Description of the school

This is a smaller than average infant school. It serves an area of broadly typical social and economic circumstances. Most children are White British and live in the immediate area.

The proportions of pupils eligible for free school meals and from minority ethnic groups are much lower than found nationally. The proportions of pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities and who are learning English as an additional language are well below average. The Early Years Foundation Stage consists of a Nursery and Reception class.

Awards achieved by the school include the Basic Skills Quality Mark, the Activemark, and the Healthy Schools Award. The school has recently become part ...of Ossett Education Community Trust and is an Investor in People. New staff, including the headteacher and deputy headteacher, have been appointed since the last inspection.
