Information about this school

The school is smaller than the average primary school. It has one full-time Reception class and seven classes for Years 1 to 6. Two classes are for combined Years 1 and 2. Most pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium (extra government funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals or children who are looked after by the local authority) is well below average. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is below the national average. The school runs a breakfast club. The executive headteacher took on the role in September 2013. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics.
