Description of the school

The school serves an area of some severe social and economic disadvantage. The proportion of pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities is broadly average. There are a very small proportion of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds. Since the previous inspection the school has significantly extended its childcare and daycare provision. The daycare offers places for babies and toddlers in purpose built facilities and runs from 07.30 to 17.45. Not all of these children go on to the school Nursery, and some children join the Nursery who have not benefited from the daycare provision. There are breakfast and after-school clubs that cater from birth to 11 years and a holiday club. The Children’s Centre caters for pre-natal and post-natal care and can provide crèche facilities. The school is in the process of organising the EYFS premises and resources to allow all children from this key stage to access the full range of facilities. The outdoor learning area has recently been extended and is now accessible to all children from two years of age to the end of the Reception.
