Description of the school

Most pupils in this large infant school are from White British families, and there is a higher than usual proportion from a wide range of minority ethnic backgrounds. The proportion whose first language is not English is above average and 17 home languages are represented in the school. The proportion entitled to free school meals is below average, as is the proportion with learning difficulties and/or disabilities. The school has a large Nursery, and about half of the children transfer to the Reception classes, with the remainder going to other local schools. About half of the children enter the Reception classes from a wide range of other pre-school providers. Attainment on entry to Reception is similar to the national expectations, although there are strengths in the children’s personal development, their speech and knowledge of number. The school is part of extended school consortium, offering a wide range of out-of-hours provision for children and adults. It has a number of awards, including Investors in People, Playground Partnerships, Healthy Schools and the Early Years Quality Mark.
