Description of the school
This average-sized primary school is on the edge of the borough of Rochdale. The area is socially and economically advantaged and the proportion of pupils eligible for free school meals is low.
Most pupils are of White British heritage and all speak English as their first language. The proportion of pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities is low in comparison with the national average. The Early Years Foundation Stage provides a Reception class.
The school has achieved numerous awards, including the Healthy Schools Award in three successive years, Princess Diana Anti-bullying Awards also in three successive years, Eco-School Bronze Award, and achieved Extended Schools Status in November 2008. Extended provision is available for pupils before and after school. That provision was inspected separately, at the same time as the school inspection, and receives a separately written report.
