Description of the school

Over half the pupils in this small and oversubscribed village school live locally and the rest travel from further away because of the school’s popularity. The wide catchment area represents a cross-section of socio-economic backgrounds.

Below average numbers take free school meals. An above average number of pupils have learning difficulties and disabilities but there are no pupils with a statement of special needs. Nearly all pupils are from White British families and almost all have English as their first language.

Children start in Reception with knowledge and skills that are broadly average. The majority of them have attended a state nursery or playgroup. The school holds the Artsmark Silver award.
