Description of the school

Sheredes is larger than most primary schools. It is greatly oversubscribed and new building work is being completed so that pupil numbers can increase further. It has an attached nursery. Children attend the nursery part-time. The proportion of pupils eligible for free school meals is low and relatively few pupils need additional learning support. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds is below the national average, and almost all pupils speak English as their first language. The school has gained Investors in People status, the Healthy Schools Award, the Active Mark Award and recognition from the local authority for its ICT practice since the last inspection.
