Information about this school

Elston Hall is much larger than the average-sized primary school. The Early Years Foundation Stage is made up of two Nursery classes, with 80 children attending part time, and three full-time Reception classes.

The majority of pupils are White British. Other pupils are mostly of Caribbean or Indian heritage. Around 40% of pupils are eligible for the pupil premium.

This is above the national average. The pupil premium is additional funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and those looked after by the local authority. At 20%, the proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs, is above the national average.

The school meets the government's current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress. The school manages a before and after-school childcare facility. The executive headteacher and leadership team are supporting another local school.
