Description of the school

The school serves a diverse local community that consists of owner-occupier properties, private rented accommodation, social housing and bed and breakfast homeless families’ placements. Overall, the social circumstances of many pupils are disadvantaged and this is reflected in the exceptionally high proportion of pupils that are entitled to free school meals. Currently there are 26 different languages represented and over two thirds of the pupils speak English as an additional language. A few of these are at an early stage of learning English. There is a particularly high movement of pupils both in and out of the school, with many staying in the school for less than one year. The school has a specialist Language Resource Base for pupils with severe and specific speech and language disorders. These five pupils are fully integrated into classes. A new headteacher and deputy headteacher were appointed from September 2006. Key for inspection grades Grade 1 Outstanding Grade 2 Good Grade 3 Satisfactory Grade 4 Inadequate
