Description of the school

This is an average size primary school serving an urban area of increasing social and economic disadvantage. Most pupils are White British. The proportion of pupils entering the school with learning difficulties and/or disabilities and those who speak English as an additional language has been growing in recent years, reflecting the changing nature of the school's catchment area.

Overall, however, the proportion of pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities, including those with a statement of special educational needs, is below average. The number of pupils entitled to free school meals is broadly average. It has recently gained the Healthy Schools award and Activemark status.<...br/>
