Information about this school

This infant and nursery school is about the same size as the average-size primary school. Children attend part-time in the Nursery.

Most pupils are White British. The largest minority ethnic group is of Indian heritage. A below-average proportion speaks English as an additional language.

At around 30%, an average proportion of pupils are disadvantaged and eligible for support through the pupil premium. Around a fifth of the pupils are identified as disabled pupils or with special educational needs. The proportion supported at school action is below average.

The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is above average. Very few have education, health and care plans. The school provides professional development to other schools through its links with an independent consultant.

Since the last inspection, the headteacher, deputy headteacher, the Key Stage 1 leader and the leader of the Early Years Foundation Stage are new to their posts of responsibility. Two teachers have recently joined the school. A breakfast club is run by the school and was part of this inspection.
