Description of the school

This school is larger than the majority of primary schools. The number of pupils known to be eligible for a free school meal is very low.

The percentage of pupils who come from a minority ethnic group is below average, as is that for pupils who speak English as an additional language. Children in the Early Years Foundation Stage are taught in two Reception classes. In most years their attainment on entry is close to that expected for their age.

The percentage of pupils who have learning difficulties and/or disabilities is lower than usual. The majority of these pupils have dyslexia or another form of moderate learning difficulty. There are very few pupils who have a statement of s...pecial educational needs.

The school holds several awards, recognising its work in a variety of areas. These include: the DCFS International Award, Healthy Schools, Geography Bronze Mark, Activemark, and the Eco School Bronze level award. The school is affiliated to the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust.
