Information about this school

This school is much smaller than the average-sized primary school. All pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported by school action is below average.

The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement is well below average. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for pupil premium funding (additional funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, those looked after by the local authority and children of service families) is well below average. The school meets the government's current floor targets, which set the minimum expectation for pupils' attainment and progress.

In addition to the headteacher, who has a significant teaching commitment, the school has two full-time teachers and a part-time teacher. Pupils are split into three classes for most lessons and four for mathematics. The school is currently recruiting one permanent full-time teacher.
