Description of the school

The school serves the villages of Coton and Madingley to the west of Cambridge. The percentage of pupils eligible for a free school meal is much lower than usual. The proportion of pupils who come from minority ethnic groups is broadly average. The number for whom English is not their first language is below average but rising steadily. Children in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) are taught in a mixed age Reception/Year 1 class. Attainment on entry to the Reception class is close to that expected for four year olds, although it covers a broad spectrum and often varies from year-to-year. The percentage of pupils who have learning difficulties and/or disabilities is very low, although the percentage with a statement of special educational needs is higher than usual. The school has the Basic Skills Quality Mark, Active Mark and Healthy Schools status. A pre-school group, breakfast club and after school club operate on the school site. The school’s governing body does not have responsibility for managing this provision. Key for inspection grades Grade 1 Outstanding Grade 2 Good Grade 3 Satisfactory Grade 4 Inadequate
