Description of the school

This school is smaller than average.

Most pupils are from White British backgrounds and nearly a quarter are from minority ethnic families. Several pupils speak English as an additional language and a small number is at an early stage of learning to speak English. The proportion of pupils entitled to free school meals is below average.

The proportion of pupils with learning difficulties or disabilities is average. Children’s attainment on entry to the school is usually below that typical for this age, especially in communication, language and literacy, and in some years it is exceptionally low. The school has achieved the Healthy Schools Award and the Active Mark.
