthy Schools. The school is recognised by the Local Authority as a centre of excellence for transition from the Foundation Stage to Year 1. No Nursery children were in school at the time of the inspection and Reception children had just started their staged programme of entry.
