Information about this school

Cecil Road Primary and Nursery School is much larger than the average-sized primary school.

There are 90 part-time children on roll in the Nursery provision. Children in the early years are taught in two Reception classes. The majority of the pupils are either White British or from an Indian heritage.

The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is above the national average. The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium is lower than that found in most schools. Pupil premium is additional funding provided by the government for those pupils eligible for free school meals in the last six years, pupils who have been looked after continuously for one day or more and those pupils who have been adopted from care.

The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs or disability is similar to the national average. The school meets the government's floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress. After the last inspection, the headteacher of Dartford Bridge Community Primary School was appointed to the role of executive headteacher at this school.

Dartford Bridge Community Primary School provided support with staff training and moderation. In July 2015, the current headteacher was appointed and the executive headteacher reduced her role to one day a week. The executive headteacher stopped supporting the school in December 2015.
