Information about this school

The school is larger than the average-sized primary school. Most pupils are White British, with around 10% from a range of minority ethnic groups.

Very few pupils speak English as an additional language The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, for whom the school receives additional funding through the pupil premium, is well below average. (The pupil premium provides additional funding for children in the care of the local authority, children of parents serving in the armed forces and for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals.) The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is below average.

The proportion supported through school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is also below average. These needs relate mainly to moderate learning difficulties and emotional or behavioural problems. The school hosts an additional resource base for children who find communication and social interaction difficult.

This is managed by the local authority's special needs service. There are currently 11 pupils on roll, all of whom come from outside the school's usual catchment area. The school meets the government's floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.
