Description of the school

This is a larger than average infant school. Most pupils are of Pakistani origin, but a small proportion represents a diverse range of other ethnic backgrounds. Eighty-five per cent of pupils speak English as an additional language, which is well above average, and nearly 20% are at an early stage of learning English. The percentage of pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities is above average. These pupils’ needs cover a wide range but are mainly speech and language, behavioural and moderate learning difficulties. The Early Years Foundation Stage consists of four Reception classes.
