Description of the school

This is a large primary school with a nursery. About 60% of pupils are of Indian heritage, with substantial minorities from White British and Pakistani backgrounds, and small numbers from a range of other ethnic groups. Relatively few pupils (10%) are identified with learning difficulties or disabilities. Over half the pupils have a first language other than English, most commonly Urdu or Punjabi. Just 16 pupils are identified as being at the early stages of learning English. Pupils’ social circumstances, while varied, are somewhat better than average overall. Children’s attainment when they start school is average or slightly above in most areas, although weaker in speaking and listening skills.
