Information about this school

This is an average-sized primary school.

There is one class in each year group from Reception through to Year 6. The large majority of pupils are White British. A small minority of pupils speak English as an additional language.

A below-average proportion of pupils is eligible for pupil premium funding, which is additional funding the school receives to support pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and those in local authority care. The proportion of pupils supported through a statement of special educational need, or with an education, health or care plan, is average. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.
