Information about this school

Since the previous inspection, Orleans Infant School has been designated as a primary school from July 2012. It is undergoing the transition from a three-form entry infant school to a two-form entry primary school. A neighbouring school, St Stephens, previously a junior school is also becoming a primary school.

At the time of the inspection, Year 4 were the oldest cohort in the school and there were four Year 2 classes. It is a larger than average sized primary school. Two thirds of the pupils are of White British origin.

The rest of the pupils are from a wide range of ethnic backgrounds, the largest group being from Any Other White background. A significant proportion of these are learning English as an additional language. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium (additional government funding for those pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, children who are looked after and children of service families) is much lower than average.

The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported at school action is below average. The proportion of those supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is also below average. The school does not have access to any alternative provision.
