Description of the school

The school was opened in September 2006, and was the result of an amalgamation between Moredon Infant School and Moredon Junior School. The school is much larger than most primary schools. Most pupils are from a White British background. The number of pupils eligible for free school meals is similar to the national average. The proportion of pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities is higher than average, as is the proportion of pupils with a statement of special educational need. In recognition of its work, the school has received Basic Skills, Artsmark Silver, Healthy School and Eco Schools Bronze awards. The school is in a federation with a neighbouring primary school, with the headteacher of this school being headteacher of both schools.
