Description of the school

Cuckoo Hall is a very large primary school and is expanding to accommodate an increasing demand for places. Nursery and Reception children join the school in the year in which they will be three or four years of age respectively and both year groups comprise the school’s Early Years Foundation Stage. The Nursery children attend part-time and there are currently three full-time Reception classes with plans to expand to four classes in September 2009. Throughout the school there is significant diversity represented by a wide range of minority ethnic groups. In addition to the majority who are from White British, Black African, Caribbean or Turkish backgrounds, other groups include pupils of Asian or Eastern European heritage. Compared with other schools, a much higher proportion of pupils are in the early stages of learning English and most of these are in the Early Years Foundation Stage or in Years 1 and 2. The percentage of pupils eligible for free school meals is well above the national average. The proportion of pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities is above average. The main areas of need are in speech and language, or pupils have specific learning difficulties such as autism or emotional and social difficulties. The school has extensive links with other schools, colleges and organisations, including business partnerships. The school has a number of nationally accredited awards, including the Healthy School, Activemark and the Leading Parent Partnership awards.
