Information about this school

This is a slightly smaller-than-average-sized primary school. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is below the national average. The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is also lower.

The proportion of pupils for whom the school receives the pupil premium, which is additional funding for looked after children, pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and the children of service families, is much lower than average. No pupils in the school are looked after or from service families. The majority of pupils are from White British backgrounds.

A number of other ethnic groups are represented in varying proportions. More pupils in this school speak English as an additional language than is the case nationally; very few of them are at the early stages of learning English. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.
