This is an average-sized primary school. About one in five pupils are known to be eligible for the pupil premium (additional government funding which supports pupils eligible for free school meals and those looked after by the local authority).

This is average. One in 16 pupils is disabled or has special educational needs. This is below average.

Just over a half of pupils belong to ethnic groups other than White British. About one in five are from Black African or Black Caribbean families. About a quarter of pupils do not have English as their first langauge.

The school meets the government's floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics. There is a wide range of before- and after-school clubs which are managed by external providers. They were not looked at as part of this inspection.

Children attend Reception on a full-time basis and Nursery children attend on a part-time basis. The Early Years Foundation Stage is recognized as exceptional provision by the local authority. The headteacher is providing training to schools in the computing part of the new National Curriculum.

The school has also provided training to schools in increasing the proportion of pupils achieving Level 6 in reading. Just over three years ago, following the resignation of the then headteacher, the current headteacher and deputy headteacher took up their posts. The school appointed two teachers who are new to the profession in September 2014.
