Ofsted Inspection Rating Outstanding
This inspection rating relates to a predecessor school. When a school, converts to an academy, is taken over or closes and reopens as a new school a formal link is created between the new school and the old school, by the Department for Education. Where the new school has not yet been inspected, we show the inspection history of the predecessor school, as we believe it still has significance.

Description of the school

This is a larger than average junior school serving an area of mainly private housing in rural Cambridgeshire. The number of children eligible for free school meals is well below average. Most pupils are of White British heritage with a small number from minority ethnic backgrounds. Only a small number do not have English as their home language. A small number of children are from Traveller communities. The numbers of children with learning difficulties and with statements of their special educational need are higher than is usually found. When children start at the school in Year 3 their standards are broadly average. Key for inspection grades Grade 1 Outstanding Grade 2 Good Grade 3 Satisfactory Grade 4 Inadequate
