Description of the school

This smaller than average village primary school draws pupils from a wide rural area. Attainment on entry to the Early Years Foundation Stage is broadly typical for children’s age. The proportion of pupils eligible for free school meals is well below average. Most pupils are from a White British background and nearly all speak English as their first language. The proportion of pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities or those who have a statement of special educational need, is well below average, with the largest group having moderate learning difficulties. A before-school club is run by a private provider for an hour each school day. The school holds a number of awards, including Healthy Schools, Eco-school (silver), Primary Geography Mark, Sports Mark and ICT Mark.
