Description of the school

Collingwood is an average sized primary school situated in an area of high unemployment and financial deprivation close to Hull city centre. Most pupils enter school with attainment levels well below national expectations, particularly in their personal and social development and speaking and listening skills. The children are mainly of White British background. There are 13 children learning English as an additional language. Some 30% of pupils have learning difficulties and/or disabilities and, of these, 10 pupils have a statement of special educational need; both of which are above national averages. Of the pupils, 53% are eligible for free school meals which is also high. The number of children who leave or join the school other than at the start of the school year is above average.
