Information about this school

This school is a slightly larger than average-sized primary school. The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs who are supported through school action is less than half the national average. The proportion supported through school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is also lower than nationally.

A far smaller proportion of pupils are eligible for the pupil premium (additional funding for pupils in local authority care, those known to be eligible for free school meals and children from service families) than is the case nationally. It is common for there to be only one or two per class. The school does not currently have any pupils who are looked after by the local authority on roll.

The school's proportion of pupils from ethnic minority backgrounds is more than double the national average. Twelve different groups are represented in varying numbers, mirroring the diverse community in which the school is set. Nearly half the pupils in the school speak English as an additional language, a few of whom are at the early stages of learning English.

The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress. The current headteacher joined the school in the summer term of 2011. There have been a number of appointments to senior posts more recently.
