Pupils in the early years and Key Stage 1 do not have enough opportunities to practise and improve their writing skills. Some teaching of phonics (the sounds that letters make) is less engaging and as a result, pupils make slower progress in these sessions. There are limited opportunities for pupils to explain how they solved problems in mathematics.

The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is below that found nationally.

The vast majority of pupils are of White British heritage. Very few pupils speak English as an additional language. The school works closely with other schools in the locality as part of the East Grinstead Group of Schools.
